Ugh, the whole sesame street thing is such a non-issue. Its shameful that journalists latch on to such tripe.


NPR, PBS, and seasame street do just fine with listener donations and other non-profit funding
Even if they didn't, what taxpayers spend ends up being like 0.01% of our federal deficit. It's like having 50k/yr in increasing credit card debt and making an issue out of stopping your 50 cents/week chewing gum habit
(I hope) Romney was just using sesame street as a metaphor for things in general the government shouldn't spend money, but he probably should have picked a issue that actually carries a price-tag. Like... I don't know... foreign aid to China.
Romney needs to stop saying "I like...X" it sounds very unauthentic. But he doesn't really want to kill Big Bird, just like he didn't really want Detroit auto-manufacturers to be liquidated.
