Pixar and The Muppets as conservative icons

I posted a link recently to an article on Facebook recently Pixar’s conservatism, which I found on Andrew Sullivan‘s blog.

Today, the Democracy in America blog on The Economist had a similar piece on the Muppets, claiming that they equally espouse traditional conservative values. The case of The Muppets merits more discussion that given here.

Is suppose in both cases, these are instances of British conservatives trying to find a more respectable face to American conservatism in this time of Tea Party irrationality.
