Who Knew He Was A Republican?

According to an administration source, the two leading candidates to replace Scott McClellan as White House Press Secretary are Fox News host Tony Snow and Sesame Street's Elmo, shown here last Saturday accepting a Creative Craft Daytime Emmy Award for best performer in a children's series.

The source said that while Snow's Republican bona fides are reassuring to the administration, Pres. Bush recently told aides that the red-furred Muppet "gets me" and that Elmo's "tickle me" attitude might help deflect questions on the war in Iraq, the skyrocketing cost of gasoline and the president's plummeting approval rating.
