President Obama was on the ropes in the polls after the first presidential debate. After the second presidential debate, he hit the mat in the polls. And after the third presidential debate, he looks to be down for the count.
For an 8-footer with a lot of yellow feathers and a bird's brain,
Big Bird is a fellow with a lot of friends in medium-high places. Barack
Obama has even commissioned a campaign commercial taking Mitt Romney to
task for treating the bird with something less than reverence. The Bird is
all he's talking about.
