Politicians cannot escape the frequently unflattering but often hilarious photo mash-ups that have come to dominate the web.
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan was idolized by adoring fans of economic reform in the “Hey Girl, It’s Paul Ryan” meme, a photo of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton holding her Blackberry went viral in the “Texts from Hillary” meme and now Members of Congress have been paired up with the Muppets characters they most resemble in a recent post from Cloture Club, an Capitol Hill-centered blog.
Here are a few favorites:
Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., as Fozzie Bear, the Muppet comedian with the quirky laugh.
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, as Gonzo, the Muppet’s resident daredevil.
Rep. James Lankford, R-Okla., as Beaker, the absent-minded and accident-prone Muppet lab assistant.
Rep. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., as Animal, the Muppet’s eccentric drummer.
