“Redskins Rule” Predicts Winner of the Presidential Election

If this holds true we should have an early look at who our president is going to be 2 days before election day. 

ESPN – The “Redskins Rule” 18 for 18 in terms of predicting the presidential elections since 1940, a Redskins’ victory this Sunday over the Carolina Panthers would seem to indicate another term in office for Obama, while a Panthers win would bode well for Mitt Romney and the Republicans.

Obama ad uses Big Bird to attack Romney

A week after Big Bird became an unlikely character in the 2012 presidential campaign when Mitt Romney uttered his name in the first debate, the Obama campaign has approved a new ad that uses the “Sesame Street” character to attack the Republican nominee’s plan to cut federal funding for PBS.

Ok this is a little embarrassing.  I mean I get the point that he’s semi trying to make here, but to use Big Bird, an American icon in your campaign add is just absurd.  Other countries are watching this election closely and the leader of the free world just sent out an attack add using a 7 foot tall, talking big yellow bird.  Clean it up boys.
