Street Fight!

– – It came as rather a surprise when Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the first presidential debate declared that he would cut funding to the PBS network, while maintaining that he liked the PBS monitor of the debate, and also loved PBS Sesame Street icon, Big Bird.  Apparently, this is tough love.

Now the U.S. federal government contributes about 15% of the PBS operating budget, an amount equal to .01% of the federal budget.  It’s an amount that the Pentagon burns through in a mere six hours!  At least Big Bird found out that he has a lot of friends, at one point during the debate generating 17,000 tweets per second, which I guess is appropriate.  As the Trashmen prophetically told us in the Surfin’ Bird song, “The bird is the word!”

    And, if Romney ever had Big Bird over to the White House, it would probably be as the main course (with cranberry sauce).
