"Let's not take this out of context here. Let's not blow this out of proportion. They they are shut down. And why? Because the Senate decided not to do their job. Not the House, but the Senate. The Democrats under Harry Reid decided to take Sunday off," Glenn said.
But Reid's lack of leadership hasn't stopped him from lamenting all the wonderful thing that won't be available without government. Like...the post office? No. Like...the TSA!? Nope, you'll still be able to get groped at the airport by the sweaty guy in surgical gloves. No...it's the closing of Lake Mead that has driven Reid to the depths of despair.
"We have 15,000 people a day come to Lake Mead," Harry Reid said. "Spending huge amounts of money. They help the economy."
Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the United States, and is a popular recreational destination for people looking to go boating, water skiing, or just catch up on their tan.
"There's nowhere else you could recreate if Lake Mead is closed," Pat (sarcastically) lamented.
The government shutdown has closed down national parks and monuments - but is it really that hard to just see them?
"Like, I'm driving to Mount Rushmore today.Today was the day I was going to go to Mount Rushmore. It's closed. They put a curtain over it?" Glenn asked.
