The Daily Caller features Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) in its latest “Double-Take” installment, in which it matches politicians with “celebrity lookalikes.” And Landrieu is tagged with “Miss Piggy” of Jim Henson’s Muppet fame.
In describing its justification, the site offers this:
This week’s leading ladies are anything but bashful, and no one could miss their shared affection for pork. From Landrieu’s “$12 billion day” to the “Louisiana Purchase,” the senator would make Miss Piggy proud with her love for the limelight when it comes to bringing home the bacon.
Landieu’s love for green doesn’t stop with taxpayer cash – something else she and the pampered pink pig have in common. While Landrieu loves creating green jobs, Miss Piggy has a long history of chasing after her own elusive green dream: Kermit the Frog.
Miss Piggy’s complicated on again-off again relationship with Kermit is somewhat reminiscent of Landrieu’s (lack of) rapport with the Bayou State’s other senator, Republican David Vitter. The two are well known for their not-so-private disagreements, but unlike the lovable Miss Piggy and Kermit, we doubt they’ll be caught smooching in the Capitol anytime soon.
