PRIORITIES….First we got two solid weeks of Republicans screeching over the MoveOn ad. Then we got Republicans screeching over the possibility that maybe the New York Times didn’t charge MoveOn enough for their ad. Now we have Republicans screeching about cutting off Columbia University’s funding because it provided a forum in which people could laugh at the inanities of Iran’s current president.

That’s a lot of screeching over trivia. Don’t Republicans have anything better to do?

No? Well, OK then.
