Romney: Bring Me the Head of Big Bird

Mitt Romney the fearless vulture capitalist boldly stated during the first debate that if elected he will take out Big Bird.

I guess it’s reasonable for him to want to counter the macho credentials the Obama administration acquired in the bin Laden raid but I think they’re setting the bar a bit low.

If Obama were to announce US intentions to put a man on the far side of the moon would Romney counter by sending a limo to La Jolla for foie gras?

His target? Federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and its high value figurehead Big Bird.

CPB is hardly a major item in the budget. ($445.2 million for FY 2012)

The elimination of this half billion dollar investment in public broadcasting would reduce the $1.5 trillion federal budget deficit by less than 3 ten-thousandths of one percent, while having a profoundly negative effect on local communities. (more…)

Double Standard? What’s Good For Miss Piggy Is Good For Katy Perry

I’m not a fan of Katy Perry nor do I have anything against her. I’ve never heard her sing or whatever it is that she does. Like everyone else with a television tuned to cable news this week I became immersed in her cleavage, not an entirely unpleasant thought.

The story is that she appeared on Sesame Street and revealed what they said was a bit too much cleavage, and was tossed off the show.

I’m no longer a regular viewer of Sesame Street and haven’t been since my son Kevin was crawling around on the living room floor wearing pajamas with feet on them. (that may or may not still be true.) He’s pushing 40 now so it’s been a while since I’ve been exposed to the Sesame characters or my son’s pajamas.

I do think the Sesame people are guilty of holding to a double standard here and I ran across photographic evidence of the fact this morning at The Nayshun where they dare to ask the question that’s on everyone’s mind in these last desperate days before the midterm elections… Does Katy Perry Show More Cleavage than Miss Piggy?

America you tell me.
