Separated at Birth or Same Plastic Surgeon?

As I have said before, I'm kinda busy during the week now, so just time for a quick speculation.

Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi doesn't make the news much, but the recent pictures made me think he has to be put on the Rourke Rubber Mask scale, a completely subjective measure I invented to say how far someone is from looking like Mickey Rourke.

I am not the first person to notice this. The "totally looks like" picture is at least a year and a half old, so it's possible both of them look even worse today.

I'd say Gadhafi is about at .85 RRM to .90 RRM, which means Mickey Rourke is still marginally uglier than Qaddafi.

In Mickey's favor, everyone agrees on how to spell his name. (Three spellings taken from Huffington Post, Talking Points Memo and CNN.)

Heh heh heh. Good one, Matty Boy! Much better that Bachmann/Batboy Overdrive

Those are both scary looking guys but Gadhafi is scary in real life. Mickey - oh lord what a mess!

Oh man, that's it! I was looking at pictures of him only moments ago, trying to figure out who the hell he looked like -- Carlos Santana? a bad wrestler from the 70s? James Brown on a bad bad day? But you nailed it. BTW, I linked to The Other Blog on that very post. It's at the impeachment bloggy.
