Tourists in downtown Washington, D.C. may have been confused by a small, colorful gathering on the mall on Saturday, as a group of activists came together for the Million Puppet March with a message of government support for PBS. While the Count may have been disappointed the assembled crowd for this million-strong march was a few hundred at most the activists in their cobbled-together homemade costumes did their best.
Big Bird, Grover and the Wild Things took pictures with fans in a sea of Obama/Biden signs and Puppets Unite! posters. For anyone walking to the Smithsonian museums, they could be regaled by an activist dressed as Kermit singing Rainbow Connection as attendants cheered for the rights of their furry friends.
Co-organizers Chris Mecham and Michael Bellavia created their puppet march after the first presidential debate in which Governor Mitt Romney now infamously insisted he loves Big Bird, yet pledged to cut funding to PBS. Offended by the governors comments, the two men met on social media to vent their frustration and make their virtual idea a reality.
Their marchs mission is to increase awareness of the importance of federal funding to our public broadcasting system and to promote broad based support for its continuation, according to millionmuppetmarch.com.
While these marchers celebrated the Muppets, Romney supporters showed up in throngs this weekend to cheer the governor in battleground states Ohio, New Hampshire, Iowa and Colorado. If the Republican is elected this Tuesday, the marchers may find that the federal government isnt always a benevolent puppetmaster.

So tell me why federal funding is important??? /crickets
I was taught that there were six zeros in a million...not two.
At least they realize they are puppets of this Admin, and that is the first step to their recovery into reality. Heh.
Vote for ME!
I'll save you guys!!
another one of these posters needs to be created showing the Staten Island residents after the storm.
Sums up lib mentality in a nutshell. Surprised there weren’t Star Wars characters or drag queens there...
There were not two zeros, more like 20 people with a wide angle shot. This is what the media choses to report over the murder and rape of four Americans..
