Just think how much money PBS raked in from the sale of all those puppets and paraphernalia.

Wow less than 1,000 from liberal Maryland "protesting" and the MSM shows "momentum" for Obama.

Pathetic.

Wednesday morning can't come soon enough with a Romney/Ryan win.

They couldn’t even use the word Muppet because they would have been sued by PBS.

Beyond pathetic...

Nice costumes for a grass roots protest. Liberals are incapable of bipartizen efforts. These muppets dumb down kids, and put them further in debt.

Somebody should ask them if they even know who’s hand is up their ass, making them talk.

Puppet march? Well named, could have been the imbicile march too.

As an aside, yesterday my wife was driving to the supermarket and proceding down a parking lot aisle when this volvo shot between cars across her path into a parking space to her left with some messy looking lefty driving. I immediately said I guarantee that is an obama voter. Sure enough, there was a 08 obama sticker on the car. My wife tried to stifle me but to no avail as I yelled out, you liberal AH. She waddled off to the ATM.

I detest these people and their leader.

"It is truly amazing that everyone seems to have bought the notion that this peripatetic carnival will somehow teach kids to read-despite the fact that the habits of the mind necessary to be a good reader are exactly what Sesame Street does not teach: language, active reflection, persistence, and internal control."

I didn’t think Miss Piggy was on the public dole, the Muppet show was commercial.

Maybe less. Are we sure they weren't counting the muppets as part of the crowd?

does this stupid crap ever end with the left looking stupid.
Seriously do they not ever see how stupid and pathetic they are when they dress up and act like this and then they have their silly signs as if a 5 year old thought of the slogan.

Looks like the only protesters that showed up were part of the Muppets production crew.

you sound like me.
I had a run in this week with a large black woman over her driving a brand new car and then using food stamps and then getting cash back from her EBT card to buy liquor.

These poeple piss me off to no end and I;m sick of them.
They vote based on their color, or their welfare

Doesn't Disney own the Muppets now? I could swear I saw Muppets the last time I went to Disney World.

300k to 500k show up for the Pro Life march or A Tea Party rally & there is no news coverage.
50 show up dressed like cartoon characters & they get covered by the press.
It has been going on for so long I guess we are used to it.

Liberalism is a mental disorder, exhibit #1,359,259,135 (Series V).

Those people are so pathetic that if they yelled into an echo chamber their voices would not return to them out of shame.

The "Million" is wildly off the mark, but the "Muppet March" part is the most accurate headline to come out of the MSM in years.

Brainless sock puppets with someone's hand up their arse working their mouth parts from their exit parts.

got that right and trust me I see it first hand, welfare and color and they;re not even embarrassd being on welfare, hell even their kids at the school are proud to say how they get free breakfast and lunch and of course they’re never explained how others who workl pay for their food and why should they get free breakfast and lunch when they;re on food stamps?
I mean where the hell is the money going on food stamps if they get free food at school?

no we should not get sued to it, it’;s time for our side to call them out, name names and use examples.
he media are the real enemy of this country and freedom, they lie, they deceived and they certainly twist the facts to suit their agenda.

It’;s time for our side to march on their HQ’s , to protest them, to boycott them, mail them call them etc.

What a bunch of losers. Most of them don’t even know that the Muppets are a separate entity from Sesame Street. Miss Piggy on Sesame Street? I don’t think so! And if they’d have just donated the money they spent on the trip to D.C., to their local PBS station, they would have done far more good than dressing up and making fools of themselves.

I wonder how many of them are employed by PBS NPR and other nonprofits

If everyone of these people donated $1000 to PBS every year, that would be about a Million dollars.

I wonder how many did.

Big Bird makes millions of dollars a year and we still pay for it.

He’s feathering his nest with your money.

Think about that while you’re job hunting. :)

I still say we need a million-pitchfork-packin’crowd at the White Hut on Obamuzzie’s last night to make sure the Kenyan doesn’t stay a minute longer than the law allows. Then bring in the steam cleaners and Lysol to get rid of the scum that can’t walk out by itself. It’s a 6,000 mile run for me but I’d be willing to do it and bring a truckload of pitchforks.

Would Disney© be interested in acquiring yet another iconic brand. They’ve done well with Marvel™, and they should do well with LucasFilms™. Think of what they could do with Sesame Street™.
