Who's the Mr. Rogers of the presidential race?

Earlier this morning, we considered whether it was Pete Buttigieg.



But, here, Elizabeth Warren is vying for the title:

I don't think I'd like to be her neighbor; she seems like a Mrs Kravitz.

Buttigieg’s looks like a family photo. But, of course, not his family. Which makes it a little creepy. Whose wife and child is he posing with?

tim maguire said...

Also, foreshortening, perhaps, but he has a weirdly big head attached to a too small body.

It's fun to imagine Trump vs Buttigeig at debates. I'm not sure Trump should be mean to him. He is just a kid after all.

I reckon Senator Warren was thinking of this episode:

Mister Rogers arrives with a collection of Native American clothing which he puts on instead of his usual sweater and sneakers. Wearing a jacket, moccasins, necklace, and headdress, he watches a film of boy scout troop performing Native American dances.

After Mister Rogers makes a shaker with a cup and dry beans, Mr. McFeely stops by with a cradleboard borrowed from the Neighborhood museum. With a baby doll inside, Mister Rogers explains how the cradleboard is used before he sings I'm Taking Care of You.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is at the castle taking measurements for a street fair booth when Lady Elaine Fairchilde arrives. She is excited to learn about the fair and decides that her contribution will be as a cowgirl with a lasso. She invites Handyman Negri to wear a costume and be her bull.

King Friday emerges from the castle and declares that he will have a "Kiss the King" booth at the fair. Of course, he wants to be sure that Sara Saturday knows about it.

Daniel Striped Tiger is planning a game for his booth where he will wear a Native American headdress while players throw badminton birdies into a basket. He and Handyman Negri try out the game and decide it should be located next to the King's booth. That way people can play the game while waiting to kiss King Friday.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about families within the Native American culture as he shows a handmade basket. Mr. McFeely returns to pick up the cradleboard.

Good one Rob...

Has she now denied her Native American heritage? First Native American President seems like just the thing Democrats go for...

She’s so dumb.

Whenever I see an image of Buttigieg I think how spot on Trump was comparing him to Alfred E. Neuman.In this photo of Mayor Pete, the odd angle of his head - just really emphasizes the Neumaness.
Having never watched Mr Rogers I associate women changing into sneakers with commuting via mass transit.

Mr. Rogers was a kids’ program.

The Democrats want to rip the kids to shreds before they are born.

Yang.

Looks like my #PledgeForHumanity will be helping out a bunch of dogs and animals tomorrow. They are our best friends. 😀👍

Give that man a sweater.

I remember being pretty sure that Misterrogers was gay.

That picture of Butt Edge is obviously photoshopped.

BUMBLE BEE said...

I call Bullshit!!!!... That is ALFRED E NEUMAN!!!

William said...

Mr. Rogers is a reach for Elizabeth Warren. Maybe Margaret Hamilton. I don't even think that deep down inside she's all that thrilled to spend hours and hours standing and smiling with perfect strangers.....Yang looks like he genuinely enjoys campaigning, but he's the only one.

Pete is a game show host. He could take over for Bob Eubanks on the Dating Game. “In the butt, Bob” makes sense to him!

Elizabeth Warren? There’s a playground looking for a supervisor somewhere.

>> Wearing a jacket, moccasins, necklace, and headdress <<

Would have been more authentic if he had been riding a horse down the trail buck naked.

Tommy Duncan said...

Warren pegs out my lame-o-meter. The young small town mayor is not far behind.

The Democrats want to rip the kids to shreds before they are born.

And after, if the Twilight's fringe-fringe are ever normalized. Actually, planned parenthood happens after birth when the abortionist's scalpel fails to terminate the "burden" while inside the mother's womb. A wicked solution, to an albeit hard problem: the pursuit of wealth, pleasure, leisure, narcissistic indulgence, social justice, social progress, medical progress, and democratic leverage.

He was merry and cheerful, the very model of a happy host. Gay, before trans/homos appropriated the word for empathetic appeal.

Doug said...

While she's changing into sneakers, she ought to also change out of that black top that she wears EVERY SINGLE DAY. that thing must smell like kasha, dandruff, and vomit by now.

Except that WArren is a phony about it.

Tomcc said...

Maybe it’s just me, but I get a distinct Miss Grundy vibe from Ms. Warren.

rcocean said...

I have to give Warren credit, she may be a terrible Senator, but she looks Damn Good for 70. But good looking or not, I don't want the HS Vice-Principle who coaches the Girl's Field Hockey Team as President.

rcocean said...

I hated Mr. Rodgers even when I was five. He was boring.

Ken B said...

Rcocean
Yep. I find her more attractive than Buttigieg, who is half her age.

Farmer might disagree.

Ken B said...

That Buttigieg pic looks .... doctored.

stevew said...

Warren is that neighbor that talks to you while you are out for some exercise and goes on and on long past the point of politeness and congeniality. Speaking for myself I would execute an abrupt about face when seeing her strolling down the driveway.

"But, here, Elizabeth Warren is vying for the title:"

Needs a 'Malarkey' tag.

Point and laugh, and I read today how its going to be a close race LOL with the Donald and whoever. KAG

Mary Beth said...

She thinks that because she's wearing a cardigan and tennis shoes, she's like Mr. Rogers. All she sees is the surface.

wendybar said...

I HAVE to vote for her now. She has lines for selfies/SNARK!
