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.
