Seat of the Pants Math

The best line I’ve read about Mitt Romney firing Big Bird:

Let’s channel one of Big Bird’s colleagues, Count von Count, and do some math: The federal government gave $445 million this year to the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which distributes that money to PBS and, to a lesser degree, NPR member stations across the country.

That $445 million works out to about 1/100 of 1 percent of the federal budget.

That’s like me saying I’m going to lose weight by trimming my nails.

From the Chicago Sun Times article:  No debate about it: Big Bird is small potatoes when it comes to federal budget  which I stumbled upon on DailyKos.com.

Yup.  Way to go Mitt.  Hollow gestures, lies and gimmicks.

Damn these folks who think pre-school is an important time.
Damn them to hell!
