    See, this is what happens when you wander off the NPR reservation and voice an independent thought:

    Google "Shirley Sherrod" and NPR for shits and giggles.

    Remember all the hand-wringing over her firing?

    I can't stand to listen to Juan Williams, but I feel badly for him, losing his job for making a non-PC remark. I admired him for telling the truth that most of us agree with anyway. Sad. The man works hard for a living....

    I thought Fox News was the one who was supposed to dump on the black guy?

    Mara Liasson from NPR is also affiliated with Fox and I *heart* hearing that woman speak. She is often on Special Report with Bret Baier and my all time fave Fox pundit, Dr. Charles Krauthammer. Love to look at CK in those clothes he, or someone, puts together for him to wear. So classy.. Mara always looks classy too. Very professional, each. :)

    I think he's been having trouble with NPR since 2008 when they turned down a White House interview with GW. The WH wanted Williams to do the interview, NPR said no, so he did the interview... for Fox.

    Ooops...

    Poor old black Juan strayed off the liberal plantation, and got a Clarence Thomas styled high tech lynching.

    "I said to myself, 'If this guy doesn't look like an Arab terrorist, then nothing does.' Then I gave myself a mental slap, because in this day and age, it's not nice to say things like this."
