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.

A number of the selections below were suggested by members, please feel free in your comments to add your own image for any of those listed below or any who aren’t included:

 John Boehner










Mitch McConnell


Mitt Romney



Michele Bachmann



Newt Gingrich


Eric Cantor


Sarah Palin


Tim Pawlenty


Rick Perry



Rupert Murdock


Haley Barbour


Chris Christie


Scott Walker


Ron Paul

    Clarence Thomas reminds me of the epitome of Uncle Rukus

      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.

    Rick Scott


    Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious

    O.K. go with me on this one:

    Karl Rove

    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.

    Again, you decide.

        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.

          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!

    Rick Scott
