No more Big Bird attack ads? Time for some hilarious #NewObamaMuppets


The Obama campaign’s Muppet obsession grew even more pathetic today with the use of Big Bird in a pitiful attack ad that Sesame Workshop swiftly denounced. Heh. It’s not easy being the Chicago machine.

Perhaps it’s time for Team Obama to come up with some new Muppets for the next attack ad — ones that won’t result in a stern letter from the Muppeteers. Once again, @TheMorningSpew kicked off a hilarious hashtag and the Twitterverse helpfully offered some suggestions for #NewObamaMuppets that reflect the campaign’s Chicago-style values.

Naturally, there will be lapdog media burying their bones on Sesame Street.

But actually, the Obama campaign might not need to get so creative. Some members of Team Obama were born Muppet-ready. You know, if you like your Muppets extra creepy.
