In the first night of presidential debates, Governor Mitt Romney made it clear that he has no heart for PBS. In Romney’s America, puppets that can enlighten a child’s imagination and bring them joy, intelligence and a connection have no room for funding. In truth, Mitt Romney would love nothing more than to oversee the death of Big Bird.
In fixing America’s economy, is it really necessary to gut PBS and make the long-loved channel a corporate mouthpiece?
According to Mitt Romney, he would gut Big Bird and also fire Leher, the Silent Cal impersonator who was supposed to moderate the debate.
When you talk about gutting a channel devoted to the fine arts, children’s entertainment and is a staple part of iconic America, you’re pretty much a souless wonder.
