Wait … we thought the whole point of the 2012 presidential election was to preserve Big Bird’s job security. So why is MSNBC trying to muscle in on “Sesame Street’s” turf and use children to push a social agenda? Word is that this segment of “Political Playground,” during which co-host Krystal Ball talks politics with her 5-year-old daughter Ella, aired on yesterday’s installment of “The Cycle.” No, we weren’t watching either, and now we’re sorry we did.
