Muppets against Mitt

After last night's Presidential Debate started a feud between Republican candidate Mitt Romney and PBS, an anonymous Tweeter took on the role of an angry Big Bird, to the great mirth of those second-screening the TV coverage.

Today, the Pro-Obama Super PAC American Bridge 21st Century released a number of (obviously non-licensed) captioned image "ads" to highlight the views of the candidate who wants to cut funding for public broadcasting.

Fun stuff, but ABC News points out that Sesame Street is relatively safe from PBS cuts because it receives “very, very little funding” from the network. However, it notes, "fans of other PBS programs such as Frontline and Antiques Roadshow may not be so lucky."
