Get it? Get it? Also, we need to cut 'fluffery' spending on NPR

(Newser) – Sarah Palin, not surprisingly, wasn’t a fan of President Obama’s State of the Union address. She joked with Greta Van Susteren last night that his theme “was the WTF, you know, winning the future,” which was appropriate because “there were a lot of WTF moments throughout that speech.” Specifically, she took issue with his “off base” ideas about how to create jobs: “Obviously government growth won't create any jobs, it's the private sector that can create the jobs.”

She offered her ideas on where government should cut spending: First to go should be “the fluffery like NPR and National Endowment for the Arts, those are obvious,” but she also wants to halt funding for ObamaCare, cap-and-tax programs, and entitlement programs. How about the evening’s other two addresses, from Republicans Paul Ryan and Michele Bachmann? Those “conservative common-sense messages were really good and they were sound,” Palin said. “They were sound because they were in opposition to President Obama's message."
