With all this talk of Big Bird suddenly becoming the focus of the Obama campaign we thought it was a perfect opportunity to bring out a hilarious series of look-a-like photos from a loyal reader. They are so good we’ll be releasing them in a multi-part series over the next couple of weeks.

As tensions are high and mud is flying at full throttle with only 5 days until ballots drop, we thought it also might be a good time for some bipartisan parody.

Has anyone ever noticed how much Rep. Max Tyler (D-Maggots) resembles the Lorax?

Or House Speaker Pro Tempore Kevin Priola (R-Henderson), America’s favorite hapless father?

Rep. Dickey Lee Hullinghorst (D-Boulder) is a dead ringer for Scooby Doo’s Velma:

In both appearance and mannerism, Congressional candidate and Rep. Sal Pace (D-Urination) and the Pillsbury Doughboy appear to have been separated at birth…
