Skip to comments.NPR uses your tax dollars so you can "Learn to Speak Tea Bag"

Let me get this straight, the suits at NPR (and by "suits" I mean ponytails-and-Birkenstocks) have pressured their commentators Juan Williams and Mara Liasson over appearences on Fox News because they think it damages NPR's credibility. And yet, they think that using your tax dollars for content such as "Learn to Speak Tea Bag" is perfectly ok. Huh.
Better the Teabagger than the Teabaggee.
That’s funny. I always thought that having Juan and Mara on Fox News gave NPR a shred of credibility. Not that I agree with them most of the time, but at least they aren’t loony liberals.
When we take over Congress the first thing we do is defund NPR!!
I think they believe they will impress others with their sophistication, but it generally just reveals them as kneejerk liberal saps parading around like foppish intellectual dandies.
If you ever learned anything from NPR, it was probably wrong.
I had a co-worker who would actually get a smug look on his face when talking about something he'd heard on NPR.
This is a classic fascist political tactic to caricaturize and demonize the “enemy” , in order to foment public hatred
485+ comments. NPR is being savaged and the left is rather silent. Register and let ‘em know what you think. It takes less than 30 seconds.
And please pass the NPR link over to your congress critter so they can think about what they are funding..
Here's my comments from the site:

Wow, that was lame, even for something produced by a government-run operation. The level of sophistication and insight in this political piece rivals something you'd find on a redneck comedy tour. This difference is that the redneck comedians aren't on the public dole. They succeed in a competitive free market. My tax dollars have to fund juvenile pap like this, complete with the homophobic references? Remember when political humor came from the likes of Jonathan Swift, Mark Twain, or Will Rogers? Would NPR be proud to present this alongside those examples of political humor? Defund this useless, biased government operation. If you just can't let the people who earn their money keep it, at least give the loot to the hungry, rather than intellectual midgets with passable Flash skills.
