During last night’s debate, Presidential hopeful Mitt “I love firing people” Romney fired debate moderator Jim Lehrer “Sorry, Jim…”, and Big Bird: “I love Big Bird…but…” The Twittersphere went crazy – 17,000 tweets per minute mentioning Big Bird!
Someone started an account called @FiredBigBird, which USA Today reported had almost 10,000 followers by 10pm.
Marketplace asked, where does Big Bird fall on the economic scale: is he a 1%-er? 99%? Part of the 47%?
Their research revealed Big Bird’s origins: he’s a six-year-old foster child/bird. Nice, Mitt.
On another note: under the bright lights of a televised debate, why are Romney’s pupils dilated? (See above photo.)
