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.)
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.
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?”
James Jones, communications director for DC Vote, tapes a "DC Constituents Service Day" sign on the wall as he stands with other DC residents outside of Rep. Andy Harris's office on Capitol Hill to protest Harris' actions against D.C.'s marijuana laws on Thursday, July 24, 2014. DC Vote encouraged DC residents to bring their complaints about city services to the Maryland congressman.
