A Big Bird round-up
For fun, or not
Big Bird costumes are hot sellers for Halloween this year. It happened you-know-when.
Not every comic can top that.
But then it’s not all comedy.
Not all history is in the past, either.
This might be a good time to remember that the Party of Romney, while dwindling, is the party that has shown itself unabashedly willing to use fiscal cliffs for blackmail.
It’s the same party that has worked for decades to cast doubt on any publicly funded program that could in any way benefit children.
This is the same candidate who has expressed support for shedding blood around the globe–except when the shedding was done in a measured, limited way, to take out the main coordinator behind the attacks of September 11, 2001.
This is the same candidate who has repeatedly expressed willingness to cut education funding, with a sop to ‘choice’ in vouchers for poor families.
He is also the candidate whose corporate turnarounds succeeded more for a comparatively small group of investors than for employees in companies his firm bought in fire sales.
Note: There is probably some spinner out there right now, attempting to reassure the public that Mitt Romney didn’t mean it about firing Big Bird. To do the man justice, I believe he was sincere.
