• House Votes to Defund NPR

    What a weird coincidence! All (except one) the people who voted in favor of defunding NPR were Republicans and all the people who voted against were Democrats.

    What are the odds?

    Voting in favor were 235 Republicans and one Democrat, Rep. Heath Shuler (N.C.), while all 181 Democrats present voted "no." The final vote on the bill is expected to take place at 1:45 p.m…

    Democrats argued that the bill would not actually lower the deficit and charged that Republicans were simply taking aim at NPR because they disagree with its content.

    "This bill does not cut one dollar, one dime, one penny from the federal deficit," [Rep. James McGovern (D-Mass.)] said, adding that if the debate is about whether or not the American people should be forced to subsidize content they disagree with, federal funding of advertising on Fox News Channel should also be up for debate.

    Hahahaha. Funny joke, Rep. McGovern. But come on. Serious people are trying to have a serious conversation about making a cheap political potshot over here. Take that funny stuff outside.
