‘Nonpartisan’ Million Puppet March draws hundreds to Washington


Big Bird-obsessed whiners were shooting for a Million Moocher Meltdown in Washington, D.C., today. The Million Puppet March did have a better turnout than a Sandra Fluke rally, but just barely.

Damn, I missed the Million Puppet March today. Apparently, so did 999,500 puppets. #tcot #millionpuppetmarch

Although both organizers and media reports claimed the event was a “nonpartisan march,” that didn’t stop people from dressing up as Sesame Street’s Ernie and Bert and marching alongside small children carrying signs reading, “Mitt RobMe, Our shows teach acceptance and tolerance. Apparently you missed that lesson! Brought to you by the letters F and U!”

My report from the Million Puppet March airs tomorrow am on #News4Today. &@ United States Capitol Building instagr.am/p/Rlfq2OHAg9/

At least one woman dressed as Romney’s Binder, and several Big Birds were spotted in the wild as well, one carrying a trash can with a Mitt Romney effigy inside. Cookie Monster was spotted also, carrying a placard claiming that the Disney-owned Muppets are the 47 percent.
