the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Doppelgänger

A few days ago Doug from Laid Off Dad Twittered: “If you saw David Gregory on The Daily Show, you might think that he and @blurb were separated at birth.”

I’m a frequent viewer of NBC news and had never really considered the resemblance between my husband and David Gregory before, but after Doug suggested that I had to take a closer look. And when I did I found myself weirdly attracted to what some have dared called a blustery old douchebag. (I’m looking straight at you, Shan.) I heartily disagree with that assessment, have always thoroughly enjoyed listening to his commentary, and would welcome his correspondence to my white house if you know what I’m saying, not really because I’m happily married, I only said that because now I know Jon’s going to cringe whenever I suggest we watch MSNBC. Meaning, I can totally see the resemblance, especially when you behold his moves here:

Although I think his resemblance to John Larroquette is far more striking. Consider:

But then so many of you have written to ask me if Jon and Jason Lee were separated at birth. Hmm:

I asked Jon whom he thought he resembled most and he waved his hand dismissing all of them, suggesting that if Brad Pitt was not on the list then clearly it was an incomplete list. Right, because if that were true we’d need to add to the list Denzel Washington.

So I’m taking a poll.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging.

That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
