8-Year-Old Big Bird Fan To Mitt Romney: 'You Find Something Else To Cut Off!'



Eight-year-old Alabama resident Cecelia Crawford wasn't happy during the debate on Wednesday night when Mitt Romney said he would stop government funding for PBS.

On Thursday morning, she was still angry, so she wrote Romney a letter, sent along to The Huffington Post by her mother. Crawford wrote that she is a fan of "Sesame Street" and that it was her "favorite show on earth" when she was younger.

"When I grow up I'm going to get married and I want my kids to watch it so do not cut it off," Crawford wrote. "You find something else to cut off!"

-snip-

Crawford's mother mailed the letter on Thursday to Romney's campaign headquarters.

Read Crawford's full letter to Romney:

22. You have a very dirty mind....

 

Unfortunately he has already pro-created to overpopulate the planet with numbskulled Mormon children (sorry to the Mormons out there).

But the thought of him....oh....never mind...I need to go stir my breadpudding....

5. The beginnings of a Southern backlash? Maybe Romney DID lose the debate.

It seems the line that has stuck more than any is that Romney wants to kill Big Bird. I think Gore defeated Bush in the first debate, but people started to ridicule him for the lockbox idea. Romney handily defeated Obama on style, but a week from now, it seems all we will remember is that Romney thinks killing Big Bird will fix the deficit.

24. Somebody needs to do a photoshop...

of Romney as an ancient Aztec Priest, with Big Bird on the Altar, with a caption underneath saying something like "The sacrifice of this Innocent Creature will satiate the appetite of the Great Rage-God, Norquist, for another whole YEAR."--or something to that effect. I'd do it, but but I've not the time or talent for it lol.

Mitt just wants vested interests in all media outlets.

10. Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen

Once the blood cooled, the sticking points are: Mitt lied shamelessly and wants to kill Big Bird.

23. What address did her mother send that letter to?

I have a five-year old nephew. He's more into the superheroes like Batman and Spiderman than Sesame Street, but I think that it would be hilarious for kids to start a letter-writing campaign to Mitty.

besides Big Bird, is pretty much "shriveled up old bird".

31. Wing nuts stockpile guns & ammo, we're stockpiling box sets of Sesame St. DVDs & books

...for our 1 year old baby girl.

What if he does get in and starts going all Farenheit 451 on our asses?

Time to check out what bulk purchase deals Amazon et al have got going on, as well....
