Big Bird by Muppet Wiki
I'm probably hysterical and an out of control alarmist, but, Romney and his Republican strategists purposely chose PBS and Big Bird as a stand-in for their tactical need to make reference to Obama's blackness, Homosexual's gayness, Intellectual's eliteness, Women's uppityness, Immigrant's mexicanness, Muslim's otherness and on and on. Combining Big Bird and States Rights in the same discussion is nothing more than throwing red meat to the bigots, racists, misogynists, fundamentalists and homophobes that desperately want and need clarification from their leader in recognizable pejorative terms.
Romney and Robertson by The Erstwhile Conservative
Big Bird is a n***er, b**ch, f*g, s**c, raghead, etc. Romney can't use these terms but he can say "Big Bird".
I know I'm gonna catch flak for this. They started it. Let's finish it.
McCain and Hagee by Gary Kamiya
P.s. It is the only logical reason for Romney to have done this -- checkout the fall-out all over the Internet, his strategists are not stupid. Almost every old time Republican I know likes and watches PBS. I think Lawrence Welk is still in some PBS programming.
