Either way, I'm sure Sesame Street's future is safe, because there are undoubtedly several networks willing to buy up the series if PBS goes away.
The people at Sesame Street asked the Obama campaign to stop using Big Bird in their ads. I think it's sad that the President of the United States chooses to talk about Big Bird when we've got such serious issues facing us right now here and abroad. Since their ads accusing Romney of murder, being a felon, and failiing to hug his garbage man have all failed, they're using Big Bird now. Sad, sad, sad.
I told y'all we should move Big Bird to the Politics section!
