OK OK You Got Mitt On One Topic - Here's Your Fact Check

So the latest faux outrage is over BIG BIRD. Poor Mitt, if only he could get his facts straight. OK lefties you got 'em on this statement... (paraphrasing) Mitt said he loves Big Bird but would cut funding to PBS anyway. Well if not knowing that Big Bird isn't already publicly funded is a shonda then pshaw, I just don't know what is. You got him all you proggies.  

 From wikipedia: " The show was initially funded by government and private foundations but has become somewhat self-supporting due to revenues from licensing arrangements, international sales, and other media. By 2006, there were independently produced versions, or "co-productions", of Sesame Street broadcast in twenty countries." and The show's success continued into the 1980s. In 1981, when the federal government withdrew its funding, CTW turned to, and expanded, other revenue sources, including its magazine division, book , product licensing, and foreign broadcast income" 

 It makes me wonder just what other monies he will pull funding from that he can't pull funding from that can invoke more faux outrage from the proggies. I mean really, if this isn't reason enough not to vote for Mitt Romney, well I just don't know what is!

Don't get your panties in a twist, Big Bird is alive and ....is dead! Rock on!
