The Internet has given me so much. First, there were breasts. Then, there were cat videos. Now, there’s Ron [Paul] Swanson, and it’s my new favorite meme. Yeah, I said “meme” instead of “image macro.” Deal with it.

This groundbreaking project comes from RonPaulSwanson.tumblr.com, and combines the image of libertarian-leaning Republican Ron Paul with the timeless wisdom of Parks and Rec character Ron Swanson. And by god, it matches up perfectly. But don’t take my word for it. Check out the pics below, and visit the site for yourself to see Ron [Paul] Swanson in all his glory.

When the biopic of Ron Paul’s life is inevitably made by independent producers, it shouldn’t be too difficult to cast him. Assuming that Andy Serkis isn’t available, there’s still a lot that can be done with make-up and computer-generated wizardry. A bulbous nose here, some fuzzy eyebrows there and, viola, instant Ron Paul. Should money be an issue, here are nine actors that could play the part and still turn in a powerhouse performance.

Ian McKellan

The hands down best choice for the role is Sir Ian McKellan. Not only do they share a physical resemblance, but McKellan is an amazing actor that audiences sympathize with even when he’s doing evil things like playing a Nazi or hooking Anna Paquin up to the Statue of Liberty’s laser gyroscope. This is an important quality to have if you want to rely on a battery of attack ads.

Tigger

Probably the most accomplished performer on this list, Tigger has proven himself a box office draw time and time again. Tigger’s career spans over sixty years and he still remains a favorite with kids and adults alike. BUT his works is a little childish. We get it. He likes to bounce. He’s a very physical performer but it’s time that this tiger find a role he can really sink his teeth into. Surely he must be eager to prove he’s also nimble as a dramatic actor. If only Disney would release him from his contract.

Fred Astaire

This one could be a bit tricky. Fred Astaire passed away in 1987 but Hollywood has come a long way since then. Computers today could easily render a Fred Astaire composite to tell the story of Paul‘s race for the presidency. But if they’re going to go to all that trouble, they could just as easily render a composite of Paul himself. Wouldn’t bring in the Broadway crowd though…
