don't mess with big bird

The pundits are still endlessly analyzing last night's yawner of a debate, which didn't show either contender at his best. President Obama was on point but too reserved. Romney was full of sound bytes but no real proposals and was just plain rude as he walked all over the format and the moderator. But the real loser of the evening was moderator Jim Lehrer, whose questions were inane ("What do you think about what he just said?") and who was incapable of containing the flow.

It was interesting to note that the only specific thing that Romney said he would do if he was elected is cut PBS funding and Big Bird. How can anyone still be on the fence after a remark like that? No one messes with Big Bird.
