George Will on Sunday's "This Week" said what likely has been on the minds of right-thinking Americans for many decades.
"NPR is run by people who don't like people like me" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
JAKE TAPPER, HOST: Cokie, you've been at NPR for almost 40 years. Obviously this institution means a lot to you, but why should we care?
COKIE ROBERTS: Look, I should just say that they did then reject that money, and sent internal e-mails basically saying this is totally unacceptable. We have to have tax forms, all of that. So, that should be stated. But, look, we should care because 34 million people listen every week and want to get the news that you get there, that you can't get any place else. NPRs got seventeen foreign bureaus. That's something you can't say for any other broadcast organization these days. And brings you terrific information, day in and day out, week in and week out. And the reporters who are there on the line, being shot at in North Africa at the moment are being very badly served by the management thats now gone.

Hey, George, NPR doesn’t like America. It’s not personal.
Hey, cokie, don’t you have a conflict-of-interest (BIG TIME) in making your smarmy, idiotic, brainless, syncopanic supportive comments about NPR? Go away, you ignorant s...!
A lot of people don’t like people like George, LOL!
Change your stage name to Ivan Lenin and they will worship you.
I might start watching this again if Tapper will remain the host, but I can’t stand Amanpour.
If it were just a matter of them not liking us that’s be ok. They loath, despise, and fear us.
To quote Rush, they hope we fail.
More of a paraphrase than a quote but you know what I mean.
That’s not a true statement, George. NPR makes a living from people like you. You’re the token beltway conservative who knows just how long his leash is.
Here's idiotic and brainless:
But hey, she makes Scarborough look better.
Actually, come to think of it, I don't like NPR OR George Will.
You must have known my Dad, who did his level best to immortalize that term. I still don’t know the meaning of it, though.
Well, I admire the sentiment, but he’s precisely the sort that NPR would prefer to deal with.
George Will of the people, lol. Please.
So is the Tea Party. I hate RINOs almost as much as I hate liberals.
They don’t like Juan Williams either so it must not be a political thing.
Most people today associate this with the worthless, disposable material a Tinker would use to hold solder in place while fixing tinware. Within this context, it's really a dam -- so it should be spelled "Tinker's dam".
The second meaning, considered by many to be older and more original, concerns the apparent habit of Tinkers to swear, like, well, sailors. Since Tinkers would cuss so frequently, people tended to ignore their bad language and pay it no mind.
