The Obama campaign has taken abuse from just about everyone for its silly “Big Bird” ad; among others, PBS protested. So a reporter asked Obama spokesperson Jen Psaki, on board Air Force 1, whether the campaign will take down its Big Bird ad. Psaki replied:
We have received that request [from PBS]. We’re reviewing it. I will say it doesn’t change the fact that there’s only one candidate in this race who is going to continue to fight for Big Bird and Elmo, and he is riding on this plane.
How far Obama has fallen! From the candidate of hope and change to the only candidate in the race who is fighting for Big Bird and Elmo! I suppose his spokesmen would explain that they are middle class Muppets…
