The Obama campaign is capitalizing on Mitt Romney’s promise to cut funding to PBS and Sesame Street’s Big Bird with a new ad mocking Romney’s dedication to stripping this funding. During the last Wednesday’s debate, Romney mentioned cutting funding to PBS even though he likes Big Bird in order to cut the deficit.
“Bernie Madoff, Ken Lay, Dennis Kozlowski, criminals, gluttons of greed,” the narrator says. “And the evil genius who towered over them? One man has the guts to speak his name.”
The ad then cuts to footage of Mitt Romney saying three separate times, “Big Bird.”
