    True to form, Katie asks a hard-hitting question that catches the muppets off guard. "Which comic strips do you Muppets regularly read to inform your worldview?" Answer: "Uh, all of them?"

    "Well I am quite impressed, Elmo...You actually know more about START and our international relations with Russia than Sarah Palin does...Good for you...."

    I can't believe this crap. They never would have had Dan Rather interviewing the Muppets.

    Now that nuclear weapons are back in the news, Katie Couric gives the Seseme Street puppets a lesson on how to correctly pronounce "nuclear proliferation".

    Why do you ask? Who does your hair Katie?

    Katie Couric loses her train of thought when she realizes that she is having a serious conversation with a nicely dressed human arm and Elmo really isn't alive.

    Sorry Elmo, the new health care system doesn't include muppets

    "Yes, Katie, I did have a colonoscopy, and , with the exception of a few dust bunnies , I am 'tickled' to report that all is fine!"

    Elmo – "Katie, I don't understand why the people accuse the media of being puppets of the administration. Puppets don't take sides. We're tolerant of everyone of all colors – red, blue, green..."

    To help her ratings, Katie Couric agrees to some new co anchors.

    Elmo: Well Katie , that's an extremely personal question, and it has absolutely nothing to do with my golf game!

    Katie- So you're saying then Elmo, through the economic downturn, being ticklish helped Sesame Street profits grow at an average of 15%?

    "Besides you three, are you aware of any others that had affairs with Miss Piggy, and do you support her in her rehabilitation for being a Sex Addict?"

    Why are you looking at me like that? I had nothing to do with Big Birds untimely demise!

    Elmo: Katie, before you ask your elite media questions, tell us what "newspapers" you read?

    Tensions ran high when Elmo took the liberty of poking fun at Katie's new hair style.

    So, Elmo, Jessie and Rosita, do you think the letter G a good letter or a grouchy letter?

    "So, on a side note. What do you think about my glasses? I know Sarah Palin has been on the DL lately however, I LOVE her style. I think Sesame Street Optical has them in muppet size if your interested."

    Thank you Rosita, it is refreshing to see that even young kids read more than Sara Palin

    When asked why Anderson Cooper wasnt' at the event to speak, Katie Couric explains she was all the event could afford and CBS needed the money...
