The Yellow Peril

The campaign that is criticizing Mitt Romney for not offering substantive proposals is now making Big Bird a campaign issue. The very people who have been asking "Where's the beef?" have themselves taken up poultry as a political cause.

But I suppose it's better than championing pork, which, up until Big Bird showed, was the Democrat's favorite political meat.

If you think about it, this campaign season has already seen chicken become a political symbol. Many conservatives (no doubt mostly Republican) were just several weeks ago proudly mobbing Chik-fil-a restaurants all over the country in order to make a political statement. But they at least were paying for their chicken themselves and not asking taxpayers to borrow money from China to pay for it. And at least they were eating it.

Then again, a Spicy Chicken Sandwich can't talk back.
