Oh sure, the saying goes that no one listens to The Great White Shank. But I keep trying to tell y’all that I don’t speak no jive: when I post something you can take it to the bank that I’m (as the liberal moonbats like to say) “speaking truth to power”.

* Note I was right about Hillary Clinton’s candidacy flogging the dog long before Barack Obama’s candidacy caught fire.

* Note I was right about President Barack Obama being a coming train wreck as a President due to his inexperience and incompetence long before 2010’s ridiculous “Recovery Summer”, which has been anything but.

* Note I was right about the Obama administration’s “Nixonian characteristics” long before observers on both the left and the right of the political spectrum noticing the same similarities in our current President.

* Note I was right about predicting that Eric Holder’s Justice Department dropping that case against those New Black Panthers whose presence outside a Philadephia polling station would bcome a big deal – just wait until the Republicans are back in charge in the House (and perhaps the Senate). This is gonna explode on the administration before too long – especially after the unprecedented and systematic voter fraud that’s about to take place in less than two weeks.

* Note that just last month, I was right about what I wrote about how the days of National Public Radio (NPR) sucking off the public trough to help support its Democratic Party / liberal left programming ought to be a thing of the past.

And that is why, ultimately, the Juan Williams firing is destined to become a defining moment in the history of NPR and its parent company, the Corporation For Public Broadcasting. Bad enough that Williams got sacked for absolutely no reason (not only because nothing he said was the slightest bit controversial, but because NPR folks have uttered far more outrageous comments in the past without any form of public rebuke), but then NPR’s CEO shows her true nature by making an insulting and disgraceful remark questioning his mental health.

In some ways this is a win/win situation for nearly everyone (pity the saps ‘shilling for sheckels’ the next time NPR conducts yet another interminable “pledge week”): Williams gets a handsome new contract from Fox News (an organization that truly appreciates journalistic talent), and finally, NPR is revealed to all for what it has been for a long time – a taxpayer-funded mouthpiece for the left, even as it takes a cool $1.8 mil from socialist billionaire George Soros to push Democratic Party talking points and the liberal left’s agenda. Consider:

* NPR’s continual characterization of the Tea Party movement as a bunch of right-wing loons, bigots, xenophobes, racists, and extremists.

* NPR’s incessant one-sided reporting and dismissal of Christine O’Donnell, Sarah Palin, Meg Whitman, Carly Fiorina, and any other successful women who dare to run for political office while not toeing the feminist agenda pushed by the washed up, worn-out hags at the National Order of Women (NOW).

* NPR’s daily savaging of former President George W. Bush and his administration for the economy (5% unemployment – how awful!) and the War on Terror; now, with Barack Obama as President, you hear nary a hint of protest as Americans and NATO troops continue to die in ever-increasing numbers.

Look, I would have absolutely no problem with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and NPR if they had to compete in the media marketplace like everyone else. But to be completely and unabashedly biased to one side of the political spectrum in its programming (NPR’s “All Things Considered” ought to be renamed “No Things Considered”) while taking money from the U.S. taxpayers (anywhere between $9 mil and $20 mil annually based on reports) is outrageous and absurd in this day and age. Cut their purse strings and let them fend for themselves as a totally-private media organization and see how well they do. Prediction: it would be another Air America.

The Juan Williams controversy reminds me of that scene in “Tin Cup” where Roy McAvoy’s caddie tells him that when a defining moment comes, either you define the moment or the moment defines you. For NPR, its disgraceful, classless, and despicable treatment of someone with the integrity and journalistic pedigree of Juan Williams is a moment that has defined them forever.

And it couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch of people.

Enjoy your next “Pledge Week”, kids.
