Romney's Big Bird Statement Sparks @FiredBigBird Twitter Account
Mitt Romney made one thing abundantly clear during Wednesday night's debate: He likes firing birds, too.
In a discussion on the deficit, the presidential candidate said to host Jim Lehrer, “I’m sorry, Jim, I’m gonna stop the subsidy to PBS…. I like PBS, I love Big Bird -- I actually like, you too -- but I am not going to keep spending money on things [we have] to borrow money from China to pay for.”
Naturally, Twitter responded, and responded with vigor.
