'Million Muppet March' Planned In DC To Protect Federal Funding For PBS [the Muppets are 1%ers!]
Deadline.com ^ | October 12, 2012 | THE DEADLINE TEAM

Mitt Romney’s now infamous pledge to eliminate federal funding for PBS despite his affection for Big Bird and Jim Lehrer is getting still more pushback. Today a Los Angeles animation exec and an Idaho student are planning a 'Million Muppet March' for November 3rd at the National Mall in Washington DC three days before the election. Reuters reports Animax’s Michael Bellavia and student Chris Mecham came up with the idea separately during the October 3rd debate. Bellavia bought the Internet address www.millionmuppetmarch.com and discovered Mecham already had the Facebook page. The two fans of Sesame Street connected before the debate was over and started planning. PBS received $445 million in federal budget outlays in 2012. Mecham comes from rural Idaho and says public broadcasting is important in sparsely populated areas that receive no other signals over the air. The men concede they may fall short of a million people but "it does seem like we might get close to the biggest ever assemblage of puppets in one place and probably the most ever puppets marching on Washington," says Bellavia.

I’m betting the “Million Muppet March” ends up being a couple thousand at most...

You mean Obama’s taking his minions out for a stroll?

Prosecute him! And no bail - he's a flight risk.

It's really another "Make My Day" event. Shows how stupid people are. Does anyone think Big Bird needs funding??

Romney used the perfect example.

Why are we funding a TV station??????????? Can't think of one damn good reason.

The man who runs the Sesame Street programming on PBS gets over $684,000 in pay every year.

He is not the head of PBS—he is just the CEO of Sesame Street!!!!
