This is pretty sad.
After digging through all of the footage from the debate last week the Obama Campaign decided that the best line of attack was…
UPDATE: Sesame Street tells Obama Camp to take down the Big Bird ad.
Hat Tip Mara
This ad is hilarious and actually comes across as a Romney ad (in a parody sort of way). It makes it look like Romney will take on ALL those other problems with Big Bird along for the ride. If this is all they’ve got after the news coming out about security requests at our embassy, illegal foreign campaign contributions and 16 trillion dollar debt (and Romney’s awesome foreign policy speech yesterday punctuated by the military poll results favoring Romney 2:1) then I’d say we’ve got them poleaxed.
“…from from the debate” ?
How come they left out Jon Corzine’s name…?
At least George W Bush didn’t beg My Pet Goat to stand up for him after he got his ass kicked.
Obama: Lamest President Ever
Is it true that Sesame Street is worth $614 million dollars?
If so, why are we giving them a handout?
Big Bird got that way feeding and double-dipping at the public trough for a long time:
Ridicule is all they have.
I would actually donate to Obama IF they would specifically use my donation to run this ad. This is as about as childish as it gets.
When PBS was first subsidized it was at a time when there was only over the air TV and the survival of “educational TV” could probably have not survived. In today’s time there are several networks on cable that are dedicated to a young audience.
With the advent of digital TV side channels have allowed PBS to broadcast channels that show children programs while simultaneously showing programs geared to adult audiences.
Sesame Street is a financial juggernaut.
If anyone has seen PBS lately you will see a change. The sponsors, which in the past were mentioned as a sponsor now are allowed to also give a description of the business that seems to be a commercial to me.
So PBS, here is your course to get off the government teet. Use the money you make off of Sesame Street merchandising to produce Sesame Street. Sell commercial time slots on PBS just all the other networks do.
From Obama’s fake biography
” Lolo shrugged and looked down at me. “The boy should know where his dinner is coming from. What do you think, Barry?” I looked at my mother, then turned back to face the man holding the chicken. Lolo nodded again, and I watched the man set the bird down, pinning it gently under one knee and pulling its neck out across a narrow gutter. For a moment the bird struggled, beating his wings hard against the ground, a few feathers dancing up with the wind. Then it grew completely still. The man pulled the blade across the bird’s neck in a single smooth motion. Blood shot out in a long, crimson ribbon. The man stood up, holding the bird far away from his body, and suddenly tossed it high into the air. It landed with a thud, then struggled to its feet, its head lolling grotesquely against its side, its legs pumping wildly in a wide, wobbly circle. I watched as the circle grew smaller, the blood trickling down to a gurgle, until finally the bird collapsed, lifeless on the grass.”
Voodoo Santaria cult chicken sacrifices run in Obama’s family….He is making a sacrificial offering of Big Bird to win re-election.
Seems like a man child needs more time to spend with his family play with dolls. Let’s oblige him this November.

And they have the gall to attack Romney over proposing to cut the funding for Big Bird?
Let’s focus like a laser on Big Bird. Everything else is a distraction.
Tom touched on it somewhat – I think this ad might be a terrible mistake out of desperation. Maybe.
The best R & R response? “Americans, ARE you children — all of you? You KNOW what’s out there, what looms down the road (if not, Mr. Ryan will be glad to spell it out for you mathematically). You SEE the rapids….. ARE you children? Did your forefathers die by the thousands at Valley Forge, Gettysburg, Belleau Wood, Normandy, Chosin, Khe Sahn, Fallujah…. for your right to live Sesame Street from cradle to grave? Is THAT who you are? Really?
If so, well you know who to vote for now, don’t you. But if you are free MEN, and free WOMEN…… ADULTS….. if you think maybe these are serious times requiring serious leadership….. we offer you that. Vote accordingly.
And maybe a plurality of us will choose Sesame Street at age 45. Maybe.
But you know what? The possibility that we may not is a hill worth dying on.
Bu . . bu . . . bu . . .but . . . the nation SO NEEDS a president who has the backbone to stand up for Big Bird and make Big Bird a priority for his administration.
Zippy is a birdbrain!
