Hey, party people! HOH is coming back after a lovely recess where we caught our breath after the craziness of the debt ceiling debacle. But now the gang of (not quite) 535 are returning ... and we’re giving them a hero’s welcome with this arbitrary list: Members of Congress as "South Park" characters!
We’re not sharing the whole list here. Just a few favorites.
(South Park primer found here. For a Congressional primer check out CQ Roll Call on the daily.)
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor would be Craig Tucker because he would be sooooo happy if he could just tell Members of Congress and the White House how he feels about them ... and we think he must secretly flip lots of people off.
If only we could just swap out the dialogue between Eric Cartman and Dr. Nelson for some of the more choice repartee between Reps. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.). These two have gone toe-to-toe on the floor of the House just like Cartman and Nelson and the image makes us laugh.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) are heretofore represented by the characters Randy and Sharon Marsh because Randy is generally fighting for some cause and Sharon, well, Sharon is always just a bit disappointed.
Finally, on any given day, the trio of bros, GOP Reps. Louie Gohmert (Texas), Steve King (Iowa) and Ted Poe (Texas), pop over to the floor of the House to give their best Sheila Broflovski impression via a special order speech. For which we thank them with a “What, what, WHAT?”
