Jon Stewart and The Daily Show launched a new show this week to discuss how Big Bird could remake his image to be less liberal.

This is all a continuation of the proliferation of Big Bird images on social media mocking Mitt Romney's plan to cut PBS. The Democratic National Committee got in on it with a web video, followed by one directly from the Obama campaign, which has also sent people dressed like Big Bird to protest Romney rallies.
