I'm Sorry Andrew, Are You New Here?

Rip van Winkle Sully,

They're making a decision about whether to end federal subsidies to a decades old news organization because of Juan Williams? More to the point, the GOP rank-and-file could force a vote on a federal spending cut, and they picked NPR? I have a sinking feeling that this is what the GOP intends to do for two years: ride populist base fads into trivial nicks in spending, while never facing up to fiscal reality.

Is this news to anyone on the planet who is not named Andrew Sullivan? Has he been asleep since 1992? Of course that's what they are going to do! That's what they ALWAYS do.
