Big Bird to Obama:

Mr. President, Leave Me Out Of This

 

 

  ” The Obama campaign can’t seem to catch a break these days.  This is the third time after the Denver debate that the President’s campaign has been scolded by one of their information sources.  For instance, AARP told the Obama campaign not to quote them.  Princeton economist professor Harvey Rosen publicly stated that the President misrepresented his work.  Now, Big Bird wants out of the Obama campaign’s rhetoric, even demanding that one of their ads that featured Big Bird be taken down.  The Wall Street Journal reports on the new ad:

Up went an ad by team Obama called “Big Bird’’ that suggests Mr. Romney is targeting children’s programming rather than legitimate threats to people’s economic interests.

The ad shows images of Bernie Madoff and others implicated in various financial and corporate scandals. A narrator then intones: “And the evil genius who towered over them?”

A silhouette of Big Bird flashes on screen.”

Mark Steyn: Will Big Bird ever leave the government nest?

 

As usual , not to be missed 

  ” That’s what Mitt did in Denver. Ten minutes in, he jumped right on Big Bird, and then he took off – and never looked back, while the other fellow, whose name escapes me, never got out of the gate. It takes a certain panache to clobber not just your opponent but also the moderator. Yet that’s what the killer Mormon did when he declared that he wasn’t going to borrow money from China to pay for Jim Lehrer and Big Bird on PBS. It was a terrific alpha-male moment, not just in that it rattled Lehrer, who seemed too preoccupied contemplating a future reading the hog prices on the WZZZ Farm Report to regain his grip on the usual absurd format, but in the sense that it indicated a man entirely at ease with himself – in contrast to wossname, the listless sourpuss staring at his shoes.”
