Fresh off an election year reprieve, Big Bird came to the White House to film two new public service announcements marking the third anniversary of Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" initiative while trolling Mitt Romney with a victory dance. And if you thought these feel-good PSAs couldn't possibly stir the angersphere into a rage, you have not been paying attention:

Mitt Romney's Big Bird quip during Wednesday night's debate has been the subject of a fair amount of mockery on the web this week.
Luckily, he's got surrogates like Rick Santorum to back him up…
"I've voted to kill Big Bird in the past," Romney's ex-primary rival said. "I have a record there that I have to disclose. That doesn't mean I don't like Big Bird. You can kill things and still like them, maybe to eat them, I don't know. That's probably that. Can we — can we go back on that one?"
No need. I think you nailed it.
