Polifact Georgia tickled by Elmo, truthiness:

Move over, Elmo. After last week’s outbreak of truthiness, no one can be more tickled than PolitiFact Georgia.

Partisans were on target about subjects as disparate as county budget cuts and "Sesame Street," which launched the career of the Muppet that inspired the Tickle Me Elmo doll. They even fared well on the contentious issues of illegal immigration and abortion. The sole exception was President Barack Obama on Social Security checks.
