#2 You know Rambler, I can see him doing that since PBS gets 12% of its budget from the Feds.

They didn't build Big Bird.

#3 Sesame street makes a fortune on marketing. They don't want to jeapordize 50% of their sales because they've become a political football over government funding they don't actually need.

Also the head of Sesame street probably doesn't wand his huge salary discussed in this context.

#5 From Instapundit about the Big Bird commercial:

And another reader emails: “Today’s Obama for President commercial was brought to you by the number ’1.1 trillion’ and the word ‘deficit’.

#10 Becuz God-n-Chicken-Soup trusting US Moms trust Big Bird + Cookie Monster.

Now, now, #5, a "deficit" in good PolSpeak is just inverse or reverse REVENUE, i.e. REVENUE MOVING IN A NEGATIVE OR NON-TRADITIONAL YET PROACTIVE DIRECTION.
