A Texas high school is facing intense criticism after a halftime show in which a person dressed like Mitt Romney was punched in the face by someone depicting Big Bird.

This video captured by Texas Sports Center shows a skit by the Central Medical Magnet High School, a Beaumont ISD school, in response to Romney's comments that he would cut PBS funding during the presidential debate. Meanwhile, a student dressed as President Obama can be seen dancing and doing backflips.

What do you think? Should this be allowed at a high school football game? Or is it just "all in good fun"?
