The giant yellow flightless bird is the star of a sarcastic ad put out by the Obama campaign attacking Mitt Romney
The ad even starts with the President's blessing of the bizarre ad. Well you know who doesn't approve that message, Big Bird.
Sesame Workshop the people who own the rights to the Big Bird image are a little miffed that the Obama campaign used their star without permission and besides as Big Bird will tell you, He's not political
This is all because Mitt Romney wants to cut government funding to PBS and mentioned Big Bird at the debate
There was probably a better way to say it but the truth is Big Bird is a billionaire. He's part of the one percent. It is kind of silly that he gets a government handout
And the Sesame Workshop is a multi-billion dollar international company from Tickle me Elmo alone
And really why do we give money to PBS anymore. It was necessary when we had four or five station, But now there are a thousand stations and many do what PBS does.
The federal Government needs to get out of the TV business and stop giving our money to Big Bird
He's doing fine. There are a lot of other Americans who could use help and the Presidential candidates attention
