While the rest of the world was watching the new Twilight movie this weekend, we decided to check out The Muppets. It was filled with nostalgia and there were cameos at every turn. (We won’t ruin all of them for you). The one that stuck out most was cameo-whore and Democratic pundit James Carville. It’s towards the end of the movie and he’s caught up in an avalanche of celebrities, so don’t blink. Not to mention, the man looks like a real life Bunsen Honeydew.

We reached out to Carville to see if he is a Muppet fan. “I’m a little too old to be a lifelong fan, but since they’ve been around, I’ve certainly been a fan,” he says. When we asked who his favorite Muppet is, Carville answered “I’d have to say Miss Piggy. I’m pretty comfortable following Kermit’s judgment. It’s not easy being green, or a Democrat sometimes. Miss Piggy is a classy woman. I can see what Kermit sees in her. I’ve got a pretty classy woman in Mary Matalin, myself.”   Um, did he just compare his wife to Miss Piggy?
