**First US Angry Birds Political Parody: http://angrybuckeyes.com**
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Gov. John Kasich's (R-Ohio) is meeting fierce opposition online, where "Angry Buckeyes" are taking on the governor for his attacks on working nurses, firefighters, cops and other hardworking Ohioans. "Angry Buckeyes," the first U.S. multimedia political parody inspired by the popular mobile game, "Angry Birds," was produced by America Votes Ohio.
The multimedia "Angry Buckeyes" campaign has people in Ohio signing up to fight back against Gov. Kasich's cuts. The effort lives on the microsite http://angrybuckeyes.com, complete with Facebook, Twitter, text message and email components. The video parody has slingshots to save nurses, police officers and fire fighters from "King Kasich" by firing angry Buckeyes within various structures, with the intent of saving public employees on the playing field.
"The survival of Ohio's middle class families is at stake!" says the video. "It's up to you to take action and fight back!"
"People are talking about the attack on nurses and fire fighters in Gov. Kasich's budget, and it's being met with outrage," said Khaled Salehi of America Votes Ohio. "We can't afford to have Gov. Kasich playing games with the lives of everyday working people on the front lines in the Buckeye State."
Angry Buckeyes is an attempt to simply explain the kind of treatment folks from public sector unions are receiving from the governor of Ohio. If Gov. Kasich gets his way, the livelihood of nearly one million hard working Ohioans will be at stake.
