Hawaii is just getting used to the nasally monotone of its new governor, but David Ige -- the Twitterverse has noted -- sounds eerily familiar:
David Ige sounds like a child learning to read out loud using Kermit the Frog's voice. #KITVdebate

My 12 yr old just said “David Ige sounds like Kermit the Frog”…I swear to God I never said that in front of him so you know he speaks truth!

But Ige isn't the only frog in the puddle. Turns out, the recognizable and calming inflection has gotten more than one politician elected.
Michigan governor Rick Snyder has been eliciting comparisons to everyone's favorite Muppet since he was elected four years ago.
Twitter took note of the similarity again last week during Snyder's State of the State address:
Just noticed that Governor Snyder sounds exactly like Kermit the frog. #StateoftheState

Things that can't be unheard: My Mom just said Governor Snyder sounds like Kermit the Frog.

While both governors may have frogs in their throats (sorry!), there can only be one gubernatorial Amphibitarian.
