    Ouch!!! I guess Big Bird understands that he makes his money off people of all political stripes and doesn't want to be labeled a Democrat. :lol:

    Angry birds on Sesame Street want Obama to take down PBS ad
    Published October 09, 2012
    FoxNews.com

    Big Bird will not be anyone's political puppet.
    Sesame Workshop has asked the Obama campaign to take down a new TV ad that prominently features the famous talking bird, in a satirical spot mocking Mitt Romney for calling for an end to PBS subsidies.
    "Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down," Sesame Workshop said in a statement.
    An Obama campaign official said it has received the request and "will review their concerns."

    I am fairly convinced that a clown show has hijacked the Obama campaign in the past two weeks. Time for people to wake up or lose spectacularly.

    On that note, if Obama doesn't give a shit enough to come out swinging in the next debate, then I don't either.

    I MAY give enough of a shit to show up to the poll and pull the lever for him. But not much more than that.

    Big Bird is LYING! Elmo is a liar too.

    Think about it. Big Bird is complaining because obama is making Big Bird look like a fool.

    I like the Romney response to the Big Bird Ad:

    ( and yes, I would expect Sesame Street to ask for it's removal as well )

    First AARP puts the brakes on obama, now Big Bird. If obama keeps it up, he will be standing around on his own.

    LOL Big Bird is a CAPITALIST. :) Have you been in the toy or baby sections of a department store? As a one percenter, Big Bird knows who REALLY has placed a target on his back. Big Bird is smart enough to know that if you crash the economy, then the royalties dry up.
