Separated at Birth: HuffPost’s Ryan Grim

This morning we match HuffPost‘s Washington Bureau Chief Ryan Grim and a couple of different characters. We see in him a lot of actor David William Harper, who played the part of Jim-Bob Walton on “The Waltons,.” We also detect more than a smidgen of the late Rep. Gerry Studds (D-Mass.). Don’t get us wrong, this is not meant to be a grim commentary on the journalist. We believe Grim to be a fine, upstanding American citizen. Studds, however, made headlines in in 1983 when he admitted to a relationship with a male page. He became the first openly gay member of Congress. The House censured him. Still, he was reelected and stayed in Congress until he retired in 1997.
