Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Neon Trotsky

    Now that it’s been scientifically established as a principle, can we officially diagnose Nick Gillespie with narcissistic personality disorder due to the hairdo?

  • trondant

    Itching for a rematch after the Reason party, are we?

  • problemwithcaring

    A spokesman for Blago’s Hairpiece states that it is deeply offended by this unfounded comparison. It will holding a news conference later today to address these charges.

  • Vanity Smurf

    Nick has (better) lips.

  • seriesoftubescleaner

    The War on Foreheads!

    And of course they’re both brothers of

  • riffin1
  • NoWireHangers

    Reason is soooo your imaginary boyfriend, Jim.

  • Deepthroat

    I think Gillespie is kinda hot in a Jemaine Clement kind of way. Blaggo: pasty and douchey.

  • jetjaguar

    Blago’s sideburns are a cry for help…

  • L Urchin

    Hmmmm I like it. Keep going in that direction and you’ll get Javier Bardem.

  • CrunchyKnee

    George Stephanopoulos wants his pelt back, god damnit!

  • FreshCliches

    Christ, just about anyone from The Dave Clark Five.

  • kmarie08wj

    Hmm… I feel like Blago looks more like a Who (his mouth area at least) than this Gillespie character…

  • One Yield Regular

    He reminds me of Mikhail Saakashvili, mostly in attitude. And for a while there they sported almost the same haircut.

  • OffTheRecord

    [re=197748]L Urchin[/re]: No! Don’t go that direction! Javier Bardem is the hot. I don’t want Blagodicks anywhere near him.

  • smashtheduck

    Or you could’ve just looked up a lego man.

  • orinos73
  • bumfug

    Alot of you are close but this mutt looks like he was separated at birth from Dan White, the guy that shot Harvey Milk. Of course Dan is no longer with us, as he connected his exhaust pipe to the inside of his car back in the ’80s. Sort of ironic when you think about it – the guy who murdered the first gay supervisor in SF died sucking on a hose…

  • gjdodger

    Sonofablagojevich is the ultimate libertarian–he sells Senate seats to the highest bidder! He should share a cell with that other noted free marketeer, Alan Greenspan.

  • JadedDIssonance

    [re=197765]OffTheRecord[/re]: he is most certainly NOT the “hot.” The man reminds me of a douche that my ex cheated on me with.

    hmm, I guess I see your point now…

    (i haz a sad)

  • p-Sludge ofTheElves

    Libertarian dude is a Dracula or a Mephistopheles.
    Bagojefich is some kind of were-rat maybe.

  • themcw
  • Mustang

    [re=197746]Deepthroat[/re]: Word. I don’t know from this Gillespies guy, but the guy in the photo appears to be hot. Blaggy appears to be not.

  • what tha?

    Blago seems to sporting a vestigial ape on his head, the other guy not so much.

  • Barrett808

    At least Blago can always return to his family’s homeland: In Serbia, Blagojevich seen as “defying entire America”

  • Lazy Media

    Lyle Menendez, dammit. He’s an exact double.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Srsly, Jim. Why don’t you and Reason go get a room.

  • gliberal

    What? No road kill on his head? What about Davy Crockett?

  • Atoz

    Gillespie is way hotter and infinity times smarter. Just saying.

  • sanantonerose

    WOOF. I bet there is a magnificent veldt of manfur underneath Nick’s black shirt.

  • travellabyrinth

    I think this Blagogagovich person is a Kaufmanesque hoax performed by none other than Chicago’s own Michael Ian Black.


  • Mongo

    [re=197748]L Urchin[/re]: Indeed, isn’t that Javier Bardem?
