Sounds like they see the writing on the wall and want to try and salvage some funding.

Yes, but Romney and Ryan are staying on point and the idiot has now set himself up as a fool. America isn’t in the mood for these silly moveon type childlike tactics with the way the country’s going. Those days are gone especially this close to the election.

Looks like the Sesame Street execs watched the episode on learning to add — as in, adding up the polls and seeing that Romney is about to win.

From Sen. Jim DeMint via the Wall Street Journal:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703559604576176663789314074.html

“Sesame Street make millions on their own. “Sesame Street,” for example, made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales from 2003-2006. Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 in compensation in 2008. With earnings like that, Big Bird doesn’t need the taxpayers to help him compete against the Nickleodeon cable channel’s Dora the Explorer.”

Thank you for posting that Focault’s Pendulum. I left a civilized comment pointing out that Sesame Street was owned by a one percenter and only contracted with PBC. Told them I was an independent voter in order to get it approved for posting. Doubt they’ll publish it though...
