Do they even know that Big Bird isn’t technically a Muppet?
(Reuters) Plans to save Big Bird, the fuzzy yellow character on U.S. public television’s “Sesame Street,” from possible extinction are taking shape in the form of a puppet-based protest next month dubbed the “Million Muppet March.”
The demonstration is planned for November 3 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., three days before the general election.
Michael Bellavia, 43, an animation executive from Los Angeles, and Chris Mecham, 46, a university student in Idaho, separately came up with the Million Muppet March idea in response.
Bellavia bought the Internet address www.millionmuppetmarch.com during the debate and discovered Mecham had already started a Facebook page by the same name.
And there you go, this is what Democrats are concerned with: a possible cut of $8 million dollars from the federal budget for Sesame Street. They aren’t concerned with Obama adding over $5 trillion in new debt in less than 4 years, wasting almost a trillion dollars on a Stimulus that failed, giving billion upon billions to “green” energy companies that go bankrupt, trillion dollar deficits, cutting billions from the defense of the USA, not spending the money to protect our Libyan consulate, record numbers of people dropping out of the jobs market in despair, record numbers of people on food stamps…..no, they’re worried about Big Bird. Who’s part of the 1%.
In fairness, there is also a Millionaire Muppet March, to be held in protest of the protest, but, it seems more like a response to the foolish Million Muppet March than seriously expecting people to show up.
The Jawa Report highlights how stupid this all is.
Jammie Wearing Fool: Nothing like a 46-year-old student/Muppet lover. Maybe he can hook up with aging student Sandra Fluke while he’s in DC.
Instapundit: This march, built around a surreal television character on the weekend before the election, sounds very much like Stewart and Colbert’s “Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear” — the weekend before Congress changed parties.
