    Not very factual, Rat is obviiously from the far right wing.

    Sesame Street is actually in Pennsylvania – a children’s theme park.

    And Rat? well, he MAY be a conservative. I notice he only attacks the weaker.

    Politically, I’d classify Rat as an anarchist. Outside the USA, people would understand what I meant if I called him a libertarian.

    Rat’s first demand: get rid of Elmo!

    I might just be with Rat on this one. Sesame Street used to be a quality educational program that treated its young viewers like intelligent human beings; now it talks down to kids and exists just to sell Elmo merchandise. PBS (the TV station) is a good thing, but let’s not give them any more money until Elmo is evicted from Sesame Street.

    Maybe Rat was thinking Grover Norquist…

    Pastis should occupy Easy Street with his cushy job.

    HAHA! Have you been to any of those circuses? Those clowns repeat the same mantra over and over, then ask you for money (though not necessarily in that order…)

    Watch your back, Rat… I hear that Big Bird doesn’t like it when someone talks to Grover that way…

    I thought the strip was hilarious – but these comments are even funnier! Especially the person with the agenda. It’s a cartoon, get it? I don’t think Steph has a political bias, it’s just funny, folks.

    Rat: the perfect antidote to Sesame Streetist narcissism. Because Rat is the Ultimate Narcissist.

    (Away for a few days, I’ve now caught up on PBS. Loved the Sunday pun, and left a tongue-in-cheek comment there….)

    I had a friend who grew up on Sesame Street (right off of Taragon Way and down from Saffron Street). She wasn’t able to get a library card until she brought a piece of mail with her name and address on it because the library staff thought she was just joking or something when she filled out the forms.

    Well this just shows that Stephen is out of touch. First of all, occupy jokes are kind of a few months old… 2nd, the occupy Sesame Street meme already exists, it was born and died in a matter of 2 weeks. Get with it bro ;P
