    Weenie boy mocks anything that moves....He's a sophomoric Alan Grayson.

    Maybe he should get a career in stand-up or talk radio.

    He should co-host with Mahar. They're like Forest and Jenny.. like peas and carrots.

    What struck me was the irony that Wiener should give enough of a shit to grandstand over an issue for which his Lib NYC consituants should be least interested.

    In his district, NPR's programming should be able to find a great market, and be able to sustain itself quite easily. The main arguement against defunding NPR is that it would eliminate its programming in rural areas where there would be NO OPTIONS.

    Unintelligent? Childish? He makes a point that there are far more important issues that Congress needs to be focused on. Especially if a emergency session is going to be called.

    For example, an audit posted online this week by the Defense Department's inspector general found that the Pentagon overpaid by as much as $200 million on military contracts worth $2.7 billion. How many hearings have been held with seriously trying to rein down wasteful or fraudulent spending in the defense sector?

    There is also the issue of the GOP not waiting 72 hours when it comes to the bill. If they're not willing to wait 72 hours on the smaller issues such as these, can we trust them on the larger ones? He raises a valid point.

    I didn't like it when Obama broke a similar promise, and I sure as hell don't like it now when the GOP did the same.

    Shouldn't smaller issues take less time to contemplate?

    Yes, he's fucking childish.

    When he doesn't get to reframe any given question asked to the way he'd ask it of himself (i.e. he doesn't get to spin his way out) and is pressed to answer the question as asked, he stands there looking around, whistling and rolling his eyes.

    Somehow or another, he makes Al Fraken look statesmanlike.

    We need the NPR money to fund another military action in the ME...

    ...at the tacit request of British Petroleum and friends.
