Skip to comments.Obama’s ‘Long March’ to victory in November spearheaded by Muppets

MSNBCs race-baiting commentator Touré has an amusing pep talk in Sundays Daily News, in which he assures the Democratic faithful that Obama has this one sewn up. The evidence Touré offers in support of his conviction is as thin as his overuse of metaphor is thick (It has been so long since Democrats felt even a scintilla of electoral despair that the slightest taste of it was frightening enough to make them look like [sic] they were in Edvard Munchs The Scream.)
The timing of the column is interesting, coming as it does the morning after Real Clear Politics updated its Electoral College map to reveal that Obamas once impressive lead has shriveled to ten votes, 201 to 191. But dont worry, children, Uncle Touré advises. Unemployment is below 8%, dontcha know (even though a glaring disparity between the number of jobs added and the lowered rate in the September BLS report has some analysts scratching their heads). Plus Joe Bidens whoop-a-thon on Thursday, in which he stopped just this side of dropping his pants, is sure to restore the polls to normalcy. Finally theres this: Months ago, the President successfully framed this as a choice election, not a referendum, and the Republicans never offered a compelling alternative choice.
Compelling arguments like that might be hard to counter, but just to be on the safe side, other Obama supporters have taken to the streets. Reuters reports that a Million Muppet March on D.C. has been planned for Nov. 3, three days before the election.
The idea for the demonstration was independently conceived by Michael Bellavia, 43, an animation executive from Los Angeles, and Chris Mecham, a 46-year-old college student from Idaho, who have since pooled their intellectual resources. Bellavia bought the URL www.millionmuppetmarch.com, which provides instructions on how to make a sock puppet. Interesting, the site also allows comments, the first of which is subversive, noting that Big Bird made enough money last year to put himself in the one percent earnings bracket. So isnt this a Millionaire March?
The Obama campaign itself continues to attempt to score points by invoking the name of Big Bird. Last Thursday, spokeswoman Jen Psaki proclaimed on Air Force One that theres 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. Unluckily for the president, she was referring to him.
Apparently this guy believes his own press releases and has been sniffing too much glue playing with the paper mache....
....I’m talking about Toure...not the author of this article......just to clarify.
Occupy Sesame Street! Big Bird is clearly part of the 1%!
I think we’re missing the point. To me, the key stunner in the article....that one of the co organizers of the march is a “46 year old college student.” To me, that says it all.
Preserve Arrested Development: Elect Obama 2012
If Ryan had lied as often as Biden did in Thursday’s debate, the media would be screaming about the falsehoods yet. I guess to liberals Biden’s act of being a total lying jackass means you’ve won the debate.
Just think if they really got a million and the average person spends just $200 times to get there, that’s 200 million that they could just save and give to Big Bird to feather his nest.
If I were Romney and Obama even mentions Big Bird in the next debate, I’d say, “Well, Big Bird makes $314K/year. Part of the 1% you Democrats hate. Does it sound like to you Big Bird is in it for the public service?”
