Elmo Makes Elmo's Case Before Congress

in General Discussion edited January 2014
What has society come to where a muppet has to plead its case to the United States Congress?

    I found this bit to be disturbing:

    Earlier this year, actress and model Christie Brinkley testified about nuclear safety.

    Reminds me of Britney Spears' guide to physics.

    Better asked, what has society come to when a muppet is allowed to plead its case before congress. If this were a joke I would not care, it is nice to see congress having a bit of fun once in a while, but it was totally serious. Better to have Maria or Gordon from Sesame Street, not Elmo. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    Get with the times, man! Muppets are now political activists! After Bert went terrorist, the doors flew open for muppets to change the world around them.

    That says it all, really.

    Given our Congress, why WOULDN'T we expect MUPPETS to testify? After all, Bono and Christie Brinkly testified, and they aren't really qualified, either.

    I wish some of the Lefties out there would wake up and smell the coffee.

    What does this stupidity have to do with liberalism? I'm liberal and I view this in a very similar way as you do.
