It was only a matter of time before the Obama administration leapt on Mitt Romney’s apparent grudge with Big Bird and the folks down at Sesame Street.
During last week’s presidential debates, Mitt Romney claimed he would stop the subsidy to PBS.
“I like PBS. I love Big Bird. Actually, I like you, too,” Romney told moderator and host of PBS’s NewsHour, Jim Lehrer. “But I’m not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from China to pay for.”
The Obama campaign responded with this SNL skit masquerading as a political ad coming to the defense of everyone’s eight-foot-tall canary, or whatever the hell he is. “Mitt Romney knows it’s not Wall Street you have to worry about,” the ominous voice over says, “it’s Sesame Street.”
Can you tell us how to get, how to get back to the issues at hand? And for the record, Sesame Street is not a big fan of this ad.
