Is The ‘Real’ Rod Blagojevich This Libertarian Pamphlet Editor?

by Jim Newell

We have been looking far and wide for the ultimate Blago doppelganger and here he is: the famous local zombie editor of Reason, Nick Gillespie. Or is Gillespie just too cool? [Jerry Brito via The Corner]

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

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

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.

Nick has (better) lips.

Reason is soooo your imaginary boyfriend, Jim.

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

jetjaguar December 12, 2008 at 4:01 pm

Blago’s sideburns are a cry for help…

L Urchin December 12, 2008 at 4:02 pm

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

George Stephanopoulos wants his pelt back, god damnit!

FreshCliches December 12, 2008 at 4:04 pm

Christ, just about anyone from The Dave Clark Five.

kmarie08wj December 12, 2008 at 4:07 pm

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

One Yield Regular December 12, 2008 at 4:07 pm

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

OffTheRecord December 12, 2008 at 4:11 pm

[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 December 12, 2008 at 4:13 pm

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

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…

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 December 12, 2008 at 4:26 pm

[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)

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

[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? December 12, 2008 at 6:02 pm

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

Barrett808 December 12, 2008 at 6:48 pm

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

Lazy Media December 12, 2008 at 7:15 pm

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

Lascauxcaveman December 12, 2008 at 7:41 pm

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

gliberal December 12, 2008 at 7:56 pm

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

Atoz December 12, 2008 at 8:25 pm

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

sanantonerose December 12, 2008 at 10:46 pm

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

travellabyrinth December 13, 2008 at 4:01 pm

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

Mongo December 15, 2008 at 10:20 am

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