1. Kanye West Goes Super Kanye West All Over Jimmy Kimmel On Jimmy Kimmel Live
Kanye West sat down with Jimmy Kimmel last night to bury the hatchet over their recent Twitter feud and so that Kanye could explain to Kimmel and the rest of the world why he is such an important person and why all of his ideas are so great and how he can make everybody's lives so much better if only people would take him more seriously. Mostly the second part actually.
Kanye just beat the world record for longest sentence on a talk show.— Melissa Stetten (@MelissaStetten) October 10, 2013
2. Republicans Getting What They Wanted Out Of Government Shutdown If What They Wanted Was Record Low Popularity Ratings
As the bowels of Congress finally start to loosen up enough to maybe push a budget measure through and end the government shutdown, the Republican Party is looking at historically low popularity ratings. Its 28% popularity rating isn't just 15 points below Democrats, it's 3 points below the party's previous worst rating from back in 1999 during the Clinton impeachment debate. It's also the lowest recorded since Gallup's started tracking congressional approval in 1992. So think about that next time you say this government shutdown isn't achieving anything.
