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?”
Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., right, hugs Harold Schaitberger, General President of the International Association of Fire Fighters, after the Congressman spoke at the IAFF's Legislative Conference General Session at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, March 9, 2015. The day featured addresses by members of Congress and Vice President Joe Biden.
