The Tea Party mindset, which has devoured the GOP, bears a striking resemblance to another area of our culture.

The constant simplicity of things being either good or bad, the absolutes and extremes of their character, the exclusion of the real world from their awareness and being completely matter-of-fact about the absurd…

…they are just like cartoon characters…except not as complex.

Witness the lineup of GOP nominees for President and other prominent Republicans, most would seem right at home in the two-dimensional world of cartoons. Instead of describing the similarities at length, provided below for your consideration are GOP figures as they appeared in cartoons…before leaving that world for the far loonier land of Washington DC.

    Clarence Thomas reminds me of the epitome of Uncle Rukus

      HA!

      That one is just about perfect. They’re both pretty goddamn crazy. I think Ruckus may have him beat on the self hating part though. But only by a little.

    Hey I like the Demon chick from Ugly Americans. I mean who else can get away with saying “Oh my dark Lord” while having fire come out of her nipples. Palin wishes she could keep it that classy.

      • AlphaBitch says:

        Hey AdLib: There’s even a video on Youtube of Karl stuttering, interlaced with Porky stuttering. They repeat the stutters for faaarrrrr too long -- watch only a few seconds. You’ll get the gist.


        • Khirad says:

          Someone please tell me why great YouTube ideas like this are frequently repeated like that? Too much SNL? Like, we didn’t get it the first time and we have to squeeze all the good from it until viewers are adequately annoyed and slightly agitated?

          I’ve see this many times. It’s as if they were so impressed with themselves -- as right they should be -- that they forget we have the power to play it again.

        • AdLib says:

          Very funny and as you say, it should’ve been a quickie! Now if only we could borrow Wile E. Coyote’s Acme charge card and launch him in a catapult to the moon.

    Bachmann, or Bat Boy? I post, you decide!

    Didn’t James Carville become a Republican during the gulf oil crisis? What happened to him anyway? Poof! Here he is as “Scorpius” from “Farscape”, an Australian sci-fi series.

    So is the Michael Steele comparison off limits since Jon Stewart beat us to it?

    Is this one a little too on the nose?:

    Newt Gingrich looks like the character of Masaru from “Akira.”

    I hate to say it, but Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann sorta remind me of …. my avatar… (when she’s being naughty and goes a little crazy :D)

    Sarah Palin and Haruko Haruhara!

    [img][/img]

    Haruko (going really, REALLY crazy) and Michele Bachmann! Eeeek!

    Waaay too funny and irresistible! Thanks for the post and the great stuff here! My additions:

    John McCain as Joe BTFSPLK from “lil Abner” (who walks around with a perpetually dark rain cloud a foot over his head. Once he appears on any scene, dreadfully bad luck befalls anyone in his vicinity.)
