    Romney is simply this years Bob Dole or Mccain. It's obvious when the powers that be want the incumbent to cruise to an easy victory: They put an immensely weak character as an opponent ala old school WWF wrestling had jobbers. Im not going to say Romney will definitely not win...I just don't see it in the cards unless there's some 1979 Carter October surprise thing

    Boy, if MADtv were still on, they'd be doing 10 to 20 minutes on this with their SST parody sketches.

    GORDON: Hey kids! Bird! What IS goin' on?
    BILLY: A bunch of airplanes are dropping bombs all over Sesame Street!
    SALLY: And Bird has been dodging bullets all day!
    BIG BIRD: (With a bullseye on his head) Yeah, apparently, I'm solely responsible for causing the entire country to fall into a national deficiiiiiiiiiiit... Mitt Romney says I need to be kiiiiiiiiilled.
    GORDON: Well, I am sorry to hear about that, old friend. However, Romney does have a point, if people stopped forking all of their money over to PBS, and started using it to purchase products they see advertised on commercial television, that is sure to reboost our economy, and get our country back on track.
    *Sniper fire; everyone ducks*
    GORDON: Kids, you better run home, and grab your steel pots, we are goin' to war!
    BILLY: Again?
    SALLY: But Gordon, we STILL haven't been able to end the war in the Middle East.
    *More sniper fire*
    GORDON: I am sorry kids, but war is America's only option to show the opposition that we don't intend to take any of this lying down!
    BIG BIRD: Then maybe we should all get up off of our stomachs, and start fighting baaaaaaaack.
    BILLY: But Gordon, haven't you always told us that violence is never the answer to anything?
    GORDON: The circumstances are different now Billy, you are growing up, and you need to learn how to fight like a man.
    SALLY: But what about me? I'm a girl!
    GORDON: You need to hang tight Sally, we may need you on standby, in case the only way to avoid a major crisis, is to let the enemy sleep with one of our under-aged, yet prepubescent girls. Now, everybody up!
    *Everyone rises, and more sniper fire ensues, striking Gordon in the shoulder*
    *Crazy Harry pops in*
    CRAZY HARRY: Did somebody say "BLAST"?
    OTHERS: NO!!!
    GORDON: No old friend, nobody said blast!
    BIG BIRD: Calm down Harry, nobody said "blast".
    *Whistling is heard; Billy looks up*
    BILLY: Uh oh! They just dropped another A-bomb on us!
    *Harry pushes down his plunger, causing everything to explode; he laughs maniacally until the A-bomb drops in on them and blows up everything.
    GROVER: (Voice) Sesame Street has been brought to you today but the laters G, O, and P, and by the letters P,B, and S; fostering cooperation and partnership for the last forty years.

    One of the greatest things about all this is you just KNOW that somewhere Mrs. Romney is FURIOUSLY angry at Hubby yelling at him "You DUMMY! Now even if you haven't blown the election, you've RUINED my chances of being on Sesame Street! What GOOD is it being First Lady if you don't get to go on Sesame Street???!!!!"

    Of course it's probably all the best that Romney and the Bird never actually meet as BB would undoubtedly keep messing up his name as either "Twit" or "Mr Wrongney"

    Not long after when her endorsement first became known I read one quip online that was along the lines of "Finally. Mitt has the support of someone that changes positions more than he does." Brilliant.

    Here's something...

    Rick Sanctorum apparently said something a lot nastier, I can't really remember it but it's like "I wanna kill and eat Big Bird."


    I'm sorry but...
    I can no longer believe that. Republicans want to destroy Sesame Street and just have very hateful policies. \Give me the Wuss-ocrats anyday. At least they're not made of malice.

    I'm voting for Forgetful Jones. :p You know no offense but we can sit here and say either side is trash but lets face it both sides are trash. :grouchy: It personally cracks me up when people say why one side is better then the other when IMO neither is.

    He's more valid a candidate than Ralph Nader or whoever the heck Lyndon LaRouche wants us to vote for.

    Yeah, one's policies are completely hateful and gluttonous... so yeah. They're both the same. I'm sure Al Gore would have gotten us muddled in Iraq as well. It really doesn't matter... until it does.

    I just am so undecided in this election...once again I just ask how do you pick which one when you're not fond of either one and I'm not even talking as people I'm talking policies. Im an independent voter anyways. I just HATE picking sides because in all honesty I see pros and cons on BOTH sides.

    EDIT- I mean I know I've made jokes about this but in all seriousness this is really a tough choice for me personally. Last election was a no brainer for me but this one is just UGH both of them are Pinocchio's to me. XP

    Man this whole Big Bird thing has gotten into epic proportions. The NBC nightly news devoted 3 minutes to the whole thing, and the words Muppets, Sesame Street and Big Bird are huge trending buzzwords.

    WHY do Republicans hate Sesame Street?

    - Sesame Street has made pro military specials that support all the wars the Republicans started

    - Sesame Workshop didnt do a darn thing when they learned the US military and CIA was using Sesame Street songs as part of torture sessions against detainees

    - Sesame Street has worked with the RAND military think tank post 9/11

    Republicans should love Sesame Street. Heck, Laura Bush was even on there!
    I just hope Sesame introduces an obviously gay human character to really set them off (err, and to teach kids of course)
