Hundreds of toddlers, families, and other fans of public media marched from Lincoln Park to the Capitol in Washington, D.C. today in the “Million Puppet March,” one of the fluffiest, most adorable political rallies in the whole history of ever.
The march was a response to GOP candidate Mitt Romney’s assertion, in the first presidential debate, that he would cut funding for public television if elected. The goal of the march was to “increase awareness of the importance of federal funding to our public broadcasting system and to promote broad-based support for its continuation,” according to the Million Puppet March website.
The march organizers have also started a petition to Congress urging the government to continue to fund public television and public radio.
