Congressional Muppets

For the Fourth of July, a seldom-seen Muppet sketch. This aired in 1982 on the I Love Liberty special. Developed by Norman Lear for his People for the American Way non-profit to celebrate the 250th birthday of George Washington, this segment sees Big Bird and Martin Sheen (before he was president, natch) discussing turmoil, leading to a pre-taped sketch featuring the Muppets as the Continental Congress.

UPDATE 10:18 AM: Apparently there's a new video for this year!
