HWX, with Rep. Tom Cotton

It’s a Saturday Afternoon special edition of the Hinderaker-Ward Experience (HWX).  John Hinderaker of Power Line and Brian Ward of Fraters Libertas reconvene to discuss the vital issues of the day:

*  John’s lonely holiday so far, decorating a fake tree by himself while drinking

*  The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013

*  John Boehner’s criticisms of conservative activist groups

*  The funeral of Nelson Mandela (with bonus Loon of the Week)

*  Time’s Man of the Year, Pope Francis (with bonus This Week in Gate Keeping)

Also joining the show was special guest Rep. Tom Cotton (AR) who lends his insight into why he opposed the Ryan-Murray budget compromise and his upcoming Senate race against Mark Prior in 2014.
