Whats a ball Gag ?
Republicans controlled congress for a good part of 20 years, yet could not kill NPR and the repellent National Endowment for the Arts?
this is part of the reason Republicans will fail in the future (oh, and by the way, don’t count on Obamacare being repealled regardless of how big the swing in November)
Of course, a ball gag for Andrew Sullivan is much cheaper.
WHYY do libtards get to the front of the line? WHYY are libtards so concerned about an opposing viewpoint? WHYY did that damn public TV station mimic a popular word of inquiery? WHYY, I ask? WHYY?
That’s scary why are they wearing them i don’t get it looks uncomfortable
he supplies his own.
Why did PBS get increased funding in every Republican administration from Reagan to GW Bush?
Yep, that’s a ball gag. When you are force to wear one, you are very . . . far from okay.
PBS = PALISIMIAN BROADCASTING STATIONS
