Yesterday in Washington, DC, hundreds marched to draw attention to one of America’s most pressing issues heading into an important presidential election. This is something that will have an enormous impact on the future of our children and grandchildren and could determine our very survival as a nation. I’m referring of course to 12 to 15 percent of PBS’s budget.

From Newser:

It wasn’t nearly a million by the Count’s best standards, but hundreds gamely rallied in support of Big Bird and public funding for PBS in Washington, DC, yesterday with chants of “El-mo, we won’t go!” reports CNN. Many a Kermit, Cookie Monster, and other puppets joined the so-called Million Puppet March to the Reflecting Pool, taking aim at Mitt Romney’s threat to take Big Bird off the public dole. “We’re just making it clear that public media matters and it’s something that we want to see supported and we still want to see federal funding of,” a co-organizer of the march tells the AFP.

The video below may raise two questions from the anti-Mitts and the anti-Os respectively: “Is this march enough to tilt the election toward Obama?” And “Is psychotherapy covered under Obamacare?” You be the judge. Video brought to you by the letter “O” and the number 16 trillion:

Update:

Nick Gillespie at Reason: “Million Puppet March” on DC Misses Historic Head Count by Just 999,500!

Though I doubt the Sesame Street people will use this particular occasion to teach kids about math.
