(Breitbart) President Barack Obama has created controversy with an ad attacking rival Mitt Romney for his perceived animosity toward Sesame Street icon Big Bird. Though the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and fellow Democrats have advised against the tactic, the President has held firm in his defense of the substantial yellow puppet.
Why would Obama choose this as the battle line for his reelection campaign? It didn't quite make sense, which led inquisitive journalists to keep digging. Unbeknownst to many, Obama's relationship with the feathered giant extends far beyond the past two weeks. From his youth to the present, the 44th president and Big Bird have carried on an intimate relationship, which has made them what anthropologists refer to as "BFFs."
