Obama Stops in San Francisco, Informs Crowd That Elmo Is Headed for the Border

During his stop in San Francisco yesterday, President Obama continued the aggressive Sesame Street rhetoric that's really upped the ante in this year's presidential election.

Obama just couldn't help himself after last week's debate when Romney trashed poor people and Big Bird. In case you didn't have $20K to hear the president speak last night, Obama explained how the rest of the muppets are handling Romney's plan to slash funding for their beloved PBS.

"Finally, somebody is cracking down on Big Bird. Elmo has been seen in a white Suburban. He's driving for the border."

If that sounds familiar, it's because it is; yes, the president was poking fun at O.J. Simpson.

In any event, the Obama campaign is certainly having fun with this one. Here's his latest ad, which should help him lock up the manchild vote.
