The desperate Left is still clinging bitterly to the “Romney wants to kill Big Bird” meme. Not only did Team Obama feature Big Bird in an attack ad, but the “adults in the room” are planning a super serious Million Muppet March in November.

But Obama staffers aren’t just swelling with pride over this miserable failure of an attack. They’re making sure everyone knows that “one-woman attack squad” Stephanie Cutter was the genius mastermind behind the Big Bird attack. She’s a supahstah!

Heckuva job, Stephanie! And well done, New York Times! You broke the story of Cutter’s desperate, panicky Big Bird tweet that Twitchy featured on October 5.

Additional kudos to the New York Times for the lengthy Cutter profile that fails to mention her appalling promotion of the campaign’s spin that Benghazigate is only an issue because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. And naturally, there’s not a word about Cutter accusing the GOP of manufacturing “faux outrage” over the four Americans murdered in Libya.

But there was plenty of room to swoon over Stef’s “gritty perseverance” and “dry sense of humor and sharp edge.” Lapdoggery at its finest.

And that’s not the only brilliant feat the heroic deputy campaign manager has accomplished.

The Fishwrap of Record also took precious puff-piece real estate to sneer at Twitchy founder/CEO Michelle Malkin’s criticism of Stephanocchio.

As Ms. Cutter’s role in the campaign has become more prominent, she has become a lightning rod of controversy to detractors and a skirt-suited folk hero to supporters.

Both the adoration (“Stephanie Cutter is SOOO hot,” said one online commenter) and the attacks (“Lying liar Stephanie Cutter has hissy fit,” the conservative blogger Michelle Malkin recently tweeted) directed at Ms. Cutter are often manifest in ways that a male aide, like Mr. Axelrod or Robert Gibbs, would probably never experience.

Because War on Wimmenz! Or something.

Malkin’s criticism has to do with Cutter’s womanhood? Sure thing. Nothing at all to do with Stephanocchio’s well-documented record of being a morally bankrupt lying liar who lies. And we would never direct similar criticism at men like Axelrod or Gibbs. Because no lady parts, natch.

    Stephanie Cutter reminds me of the pretty girl in high school who smiled too wide and tried to get every guy to focus on her. You know, the one everyone found revolting and brown-nosing.

      Good description! She is so juvenile.

    • idalily

      Stephanie, like most liberal women, has the maturity and intellectual depth of a pre-teen girl.

      • Johnny Banco

        Change that “most” to “all”, and “pre-teen” to “junior-high level at best”, and I’ll be in 100% agreement with you! :)

    Stephanie Cutter is the biggest, nastiess, dowright angry liberal ever see. If Axey thinks she is doing the campaign justice? He knows so little about people. Sorry to say this crumb Stephanoccio is from my home state and imagine a Grad of Georgetown? She was a mis-fit is what I was told by a few of my Georgetown Grads friends. Trust me I know many people who are donators, who have buildings named after them, Scholarship funds etc. Upset over how she does not represent the character of Georgetown.
    Maybe Smith is different, that is a don’t ask, don’t tell school! Out in the Berkshires with she was. Misogynistic fool who will never make it on life at 43 yrs old…

    The only reason Big Bird has become a political issue is because Stephanie Cutter has the emotional intellect of a child.

      FIFY.

      • grais

        I stand corrected.

    If I thought these people truly had any brains, I would think they were purposely setting her up for “the big fall” so they would have an excuse to get rid of her for good.

    Sadly, I think they’re on the level, and really think this is a good idea.

    BTW, have they thought about what it will be like when all the libbie moms bring their little kids to the big event to “support Big Bird” and find themselves surrounded by signs saying “F*** Romney” – oh my!

    Don’t laugh, this Big Bird thing is playing really well for Obama’s under-10 demo. In fact Biden says the under-10’s are going to vote 95 to 5 in favor of Obama.

    Does the article mention that Sesame Workshop asked the Obama campaign to stop with the ad/Big Bird meme because they are non-partisan & want to stay out of it and Team Obama gave *them* the bird?

  • disappearing moderate

    No mention of shark eyed Stef’s tall tales of her cancer attack ad connection, Israeli ambassador fabrications or laying consulate attack “problem” at feet of Romney/Ryan. They do give her props for the Big Bird frenzy. Ever wonder if she’s a double secret agent for the RNC?

    Does Steffi really believe that flapping her gums and working her maw will actually draw votes towards Obama?

    Awwww… Godzilla would easily kick Big Bird’s and Stephanie Cutter’s ass!
    Heck! Even Reptilicus or The Giant Claw wouldn’t work up a sweat.

  • ZoriahShepard

    Someone should tell Stef that taking credit for that ad is NOT a good thing.

  • Sharon Schlund

    Big bird is in the 1%….so why should taxpayers foot the bill…people wake up….When has borrowing money we don’t have to pay for something we don’t need a good plan!

    I think academia would be well served using video footage of #SteffinfectionCutter and #DebbieWasAManShultz, as teaching tools to display signs of someone lying…through there teeth, i.e. looking away, stuttering, fidgeting, incoherent sentences, crazy eyes, perspiration, white spittle at the corners of mouth, etc., etc.

      She jitters like a newbie and it’s too embarrassing to watch. I don’t know anyone, Dem or Rep, who takes her seriously.

    The NY Times after debunking Mourning Joe have slipped back into Business As Usual. If it wasn’t for the crosswords and people who fish what use would there be for the NY Times? Cutter, will be so unemployed and not hired anywhere in January when they empty the White House of it’s current squatters.

    What is disgusting other than this lunatic Stephanie (no morals) Cutter, is the administration telling lie after lie after lie to try and place the blame on someone else. And that include this dimwitted Cutter piece of crap.Obama is asleep and goes off fund raising the next day… Someone needs to take a stand and I am glad Mitt did!

  • Douglas Moose

    Any politician who mentions “Romney (or the Republican Party) wants to kill Big Bird” is not serious enough to solve this country’s real problems and does not deserve your vote!

    I would not be surprised if the Dems tried slipping voter registrations into kids’ subscriptions of Highlights.

    liberals are living proof that the truth is stranger than fiction. if someone was to write a book about a presidential candidate using a huge puppet to deflect from a terrorist attack, and label that book “based on actual events”, i would never have believed it

    This site illustrates everything wrong with the country – its is now more important to create a fallacious narrative and hyperbole then to use analytics than to report the news – even attempt to report it with some integrity.

  • Kev_H

    Was watching TV tonight in swing VA and mostly political ads were running. In between serious, powerful Romney ads pops up the stupid Big Bird ad. Right after the Obama set record deficits and ran up more debt than all presidents, we get sophomoric clowning that would make Joe Biden proud. That can only be hurting the case for Obama.
