In Defense of Big Bird


Romney vowed to kill Big Bird.

An uproar on social media.
The remark went viral.
Everyone likes Big Bird.

Big Bird will survive the attack.
Big Bird will go on.

Actually Mitt Romney vowed to cut off government funding for PBS.  That would mean the shut-down of some PBS stations, especially the rural ones.  So, with a little poetic license, Romney vowed to kill Big Bird.
