It's a special weekend edition of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience. John Hinderker of Power Line and Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas reconvene to review the vital issues of our time. Topics addressed include:
* Syria (not really)
* The Federal government shutdown (including an appearance by 2006 Cartoon Obama)
* The roll out of Obamacare
* Loons of the Week (a Reid, Pelosi, Obama triple header)
* This Week in Gate Keeping (English tart edition)
We were also joined by the great John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting. Bookmarks is his terrific new album, which they discuss and also get into John's thoughts on songwriting, his hope for greater unity among Americans, and his experience in not fitting in to the dominant liberal culture of show business.
