While Texas is a red state, there are some Lone Star Democrats too, as a local high school proved on Saturday.

A high school football game halftime show in Beaumont, Texas, featured a caricature of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney getting clobbered by Big Bird (video below).

Romney famously said he would cut funding for Big Bird, during a debate with President Obama.

In contrast, the caricature of President Obama danced and led the marching band, reports

The Beaumont Central Medical Magnet High School put on the show and defeated the Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School 44-28.

The Beaumont Central Medical Magnet High School band leader asked the crowd: “Are y’all going to vote on Tuesday?” but did not verbally endorse anyone.
