Big Bird refuses to become a rallying point for a panicked, desperate Obama campaign:
After Americans ridiculed President Obama’s new Sesame Street ad this morning, Sesame Workshop has requested the campaign to take down the ad.
“We do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns,” the organization said in a statement. “We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”
Perhaps the President shouldn’t have spent the past four years looking down his nose at Prairie Dawn, or assuming he had the votes of Log Cabin Republicans Bert and Ernie.
Obama’s bizarre focus on Sesame Street elicited a response from Mitt Romney:
“You have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving Big Bird,” he said. “I actually think we need to have a president who talks about saving the American people and saving good jobs.”
