Exactly what that Sesame Street video showed. A child receiving not just a card but a homemade one with multiple layers of paper and cutouts and ribbon. Geez, makes it seem as if mommy is away at summer camp.
How about a muppet of a child who lost a parent to one of these deadbeats who killed someone in a robbery, a carjacking, just for fun, or whatever.
They should have a young Jewish muppet whose parents were killed by Palestinian suicide bombers on a bus in Jerusalem. Then they'd be keeping it real.
If they insist on "keeping it real", it should also be a dad that was never around before the incarceration and contributed nothing financially to the childs upbringing while the state paid the mother welfare.....with our taxes.
But I'm quite sure he will be some noble, societally wronged victim of the man, looming large in the childs life through the exchange of countless thoughtful letters and photos we will watch the muppet read with wistful fake plastic eyes.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
I stopped exposing my kids to that socialist, hand-wringing puke when I saw the FUgees sing "R" is for riot on one episode.
R stands for something else, if I can help it, dammit.
Not your best work by a long shot. Rant was weak, passion passable, believability moderate. You are slipping in the ranking department, precipitously.
