New Obama Ad Hilariously, Sarcastically Mocks Romney's Big Bird Gaffe
Let me just preface this by saying that, yes, I know: This ad is as frivolous as it is awesome. I appreciate that the Obama campaign has a sense of humor and knows how to use that sense of humor to mock Mitt Romney, but obviously, it's not enough to win an election. He's going to have to improve his debate skills (in fact, he should take these notes from Jed Bartlett). It's not trending in Obama's way right now (in fact, according to Five Thirty-Eight, Obama's chances of winning have decreased by 10 percent since the debate, from 85 to 75 percent, while national polls have put the race at a dead heat).
Momentum has to be stopped if Obama hopes to win, and a funny ad is not going to do it.
That said, this ad -- which is not actually airing on television anywhere -- is fantastic, and people have been known to respond to a delightful sense of humor.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
