    But the insight from the Big Bird moment is even more frightening.  Because Mitt demonstrated that he understood that firing Big Bird also meant firing Jim Lehrer.  All of PBS.  You see, Mitt loves PBS; he just wants to take away the funding that makes it possible.  Mitt loves the PUBLIC Broadcast System; he just wants to PRIVATIZE it.  Kind of like Social Security and Medicare....

      outsource it to China...at which point Rmoney will invest in it through his "blind" trust.  After all, the person wearing the Big Bird suit need not be American, and Jim Lehrer, well, he's past or near retirement age, and China has news broadcasters who will do his work for far less salary.


      No one elected Grover Norquist anything. If everyone ignored him, he would dry up and blow away.
