This follows Sarah Palin’s Facebook post from earlier today: Juan Williams: Going Rogue
At a time when our country is dangerously in debt and looking for areas of federal spending to cut, I think we’ve found a good candidate for defunding.

The Washington Times piles on: EDITORIAL: Cut off NPR
Seize the moment, Republicans!
And the beat goes on….
