"The message is clear, I can’t even sit my kids in front of “Sesame Street” without having to worry about the Left attempting to undermine my authority," he said. "And don’t tell me, 'If you don’t like it change the channel.' There are no channels left! It’s everywhere."

Well, maybe it's not that bad. Perhaps "Stage Right" just needed to blow off some steam. Because at the end of his missive, Mr. Right changes his tune.

Sesame Street? Meh.

"Sesame Street can awkwardly slam FoxNews from the comfort of their stodgy old PBS studios," he writes. "Meanwhile, we have the cool kids on our side: Dennis Miller, Greg Gutfeld, Andrew Breitbart and yes, even Glenn Beck. And our cool kids are pointing out just how boring, lame, predictable and lazy the other side has become."

"We no longer NEED their approval. We see them for what they are: bitter, pompous and desperate," he adds.

A tempest in a teapot, it appears. But Right's rant was something that the left side of the blogosphere took great enjoyment in lampooning.

All that we could come up with is that he's kind of a cross between Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann. His personality is more like O'Reilly. Yet he's green. So that would make him Olbermann-like.

As for his appearance, Wolf Blitzer probably comes the closest. Not that Blitzer looks like he lives in a garbage can or anything but there aren't many TV commentators with facial hair.


Hey, we don't care if you're green and live in a garbage can. We'll never accuse you of communism. So follow us on Twitter!
