The Obama Campaign is desperate.
It seems Big Bird is the newest addition to the liberal candidate’s lineup, joining favorites like Sandra Fluke, Jimmy Carter, and Bill Clinton. What a motley crew. The campaign released an ad on Tuesday, in response to a comment made by Republican nominee Mitt Romney during the debates last week. Romney told debate moderator Jim Lehrer, the executive editor for PBS, “I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS … I like PBS, I love Big Bird, I actually like you, too, but I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for.”
Apparently, it’s the Obama Campaign’s new strategy to distract attention from the debate their candidate so horrifically lost, by instead attempting to change the narrative to a ridiculous story about the political machinations of a giant yellow bird puppet. This campaign is content with throwing every symbol of innocence possible in front of the roaring failuretrain that’s barreling down on them. “Mitt Romney wants to fire Big Bird,” seriously, this campaign is a vat of used food oil. They’re disgusting.
But this ad is just ridiculous. The new logic is, if you don’t spend taxpayer money on something, you hate it and want to watch it burn and go away forever. Makes sense, yeah, totally. And Barack Obama actually payed for and approved this ad.
I especially enjoy the Grover Norquist-esque bird afro silhouette in the window of a corporate office. Nice touch, O.
EDIT: Because of usage violation, and the fact that Sesame Street is, obviously, a non-partisan children’s show, PBS has asked the Obama Campaign to take the ad down. If you see the video above not working, that’s why. How embarrassing and unprofessional.
