    then Romney's entire debate prep team should be fired. If Romney had to get specific about something for the frickin' first time in this whole campaign, he could have just said he would lay off Jim Lehrer. Not too many people are going to get worked up about that.

    But Big Bird?  That was incredibly stupid.

      Romney has been hammered for not giving specifics on programs he'd cut, so he gave one his people thought would be OK.  But outside of the Republican echo chamber PBS is very popular.  The "cut funding to PBS" line would not have been nearly as damaging to Romney without the reference to Big Bird.
