I’m convinced now they’re really trying to lose this thing. They can’t possibly be so out of touch.
Team Romney has decried Democrats’ repeated mentions of Big Bird since Mitt Romney brought up the beloved muppet while declaring his intention to end the federal subsidy for PBS during last week’s presidential debate, but the Obama campaign shows no sign that they intend to stop invoking Sesame Street any time soon. In fact, at an Obama rally at Ohio State University this afternoon, rapper will.i.am performed a rendition of the theme song of the popular children’s television show to rile up the president’s supporters.
According to Politico reporter Reid Epstein, who was on the scene at the Ohio State rally, will.i.am’s Sesame Street stylings may not have had the desired effect.
“Much, much more enthusiasm when @iamwill plays Journey than for the Sesame Street theme song,” Mr. Epstein wrote on Twitter.
Based on his other tweets from the event, Mr. Epstein clearly wasn’t impressed with will.i.am’s performance.
“So what is will.i.am ’s talent again?” he asked.
While we’re going there, what’s Obama’s talent?
