We’re Ruled By Vanessa?
For reasons surpassing understanding, The Huffington Post has released a list of twenty-five politicians from across the country who (in HuffPo‘s opinion) resemble Disney characters. Because, you know, there’s nothing really important happening in the country right now.
No. 22 on the list? S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley, who is said to favor Vanessa from The Little Mermaid.
Take a look …

For those of you who haven’t seen the movie, Vanessa is the human alter-ego of Ursula – the “sea witch” from the famous Hans Christian Andersen tale.
She is described by the official Disney Wiki as an “extremely beautiful seductive woman” who puts on “a convincing facade of innocence” and uses her “hypnotizing voice” to brainwash a charming, but gullible prince.
Vanessa also possesses “teleportation” and “shapeshifting” capabilities … which presumably include the ability to alter one’s ideologies at a moment’s notice based on political convenience.
Oh, and she can also “summon storms …”
Impressive huh? Of course we would be remiss not to point out the down side …
“Vanessa’s public facade of innocence gradually, but quickly, disappears,” once her spell is broken, at which point she “becomes vicious and shrill in her attempts to defend herself.”
So we’ve got that to look forward to …
Anyway, HuffPo clearly didn’t reach out to the governor for her thoughts on the matter. If they had, they would have learned she’s already spoken for when it comes to cartoon comparisons.
