You may have seen Big Bird’s cameo appearance in a video promoting President Obama.
Poor old Big Bird. He is a national icon. Yet here is a Presidential candidate who has him in the cross hairs.
I can understand Big Bird’s concern. Sesame Street got $1,000,000 out of President Obama’s stimulus bill. Job creation: 1.5 jobs.
Big Bird would hate to see those 1.7 jobs cut.
This money was in addition to the usual annual subsidy from the government.
Without government subsidies, Big Bird might be grounded for good. No more Grover, either. No more Oscar the Grouch.
(My guess is that Oscar is going to write in “Ron Paul.” That’s what we grouches do.)
