Million Muppet March
Here is the article!
This post is in response to a blog that Professor Papoulis posted a few days ago about the new Big Bird motif for the Obama campaign. This is an article about a massive protest against Romney’s plan to end public broadcasting in the form a muppet parade. This parade is one example of how this image has caught wild fire in the public sphere. I think the reason why this image has blown up is because it shows weakness in Romney’s campaign. People say that instead of trying to eliminate the important social problems of today like unemployment or war (something along those lines) Romney has decided to target Big Bird- an innocent lovable muppet from the beloved children’s TV show Sesame Street. Low blow? or valid point?
