Now we know why President Obama said Elmo was seen in a white Suburban heading for the border. That raises the question — what did the President know about Elmo being a pedophile and when did he know it?
Just a reminder of a story that we brought you more than a year and a half ago in light of people jumping all over Mitt Romney for his mention of Big Bird during the debate last night. According to IRS 990 tax forms for the years 2003 through 2006, “Sesame Street” reported earnings of more than $211 million from merchandise licensing alone, an average of more than $50 million per year from toys, books, DVDs, stuffed animals, Pampers diapers, and yes, even a large theme park just north of Philadelphia that is run by Busch Gardens. It’s time to get Big Bird off of corporate welfare since, as one headline puts it, he’s richer than Romney.
