Big Bird: Love the Sinner - Hate the Sin

We've all heard by now Mitt Romney's attack on PBS during Wednesday night's presidential debate - specifically calling out everyones favorite giant yellow feathery friend - Big Bird. And while Mitt has been declared the winner by most, he figuratively "flipped the bird" to everyone raised on Public Television. Here is a great roundup of the reactions:

I don't believe that Mittens loves Big Bird anymore than I believe he loves Modern Family. It's too progressive with its free education, support of evolution (we know that Elmo is certainly not God's creation), and gay marriage (Hey Bert! - It's legal in NY now).

And Sesame Street's support for diversity is beyond him. They teach kids SPANISH! Oh the horror. Can't they just self deport already?

And Sesame Street embarrassingly kicks Mitt's ass on foreign policy. He can't take a trip around the world without insulting our allies - Sesame Street is watched in more than 140 countries with 20 co-productions.

Hey Mitt! - Check out some of the international clips after the jump. You may learn something.

Did you grow up with Big Bird? I sure as hell did, and Mr. Romney can go live in a trashcan for all I care.
