    The clown car of mishaps coming post-debate from the Obama campaign has just hit its nadir. Not only is the media mocking Team Obama's "absurd" "smallness" with today's Big Bird attack, but just a few moments ago, "Sesame Street" posted a statement demanding Obama take the ad down:

    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.
    Backlash complete.
    Can we talk about the economy now? Gas prices? Four American assassinated by al-Qaeda? The collapse of middle class incomes? The rise in gas prices?
    We'd sure appreciate that.
    Signed,
    America

    Well, well. AARP had something to say about obama referring to them in the debate, as well. I always thought those Sesame Street characters were copyrighted or trademarked and wondered how Team Obama got by using them in ads. But then, who cares about the law, lol?

    Obama probably figured that he bought the rights with the more than $1,000,000 that he gave Sesame Steet in stimulus money to create 1 job.:rolleyes:

    Political ads aren't written for intelligent people. They are "dumbed down", if you will, to get a message across in thirty seconds to a people who care more about celebrities' love lives, Spongebob, and The View. Americans, on the whole, don't like to think. They're stupid. Big Bird plays to that, because stupid people really believe it's an important issue.
