He continued: 'You then have @elmo aggressively advocate for vaccinating children UNDER 5,' saying they cite 'ZERO scientific evidence'

There is no scientific evidence on the efficacy of vaccines on puppets, you got one right Ted.

How much scientific evidence does he expect from a puppet on a children's show?

...he does know it's a puppet, right?

On the same day it was revealed the Trump WH quashed CDC reports of COVID harming kids and evidence showing Trump tried to violently overthrow the government is a bold day to pick a fight with a muppet

Im pretty sure they got vaccinated pretty early, and I have seen zero puppets listed in the covid mortality lists

That's pretty classy, Ted. Going after a 3 year-old, like that. It's very much on brand for Red Hats to be interested in children....

Elmo would kick his ass in a fair election. He has better policy and wouldn't flee to Cancun.

WTF is with Right Wing nutjobs and TV/movie characters?  Do they think everything on TV and in
movies is real? They have long history of lashing out at specific characters as if they are real people.
These idiots people come out in the media and Karen all over fictional persona, lecturing and attempting
to shame them for things that never actually happened..There seems to be a complete lack of
ability to distinguish between fiction and reality...I guess religion is partly what does that to them..
They filter that separates magical world/fantasy from real world has been totally removed.

Well, they are the party that consistently elects that person from TV or from the movies to office all while hyperventilating about liberal Hollywood.

You make Elmo a news anchor for one solitary prime-time spot on Fox News and Ted Cruz would build a shrine for it in his bathroom and herby declare that Elmo is a reincarnated Thomas Rice.

/That's how stupid Ted Cruz is.

Scientific evidence that vaccines are effective for children under 5? Scientific evidence that vaccines work? Scientific evidence that COVID-19 is a real disease?

I hate these people so much.

If we could get flat-earthers to make a few more youtube videos while clutching AR-15's, we could have most of the congressional GOP calling the moon landings fake and mocking physics.

You gotta be a real piece of spiraly shiat to not want kids vaccinated against a deadly disease. But we are talking about Rafael "The poop emoji is my spirit animal" Cruz here.

And a lot of other right wingers. They're going to force birth a ton of poverty babies and tell them not to get vaccinated. Right wingers: evil shiatty people who do everything possible to maximize suffering in the world.

Muppets are not puppets.

No really. I am a child of the 80s. It was a Thing in the 80s. Muppets are not puppets. For some reason Americans have forgotten? Here in Canada we still don't call Muppets puppets. The major difference is that when actors (like Mr Rogers) interact with puppets, they make it clear they are in some kind of "make believe" state of suspended disbelief. But the same actors with Muppets treat the Muppets as actors, and Muppeteers are considered actors in ways that puppeteers are not.

If people couldn't tell the difference, they would have a very hard time telling all kinds of necesary cue about how people pay attention, emote, have conversations, etc. The Muppets really interact with humans differently than puppets do.

Ted Cruz does not interact with anything appraoching the life of a Muppet. He's less emotional than a hand up a sock. He's what you get if you can't tell the difference.

Of course.

He's lashing out because his Yukon upbringing didn't offer Sesame Street and Big Bird, so he had to occupy himself with the soorry imitation of Gord the Socialist Beaver.

I used to agree, given the examples of Reagan and TFG, that actors, comedians, or other performers could never be an effective chief executive of a modern nation.

Then 2/22/22 happened.

You want to explain why you watch innocent little kids playing with dolls in your spare time, Mr. Cruz?

jst3p: Until you advocate banning children being brought to church you don't get to say shiat about indoctrinating children.


That's exactly what amazes me. They think everyone is out to indoctrinate the children - by exposing them to diverse viewpoints? They're doing all the indoctrinating, limiting the curriculum to Christianity, capitalism, and American exceptionalism. And I think that, at least among the voters, they honestly don't see it. They just think they're "normal," and anything outside their little parochial world is deviant.

Please. There's a big difference between an actor and a celebrity cameo. Reagan at least had enough respect for his craft to never upstage Bonzo.

Fun fact: Elmo isn't just a cute furry red preschooler Muppet monster. His soul is a reincarnation of a dinosaur baby who was hatched just a couple years before the end of the Jurassic, and died horribly in his own toddler years with the rest of his kind even though the asteroid had recently been deflected by his dad who had super-powers at the time, only to have the world ecosystem destroyed through the corporate greed of his dad's employer.
