Posted on 10/09/2012 9:11:20 AM PDT by Perdogg
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.
Big Bird effed Obama!
Har har. Dream on. Those 16,000 new jack booted thugs they are hiring are needed for the poor middle class people that can't afford health insurance thanks to ObamaCare destroying the private market.
Of course we can't blame Sesame Workshop for the ad. But keep in mind that PBS has been a thinly disguised propaganda arm of the Democrat Party for a long time.
And, I'm betting they are "doing the right thing" because it is politically expedient and want to avoid a PR disaster. I wouldn't give them too many kudos for be morally upright.
So has there been ANY campaign commercial for Obama that didn’t receive a cease-and-desist letter from someone/something portrayed in it?
GREAAT GREAT POSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Big Bird Backs Mitt Romney (satired)
LO FREAKIN loud ...LMAO
PBS about as Non Partisan as the Non partisan budget office, or the Non partisan Labor dept etc, or as non partisan as the AARP (see Art Linkletter/hero) About as Non partisan as yours truly
That word is already circulating on Facebook, and probably other sites as well.
And check out the video in #16, cracked me up!
Thanks barmag25 for the link.
So Obama has managed to tick off even Big Bird!
From 2008 -
‘Soul Man’ Sam Moore tells Obama to stop using his song
Ah good point!
You had best watch your tail feathers, Bird.
Why is Big Bird on that line? What happened to his hundreds of millions in merchandise sales?
After the great success of the “Tickle Me Elmo” doll I hear they’re coming out with a “Stay Away Obama” doll...
Downticket Dem candidates are snatching them up.
I don't want $4 dollar gasoline every time I fill my car.
I don't want government run health care and a health board of bureaucrats ruling on my treatments...........is Sebelius slimy or what?
I don't want my president running trillion dollar deficits so my children are bankrupt.
I don't want my president blaming a terrorist attack on an amateur film maker.
I don't want a president who apologizes for my beloved country.
I don't want a president who can't answer simple questions during a debate.
I don't want a president who attacks the producers and achievers of our nation.
I don't want a president who thinks that I who works 14 hours a day didn't "build " his business.
I don't want to be told what to feed my children by a woman with a protuberant backside (i am being kind here )
I don't want to pay for more of BO's bad business "picks" like Solyndra or the Volt.
Obama..........please get out now!!!!
Downticket Dem candidates are snatching them up."
I thought it was the "Bow-to-the-Arab Obama" doll!
From Sen. Jim DeMint via the Wall Street Journal:
“Sesame Street make millions on their own. “Sesame Street,” for example, made more than $211 million from toy and consumer product sales from 2003-2006. Sesame Workshop President and CEO Gary Knell received $956,513 in compensation in 2008. With earnings like that, Big Bird doesn’t need the taxpayers to help him compete against the Nickleodeon cable channel’s Dora the Explorer.”
Anybody else would have been sued into the poor house for using BB in an ad without permission.
