Funny Mitt Romney should single out PBS and Big Bird. It seems that Sesame Street employees don’t give a hoot about him:
Open Secrets: Adults have flocked to defend beloved Muppet Big Bird since Tuesday night, when Mitt Romney threatened to cut PBS funding during the first presidential debate. Several Twitter accounts gave voice to the concerns of the jobless Elmo, Big Bird and Grover while Mitt Romney seemed to effectively lose the Sesame Street electorate.
But he never had them anyway. Sesame Street Workshop employees have given $7,250 to the President, according to OpenSecrets research, and zilch to Romney–exactly the amount he would be giving to them.
