The anti-Mitt Romney demonstration dubbed "The Million Puppet March" descended on Capitol Hill Saturday in support of public broadcasting. President Barack Obama's supporters trashed the GOP candidate using signs branded with mostly Sesame Street-themed one-liners as they made their way through the streets of Washington D.C. dressed as Big Bird, Elmo and even Big Bird holding a trash can with Romney in it.

While you may be glad that you are not there right now, TheBlaze has compiled some of the best photos from the protest/puppet party:
