Diana DeGette + John Hickenlooper = Ellen DeGeneres

An early strategy being used to undermine John Hickenlooper in his run for the governorship is actually an old favorite -- portraying him as too liberal. That's the theme of the video above, put together by , a humor-oriented political website overseen by Republican stalwarts Kelly Maher and Mary Smith , in which a quote about Hick by Diana DeGette -- "If you look at some of the things he's done, he's probably at least as liberal as me" -- is illustrated by morphing her photo with his.

What's more startling, though, is the mid-transformation moment when the merged DeGette and Hickenlooper look uncannily like Ellen DeGeneres. Too bad they're both married -- because together, they could create an incredible talk-show host.
