I bet he got made fun of a lot as a kid. Who's laughing now?

As someone who lives in Kentucky, I thank you for this. It's the only time I've smiled when thinking about that horrible man.

That would be me.

Knee-slappin' hilarious.

Yeah, what deezil said.

Wow, I hate to say it, but this is probably the funniest thing I've seen all week. I love it when people look like turtles! (Am I the only one who keeps track of this in their daily life? OK, then.)

On one hand, he doesn't look anything like a turtle. But on the other hand, he looks exactly like a turtle.

He looks like the senator guy in the X-Men movie just before he dissolved into a puddle of slime. Fitting.

This is the only reason I have ever sent a link to anything on The Daily Caller to friends and likely is the only reason I ever will.

Is there some kind of master list of "X that look like Y" sites? So far, I can think of the following:
Cats that look like Ron Swanson
Cats that look like Wilford Brimley
Cats that look like Hitler
Lesbians who look like Justin Bieber
Stuff that looks like Jesus

Yes, that is indeed very funny.

BWAH HA HA HAA!

Yeah, another Kentuckian here. He lives in my neighborhood, I see him at Kroger on occasion. He does indeed look like a turtle in real life too.

Mitch dissolved into a puddle of slime a long time ago.

Is this turtle mocking or is McConnell a mock turtle?

Madamina: "Cats that look like Wilford Brimley"

Yes.

Even this doesn't justify giving them traffic.

I love turtles. How unfair to compare these ancient noble beasts to a slimy politician!
But yeah, he does look like a turtle, but not in a good way.

Turtles look friendlier and smarter and happier in general. Still, I'm pro-mocking so there's that.

'nother Kentuckian here. We have the two worst senators in the land, which wouldn't hurt so bad if the state (i mean, commonwealth) weren't already so generally bitched up. Though, come to think of it, that's exactly why we have the two worst senators. Mitch has no redeeming values.

Considering the life-span on some of these turtles, wouldn't it be more accurate to say "Here are some turtles that Mitch McConnell looks like"?

Because, after all, they were here, rocking the turtle look, way before he was.

Yet another Kentuckian here who is ashamed to be associated with this guy. But making fun of the way someone looks, and the fact that they probably got picked on as a kid, just because we don't like them? Thumbs down.

jbickers, I'd find it just as funny even if I liked him.

Better a turtle, I suppose, than being one of the ‘Creationists That Look Like Apes’.

Sorry to go Godwin but here's a house that looks like Hitler.

My question is what does the Daily Caller have against McConnell? You'd think they'd worship him.

My first thought was, "All of them."

The mere thought of comparing the looks of even the ugliest of turtles to Mitch McConnell is abhorrent to all turtles everywhere.

Funny, when I think of Mitch McConnell I think of Cupcake Dog.

This reminds me of ESPN's comparison of Jorge Posada and Cecil the Turtle. Perhaps more interesting is how dated some of those lookalikes are.

(Ghostbusters that look like Eric Cantor. Currently the count is at one.)
