Ron Schilling: Short-Termer

Don't know the name?

He's the bag-man for NPR (they call him President NPR Foundation and SVP Development--which translates "bag-man." Get the money, put it in the bag.)

Anyhow, Schilling has opinions about TEA Party people.

The fun starts around 2:00 on the video, or you can read this:

The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved in people’s personal lives and very fundamental Christian – I wouldn’t even call it Christian. It’s this weird evangelical kind of move,” declared Schiller, who runs NPR’s foundation.

.....Schiller wastes little time before attacking conservatives. The Republican Party, Schiller says, has been “hijacked by this group.” The man posing as Malik finishes the sentence by adding, “the radical, racist, Islamaphobic, Tea Party people.” Schiller agrees and intensifies the criticism, saying that the Tea Party people aren’t “just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.

Hey, Ron! See that big bus just behind you? The one that's accelerating?

By the way, Schilling IS a 'short-termer.' He's going to be running the Aspen Institute next month. First thing he'll do: make sure there are no TEA Party people on the housekeeping staff.
