Angry Bird: Big Bird Tells Obama to Stop Using Him in Stupid Attack Ad
October 9, 2012 - 9:01 am
I added the “stupid” part, because the ad in question is stupid. But Big Bird isn’t happy to have been drafted into the bumbling Obama campaign. The bird can’t fly, but he can protest.
Sesame Street wants President Obama’s campaign to take down its latest attack ad against Mitt Romney, which features Big Bird.
“Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns,” a Tuesday statement on Sesameworkshop.org reads. “We have approved no campaign ads, and as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.”
Will the President of the United States now surrender to Big Bird? Is that where we are now? Is that where Barack Obama has taken America — to the point where we not only are losing the war on terrorism, POTUS 44 can’t even win a staring contest with a dude in a bird suit?
