Save NPR and PBS (again and again?!)

Douchebags... Douchebags! Yip yip yip yip! Doooouchebags!

Don't these dicks have kids? Who's gonna provide their kids with kickass educational children's programming? Their interns and craigslist escorts?

Check out the latest at 170 Million Americans for Public Broadcasting and sign the MoveOn petition, copy/pasted message follows below...

Dear MoveOn member,

I guess we shouldn't be surprised.

With Republicans back in charge of the House of Representatives, funding for NPR and PBS is in grave danger. Again.

The Republicans just released their budget proposal, and it zeroes out funding for both NPR and PBS—the worst proposal in more than a decade.1

They probably think that no one will notice these cuts in the midst of so many others. But the millions of listeners and viewers who rely on public broadcasting for "Sesame Street," "All Things Considered," and independent journalism will notice.

We need to tell Republicans that cutting off funding was unacceptable last time they were in charge, and it's unacceptable now.

Add your name to the petition to save NPR and PBS

The petition says: "Congress must protect NPR and PBS and guarantee them permanent funding, free from political meddling."

Thanks for all you do.
