Bloomberg TV Debuts Countdown to Shutdown Clock

Despite my personal belief that a government shutdown is highly unlikely, it’s impossible to ignore the media attention directed at the sensational story.  One such example comes from Bloomberg News today: check out the below screen grab of  Bloomberg TV’s Peter Cook reporting from the Hill–complete with government shutdown countdown clock.  Brings back sweet memories of Y2K, no?

More ‘fun with government shutdown’ references: National Journal has a government shutdown clock on their Twitter handle http://twitter.com/govt_shutdown and Government Executive is counting down on their homepage at http://www.govexec.com.
