I'll be damned, I actually felt all warm inside after watching this.

Republicans have been belly aching about PBS ever since I can remember. It represents so little in the budget. They just hate anything that educates people. It's not on their agenda.

PBS is important. I agree it represents a small portion of the budget. Guess the Republicans have their priorities on wealth.
