No Muppet Comparison for John Laird.

by lewwaters

In keeping with the spirit shown by the Columbian in their comparison of Muppet characters for elected officials and a few others, Ladies and Gentlemen, it’s the Muppet show! I thought it only fair to see what Muppet Characters fit the Columbian’s editors.

First was editor Lou Brancaccio compared to Count Von Count, the good natured Count whose vampire attire hides the fact that he his bark is worse than his bite.

Of Brancaccio, Madore and Count Von Count Lou emailed me saying, “The Count. I love it! Have a great week!”

Next comes political editor John Laird with his Sunday column, C-W differences amplified in election where as usual, he took pot shots at conservatives and those of us opposed to how the Columbia River Crossing project is being handled and the desire to force loot rail on us.

I couldn’t find a Muppet that does John justice, though. But recalling other cartoon characters, found one that seems to fit well.

As said in both Lou’s column and my post, Who loves ya, John? Me! (And Gargamel)
