(Newser) – Jon Stewart has had exactly enough of this Big Bird stuff from the Obama campaign. From stump speeches to a campaign ad, the big yellow guy is everywhere these days, Stewart noted on last night's Daily Show. The tipping point for the host: Will.i.am's appearance on the trail, during which he played the Sesame Street theme song and offered a "half-assed remix." The Big Bird focus, Stewart points out, is allowing even John McCain to laugh at the president "for using a cartoonish childlike figure to invigorate his campaign," reports Mediaite—something McCain might know a bit about.
