Big Bird voting in Texas (pic)
The line to get in and vote was long. Edd and I stood in it for more than half an hour. The Bird suit was like Lady Gaga — hot and itchy. An old guy standing in line in front of me the whole time was trying to ignore me, and he was doing a pretty good job of it. He probably thought I was an idiot. But a lot of women wanted to take my picture.
“I’ve got to get a picture of Big Bird going to vote,” one woman said. “That’s very good.”
“I shaved my legs for this?” Edd said.
“Vote right, Big Bird,” said a woman who was walking by. Maybe she was a Republican.
There was some grumbling from the right, by the way. Edd said one woman asked if the taxpayers were paying for my security, my security being Edd. People are easier to dupe than they used to be, huh? My “security” is being taken to lunch for his work, and I’m paying for it. We’re having chicken.
I didn’t have any problems getting past the poll workers. For one thing, they’d been alerted that Big Bird was coming. And by the time I reached them, I had taken off the enormous bird head. What a relief. Wearing the head was hot, and I didn’t want to pass out on the floor dressed like a spastic canary.

3. I'm surprised he made it past the poll workers. Given how "visible" Romney made BB to his campaign…
I'm surprised someone didn't deny him entry based on electioneering laws.
