I solemnly promise to never speak ill
Only 996,000 SPOTS TO GO!
And now, the best summary I could find on the “Big Bird” brouhaha — from Kenosha Marge’s blog: >
Politico, NBC, ABC, MSNBC Criticize Team Obama’s ‘Absurd’ Big Bird Ad
At the same time Team Obama released a childish ad hitting Mitt Romney for daring to consider removing multimillionaire, one-percenter Big Bird from the federal government welfare rolls, the Romney campaign released a devastating graphic that shows that, since his debate debacle, Barack Obama has mentioned Big Bird and Elmo 13 times but has not mentioned Libya or his plan to fix the economy even once.
A media that is obviously disappointed with Their Precious One’s debate performance and recent collapse in the polls is not at all happy with this silly and stupid Big Bird attack. Politico criticized the ad as small ball, NBC News described it as “absurd,” and ABC’s Rick Klein seems confused by the desperate smallness of it:
Team Obama makes a play using … Big Bird? The new Obama campaign ad uses a mock-serious tone to jump on Mitt Romney’s most famous debate line. It’s all in good fun, but the contrast may not be what President Obama is after, not now, not in this race. Romney is getting more serious by the day, with a foreign-policy speech and now Paul Ryan about to make the case for conservative fiscal policies. Romney marches toward Benghazi, while the president marches down Sesame Street?

TONIGHT’s the night … I will post an open thread. And drinks are on the house!

Besides,leaving the march until November 3r means that no early voters will be influenced and, quite honestly, who is going to vote for or against a presidential candidate because of Big Bird.. Aren’t these more likely concerns — Libya, jobs, the economy, our foreign trade deals, and on and on. Yowza.
