Isn't it pathetic . We are in dire economic times and LEFTY finds that Big Bird is a major issue.

Typical LEFTY.

A Government Corporation set up to benefit the American people should profit the American people. Confiscate all the HUGE profits, accounts and ventures of the CPB and return them to the American people, who created and funded the corporation.

Obama and his idiot supporters latching onto Big Bird shows the mediocrity of their minds.

The Stars will come to Big Bird's defense? They are doing what exactly, donating their own money to keep Big Bird on TV? Maybe they should PUT THEIR MONEY WHERE THEIR MOUTH IS. HOW ABOUT IT STARS? Don't disappoint those 8 year olds and their parents who need TV to babysit their kids.

When facts are absent and intelligence is missing, then resort to DIVERSION DIVERSION DIVERSION DIVERSION DIVERSION.

Typical propaganda in full swing by the Socialists, they get whipped on camera so they have to try to appeal/pander to soccer moms and to the children with emotional nonsense. Their insulting diversionary tactics are going to backfire and create a whole generation of American loving Conservatives.

That's fine. But I'm not paying for NPRs biased political positions as much as I like Sesame Street. Publicly funded entities are not allowed to take political sides. You did know that, right? Besides, are you really going to vote for Obama, the "Butcher of Benghazi"? the Sultan of Solyndra, the Father of Fast and Furious? Really?

Au contraire, Nutjob. It is the soulless, cretinous Mitt Romney who is the major issue. Big Bird will survive, but Mr. Romney's arrogance will send him into a well-deserved oblivion.

Votes go to Romney's website ( www.mittromney.com ) and ask him to say a prayer for Big Bird.

Calling a compassionate and effective father, husband and businessman soulless and cretinous shows only your ridiculous, insane extremism, which actually sounds almost as bad as the extremism of Obama responding to the murder of four in Libya by knowingly inflaming with false rhetoric the Islamic rabble in 20 countries to riot and murder to take American's attention off his failure to protect his own diplomats.

I don't see why liberals are getting so upset over Big Bird, most liberals get their educational programming from Jerry Springer.

Where'd you get YOUR education. The first letter of a sentence is always capitalized, you dolt. You might have learned that if your mother had you watch Sesame Street instead of locking you in the bedroom while she smoked crack.
