Barack Obama campaign ad attacks Mitt Romney over Big Bird

Forget unemployment or foreign policy, President Obama's campaign is all atwitter about Big Bird in its new ad about Mitt Romney's call at last week's presidential debates to reduce PBS subsidies. We knew the debate about Big Bird is a window into DC dysfunction, but this ad is quite a surprise. It's also kinda funny.

Update: The RNC responded with a graphic, invoking Count von Count, that suggests Obama would rather talk about Sesame Street than the economy or Libya.

The president's lackluster debate performance has emboldened Republicans and helped Romney surge in the latest polls. So this is certainly a good way to change the subject. But will it work?

The script:

Anncr: Bernie Madoff. Ken Lay. Dennis Kozlowski. Criminals. Gluttons of greed. And the evil genius who towered over them? One man has the guts to speak his name. (Visual: Romney at presidential debate) “Big Bird.” “Big Bird.” “Big Bird.” (Visual: Big Bird) “It’s me. Big Bird.” Big. Yellow. A menace to our economy. Mitt Romney knows it’s not Wall Street you have to worry about, it’s Sesame Street. (Visual:  Romney) “I’m Going To Stop The Subsidy To PBS.” Mitt Romney. Taking on our enemies, no matter where they nest.

This is the best the left has?

So much for Obama's "nice guy" image and any sense of seriousness. He got waxed in a debate, and a week later the best the left can come up with is to use big bird as a strawman?
