Big Bird is richer than Romney

Big Bird's annual income is four times Mitt Romney's. But Big Bird still demands to be on the government dole.

CPB receives $450 million per year; of that $280 goes to PBS and local stations. Big Bird's enterprise would be a profitable business on its own.

According to Senator Jim DeMint:

Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 -- nearly a million dollars -- in compensation in 2008. And, from 2003 to 2006, "Sesame Street" made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales.

$211 million over four years is an average of $53 million per year. Mitt Romney is a picker compared to uber-rich Big Bird.

Push it, Obama. Protect Big Bird's hand out! It's a winner.
