Whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell‘s (R-Ky.) reputation as a deft political operator takes a hit in the wake of the Senate’s failure to replace Obamacare is yet to be seen, but one person has noted a comparison to a famous nefarious character: Mr. Burns from The Simpsons.

Just in case you can’t see it clearly enough, that is McConnell echoing the brooding and malevolent owner of the Springfield nuclear power plant. Here it is side-by-side.

People were quick to chime in with various Simpsons references.

Of course, there were other demonic beings that McConnell—who just attempted to pass a healthcare bill that would add to the ranks of uninsured—reminded people of.

That said, if McConnell truly was a ghoul of some sort, it would definitely be a haunted turtle.
