Sesame Street Goes Libertarian

I’ve always wondered if there was a libertarian streak over on Sesame Street. Big Bird, Bert and Ernie have always seemed a little gay to me and the Cookie Monster is obviously opposed to the War on Junk Food. Kermit maintains a politically incorrect cross-species relationship with Miss Piggy — without the benefit of a government license, I’ll add.

However, Snuffleupagus always sounded too close to Stephanopoulos so I dropped my little fantasy — until today. I learned the radical revolutionary spirit of our forefathers is alive and well on Sesame Street. Move over “V For Vendetta,” now there’s “C For Cookie”.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

  1. Except the Cookie monster has become the “Veggie Monster” — because cookies are only a ‘sometimes’ treat.

  2. You are sick in the head and need to see a psychologist.

    Ofcourse you probably need to get laid too!

  3. Cookie Monster is still called Cookie Monster. They’ve just created two new segments from their “Healthy Habits for Life” campaign, nothing more.

    However, Cookie has had segments featuring vegetables since the early 1980s, it’s nothing new.

    Plus, he has a daily segment called “Letter of the Day”, where he introduces the Letter of the Day, painted with icing on a cookie, unsuccessfully tries to control himself, and ends up eating it. That’s right Cookie eats at least one cookie per episode.
