Megalornithophobia: Fear of big birds forced Romney to skip kids talk

Nickelodeon just announced that Mitt Romney has refused to go on the children’s television network to answer questions from America’s children, while his opponent, President Obama, will answer the children’s questions.

Here is a portion of Nickelodeon’s press release:

The thing Mitt Romney fears the most.

Nick News traveled around the country videotaping kids asking the candidates questions. This year’s special features President Barack Obama who sat down with Nick News at the White House to answer kids’ questions. After numerous attempts by Nick News to get former Governor Mitt Romney to participate in the special, his camp declined saying he was unable to fit it into his schedule. The special features previously taped video clips of Romney addressing some of the issues raised in the questions as well as bios of both candidates.

It’s appears that Romney is still suffering from a serious bout of megalornithophobia, an inordinate and irrational fear of large ticked off birds.

But seriously.  On the day Mitt Romney does his tough-guy speech on foreign policy, threatening to get our country involved in a third budget-busting war in Syria, he’s caught running in fear from a bunch of children because he’s afraid they’re going to ask him why he wants to kill their best friend.

Somehow I imagine the Syrian thugs aren’t all that impressed.

Neither are we.
