Welcome to October, brought to you by CREDO Mobile, our newest sponsor! Greg Dworkin reviews the devastating NBC/WSJ shutdown polling, the strongest evidence yet of the destruction of the Republican brand, and recaps the state of play. Does brand implosion threaten their control of the House? Ruin chances of winning the Senate? Then comedian, cartoonist, and radio personality Matt Filipowicz joins us to chime in on the day's news, and tells us about his latest project: his MST3K style “live-riffing” of Atlas Shrugged Part One! We finish out the week with a peek in on the 1% of the 1% (including an actual person named "Muffy") as they hold a whine & cheese send-off for Michael Bloomberg's girlfriend; The Hill's coverage of a little-noticed additional Republican demand regarding Obamacare; how Crazy Ted Yoho bullshits his constituents about his position on paying furloughed federal workers, and; a Seattle #GunFAIL case's outcome is much better than those from SC and MD yesterday.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
