Sesame Street requests Obama
Big Bird ad be taken down

Politico, by Byron Tau

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/9/2012 12:30:10 PM

The production company behind Sesame Street is asking political campaigns to refrain from using their characters in campaign ads — including an Obama campaign ad that uses Big Bird. "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," the company said in a Tuesday statement. The Obama campaign released an ad early Tuesday that hit Mitt Romney on his proposal to defund PBS. The ad features Big Bird,

Comments:
Sesame Street is nonpartisan?? What a laugh. That ad is pathetically stupid anyway.

Very surprised and pleased Sesame Street made the request so quickly.

They may be "non-partisan" but have a definate social view (hint: not conservative), but they aren't stupid.

And they probably don't wan to be associated with the empty chair either.

Just saw the ad. You have to admit, it's well done and hilarious. Of course, if I was running for President, I wouldn't want ads that look like they were made by SNL.

At any rate, I agree with the above poster. Obama is desperate. And the fact that Sesame Street is distancing from Obama speaks volumes.

One thing for sure, the cloak of darkness that the left machine has had in place for so long is now being destroyed as zippy has completely driven much of the public awake. A lot less "feel good" emotion works anymore, the nation is numb to the squeals of racist, and we are starting to actually ask about the effectiveness of our elected employees and government. Zippy will have a whole lotta 'splainin' to do to his founders.

For anyone who doesn't realize this...think of manufacturing plants which make thousands of the Big Bird dolls...think of them put into boxes to be shipped to stores.

Sesame Street and Big Bird and his pals..are a huge huge corporate moneymaker in this country.

If there was ever proof that this outfit doesn't need taxpayer backing...it is the corporate profit this entity group makes.

Believe me..it is not just some poor little birdie that is being picked on by the evil and waskly Wepublican. It is thousands and thousands of Big Bird dolls ready for consumers... all paying top "dollah." Sorry... wanted to sound like Obama.

Sesame Street morphed into Socialist Street over a decade ago.

For anyone who has children older than 20 who grew up with the original Sesame Street, you won't recognize the signature opening song of the show, given how it has been 'diversified.'

Sesame Street has been a top-selling brand for almost a generation. It's time to pull all funding from CPB/PBS, etc.

Some gal was quoted in our newspaper saying she would never vote for Romney now that she knows he is against Big Bird. She said Big Bird gave her ice cream when she was in the hospital. She's now 28 years old. I hope she grows up some day and thinks about our deficit and hers and her children's futures.

New York Times political correspondent turned left-wing editorial writer David Firestone unleashed a fiery attack on a GOP donor in an inflammatory nytimes.com post Monday afternoon: "The Line to Kiss Sheldon Adelson´s Boots." The very thought of Republican politicians speaking at a Las Vegas meeting of an Adelson-backed lobbying group made Firestone want to retch: It’s hard to imagine a political spectacle more loathsome than the parade of Republican presidential candidates who spent the last few days bowing and scraping before the mighty bank account of the casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

Chris Christie responded calmly, but strongly, to a question about Sharia Law, taking the occasion to address lingering concerns about a Muslim judge he appointed in 2011. “Sohail Mohammed knows as much about jihad as I do, being an Irish-American kid from Newark, New Jersey,” Christie said of the Indian-American judge who immigrated to America as a child. “It is ridiculous and insulting, that because I nominated Sohail Mohammed — that people some how think that means I’m for Sharia Law.

Dennis Rodman participated in the Legends of Basketball Tour 2014 in Argentina, which does not appear to be a surprise. He did play the game dressed as a drag queen. Then again, it is Dennis Rodman so maybe it is not such a surprise. After all, this is the man who dressed up as a bride in 1996 when he promoted his book Bad As I Wanna Be in New York City.

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it. Families were supposed to start saving about $2500 a year. If you believed the Obama administration. Reality, according to RAND‘s study, is that the Obama administration’s 7 million figure is deceptive. Supposing 7 million have actually signed up and paid their first premium — which is not a given,

This month marks the fifth anniversary of the current bull market on Wall Street, making it one of the longest and strongest in history. Yet U.S. stock ownership is at a record low and less than half of Americans trust banks and financial services. And in the last two weeks, the New York attorney general and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission in Washington have both launched investigations into high-frequency computerized stock trading that now controls more than half the market.

In a statement issued by the State Department, Kerry called denial of climate change science “malpractice” and warned the “costs of inaction are catastrophic.” “Read this report and you can´t deny the reality: Unless we act dramatically and quickly, science tells us our climate and our way of life are literally in jeopardy,” Kerry said.

A powerful network of Jeb Bush loyalists, from previous high-ranking campaign staffers to top donors, increasingly have been communicating and coalescing as they await a decision from the former Florida Republican governor on whether he will run for president in 2016. "We are keeping our powder dry," said Justin Sayfie, Bush´s former communications director and chief speechwriter. Publicly, Bush consistently has said he is still weighing a potential bid for president in 2016 but has yet to make up his mind. "I will make a decision later in the year," Bush told reporters after speaking in Davie, Fla., a week

Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
