That after Mitt made that comment about Big Bird, the theme went completely viral, spawning dozens of wonderful cartoons and photos of Big Bird, Bert, Ernie and the gang.... begging for a reprieve.It was about two days later that the Republicans began to fight back.How?By downplaying the effectiveness of the massive and humorous campaign- which was NOT AT ALL BEING DIRECTED BY THE OBAMA CAMPAIGN... though the Republicans would prefer that folks believe that.The Obama campaign jumped on board late in the game, and their efforts were awkward.But my hat is off to the dozens of creative and very funny people who immediately seized upon this gaff by Romney.(even if the creators of Big Bird later asked folks to refrain from dragging Big Bird into the fray)And for those who continue to grouse about how there are more important things than talking about Big Bird.... I ask:THEN WHY DID ROMNEY BRING BIG BIRD UP?Nah.... the viral campaign to save Big Bird was fabulous.
