Even Obama fans are getting a little tired of the Big Bird meme.

Hoping the O team was listening 2 criticism 2day & Sesame Street may die down. Then, http://t.co/HDCsojXP opens rally w/ theme song. Sigh.

The Obama campaign apparently wasn’t listening to Sesame Workshop either, who earlier asked the campaign to take down its pitiful ad featuring Big Bird, saying that as “a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization” it does not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns. Will.i.am is such a huge fan of Sesame Street, though, he’s ignoring their request.

Guess they didn't get Big Bird's memo. RT @toddstarnes: Sesame Street theme song being played at Obama Columbus rally.

Sesame Street asks Obama to remove Big Bird ad and the campaign answers that by playing their theme song at a rally? Harsh.

Can someone please tell us how to get away from Sesame Street? Please?
