Yesterday Sesame Workshop asked the Obama campaign to take down its pitiful and desperate attack ad featuring an unapproved use of Big Bird. After the absurd and widely mocked ad backfired, it would have been an easy out for the campaign to give in to Sesame’s request.
But no. Apparently Team Obama still thinks the ad is the best thing ever. Robert Gibbs told “The Today Show” the campaign thugs have no plans to pull the ad.

Back off, Muppeteers. The bird is coming with us, says Gibbs.
When will the Democrats’ War on Big Bird end?
Robert Gibbs is a complete tool. Defending the laughable Big Bird ad, saying no plans to change ad… "we knew it would be a close race."

Maybe the campaign just didn’t like conservatives’ helpful suggestions for new Obama Muppets to feature in the ad?

Gibbs also believes the Big Bird ad raised “an important point.”
