When a political campaign gets spooked, the campaign often does foolish things. Attempting to make Big Bird, Big Bird!, an attack vehicle for the Obama campaign has to be the stupidest move I have seen by any campaign this year. Why is it stupid? Let us count the ways:
2. Too silly- The attempt to claim that Romney views Big Bird as a bigger threat than white-collar thieves is too ludicrous for words.
3. Bernie Madoff, Democrat Donor- Starting off with a mug shot of Bernie Madoff was a laugh, since Madoff has given over two hundred thousand to the Democrats since 1991.
4. Big Bird is a Big Issue?- With the country having a real unemployment rate, when discouraged former workers are included, of 14 percent, the Obama campaign is wasting time trying to make Big Bird an issue? Seriously?
5. The Count Responds- The Big Bird ad allowed the Republicans to fire back using the Count.
