Feingold's lost father?

In the wake of Le Maverique's appearance on the Daily Show, Charlie Sykes says that Russ Feingold looks like comedian Soupy Sales. Yesterday, on Eric Von's show, I was told this was inaccurate and unfair.

Is this a cheap shot? Is it somewhat childish? Of course. On the other side, people claim that President Bush looks like Alfred E. Neumann.

I won't dismiss it out of hand, but not as close as Russ and Soupy.
