Big Bird is doing just fine, with or without Uncle Sam’s handout
Like many Americans, I didn’t watch last week’s presidential debate as it aired. Instead, I watched it on replay so I didn’t lose quality time with my kids.
But, like many of those who watched it, live or otherwise, it’s difficult to say it wasn’t an incredible victory for Gov. Mitt Romney. When the only point your opponent can make is that you want to defund “Big Bird,” you know you had a good day.
Elections aren’t won by single debates, though, a point I’m sure the Romney camp is well aware. And, typically, I really wouldn’t have anything to say about it. But the whole Big Bird issue has suddenly taken flight — OK, so perhaps there’s an intended pun there — and I can’t help but point out the hypocrisy of such a debate argument.
