I love you.

Waxman is also dead on.

Nice job subby.
 
2012-05-02 07:02:03 PM  
They all resemble Muppets because they are all being controlled by hands up their asses!
 
2012-05-02 07:04:00 PM  
I love Rowlf, he's my favorite muppet. Though I think there's prolly other members of Congress who more accurately resemble him that that dude no one's ever heard of.
 
2012-05-02 07:04:06 PM  
You sir, have insulted Muppets everywhere with this comparison.
 
2012-05-02 07:06:04 PM  
Eric Cantor is frighteningly spot on.

Waxman is also really good.
 
2012-05-02 07:07:45 PM  
The Animal comparison doesn't really work, but the rest are spot on.
 
2012-05-02 07:09:21 PM  
I like boehner due to the color match to scooters felt.
 
2012-05-02 07:13:48 PM  
God, Boehner's skin color is freaky. People should not be that color.
 
2012-05-02 07:14:45 PM  
I didn't realize Scooter always cried like a biatch.

Awesome link, subby. I take back half of the things I've said about you.
 
2012-05-02 07:20:27 PM  
It's funny because Scooter is also orange.
 
2012-05-02 07:21:27 PM  
That was charming and funny in a way that things like that almost never are. Thanks, Subby!

I think former Speaker Dennis Hastert looks like the Muppet's 'Mighty Favog' from SNL.

Especially with a whole chicken stuffed in Denny's mouth.

In that one famous pic on the internet, he looks more like Beaker.

"The Muppets They Resemble" is even a better band name than "Bionic Llama."
 
2012-05-02 08:26:17 PM  
I don't remember Scooter uncontrollably sobbing about his entirely invented past in order to gain political ground while being an intolerable asshole more than once..
 
2012-05-02 08:26:55 PM  
maybe I missed out on the DVD commentary...

Hell, sometimes I think Traficant's wearing a Muppet.

Bravo Subby. Excellent Find.

"So, how you'd get all those soulless hunks of material in one place?"
"I waited till they were in session. After that, I called the Henson family and borrowed the puppets"

Doh-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho
 
2012-05-02 08:59:08 PM  
Comparing a Jewish senator to a muppet that is literally hook-nosed is either genius, or idiocy.
 
2012-05-02 08:59:44 PM  
Subby wins because the opening comparison is a not bad Beaker. I just knew there had to be a Beaker in there somewhere.

Cheers.

/Why yes, TFA and comments go better with pot. Why do you ask?
 
2012-05-02 09:03:13 PM  
I like how usually they name the Muppet first, but not always, and sometimes they give the Congressperson's first name, but not always.
 
2012-05-02 09:17:36 PM  
so, where's that felonious asshole Issa?

Had it just been a picture of Gonzo, and not a picture of Gonzo in the exact same pose, it might have been in poor taste.

That said, to me the only one of the bunch that made me go "oh" was the Miss Piggy one.
