Puzzle Time: One of These Things is Not Like the Others



Yesterday on NBC, Blago said he “thought about Mandela, Dr. King and Gandhi and tried to put some perspective to all this.”

To be fair, perhaps he meant that he thought about them and about how totally different he is in every conceivable way.

And it ain't just the 'do either.

Your last post caused me to write a ponderous post about inner change.

Somehow that works for this one too I think.

Here's what Blago thought in more detail:

Nelson Mandela: "Nah, I got a lot more hair than him."
Dr. King: "I totally got better hair than him."
Ghandi: "Holy fuck, man, that dude is balder than a billiard ball."

I hope they decide to go old-school on him and put him in front of a firing squad, just for this ludicrous comparison.

Did you see Maureen Dowd's column on Blago yesterday? Hilarious!

HRH King Friday XIII, Ret. said...

Ummm yeah.... I don't think anyone ever says "What would Blago do?"

Celia said...

Perhaps he simply meant that there are people who have been involved with politics who have suffered more than he has, and that even though it sucks to have everyone laughing at you and your hair, it's nothing to what those three men saw.

Of course, this doesn't allow for the fact that he's completely mad, so I don't claim to be the last word either.

That hair should be covered up in public, lest it scare the elderly, infirm, and/or children.

It scares me, and I'm none of those things.

Princess never disappoints.

I read the critical quote on CNN.com just now, and immediately thought "WWPSPD"? So I came here to find out. Beautiful collage.

Three out of four has a tan?

Blago's 'do is so... improbable... it looks like a Photoshop job.

Jess Wundrun said...

You know, now that HRH King Friday has mentioned it, I do think I will ask myself in the future "What Would Blago Do?".

Starting at the bottom seems pretty damned good for a chronic underachiever like me!

TRex said...

He should be in entertainment with hair like that. And black ;)

daveawayfromhome said...

I'm with Lulu Maude, it looks like a really good photoshop job. Or a turban. Why would anyone even vote for a guy with hair like that? If that's a sample of his capacity for judgement...

Fran said...

Blago is in full delusion. If IMpeached and charged with a federal offense, they might shave that doo & he will be looking like....one of Santa's elves?
A yard gnome?
Blago would have us all believe he is a visionary leader.
His infamous quote would be
'this thing is fuckin' golden- give my wife a cushy job, or pay me a shitload"

Not quite the *I have a Dream* caliber of speeches, Eh?

FranIAm said...

Aha! Only Blago has been on The View!

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Lulu: it's a Photoshop job. I increased the hairdo's mass by a good 40%.

Karen Zipdrive said...

Lulu, honey, you thought that was really his hair?
I think the cheese may be slippin' off your cracker, dear.

Chris said...

Re: The Hair-

I don't know whether it's more frightening that the 'shop is actually believable, or the fact that it's only a 40% increase in mass.

Expect more Chicago-style eruptions in the next 4 years. You can take the man out of Chicago, but you can't take the Chicago out of the man. And the Obamessiah is from Chicago.

Leo, you have not only impugned the honor of me and three million fellow Chicagoans (we are not all crooks, nor do we all have poofy hair) -- but you're not being funny!
