Playing "Which TV Character Are You" with the 2016 GOP Candidates
Did you know “Jeb” is an acronym of the 2016 presidential candidate’s full name, John Ellis Bush? Does that remind you of anyone?
Yes, that’s one Mr. George Oliver Bluth, better known as Gob.
And the similarities don’t end there. Both have family members who deserve to be in jail for what they did in Iraq. It’s so eerie that Medium.com has become convinced Jeb and Gob are the same person.
That got us thinking… Which other candidates have dopplegangers on TV?
Mike Huckabee & Seventh Heaven dad Stephen Collins. They’re both former pastors who are surprisingly cool with child touching.
Scott Walker & NCIS head Mark Harmon. Surprisingly strong in the ratings for someone you keep forgetting exists.
Ben Carson and snake oil charlatan Dr. Oz. It’s easy to forget these guys were once legitimate doctors and leaders in their fields until some idiot decided to put them on TV.
Rand Paul and Game of Thrones wannabe major player Cersei Lannister. You’re only where you are because of your father, and you’re not nearly as clever as you think you are.
Carly Fiorina and Star Trek: Voyager Captain Kathryn Janeway. Someone, undoubtedly a white male, decided a woman was a good idea, and while he wasn’t necessarily wrong, you are best forgotten.
Marco Rubio and 30 Rock page Kenneth. A likeable, backwards, misogynist scamp who the powers-that-be inexplicably think is ready to run the whole shebang.
