Sesame Street says they are non political and don’t want anything to do with endorsing a candidate, so they’d like Obama to take the Bird out of his ad.
Even though the other candidate vowed death to Big Bird???
Even though that candidate’s only idea of PBS seems to be a kiddie show, and he boasted about wanting to terminate it–telling that to the moderator who works for PBS???
Even though getting rid of PBS funding would hardly be the salvation for our nation’s economic woes, not to mention our cultural needs and overall spirit???
This is for the birds.
