Quick admission

I really have no time this morning. I can't whine though because I'm starving for money, as it's taken longer than expected to get going this session. It looks like I'll be teaching very early tues through fri mornings now, and getting home late in the evening. That's fine, I'll just write smaller posts like I do come every October.

Here's what I'd like to know today. Am I a bad person that every time I see Obama on television, I'm reminded of Tuvok on Start Trek Voyager (Tim Russ)? I know that they probably don't really look too much alike, but there's something similar that I can't put my finger on. Delivery? Facial structure? Anyway, I keep imagining him with Vulcan ears and then it's hard to pay attention to what he's saying.

Striking resemblance.

The haircuts are close. Along with new ears, reshape Obama's eyebrows a bit and the makeover is complete!

Maybe Obama was on Star Trek Voyager, he is capable of doing several things at once unlike McBush. ed

I have no problems with a Vulcan in the White House. Beats the hell out of a troglodyte.

Live long and prosper my dear fellow Americans.

Here... does this help?

Doug said...

No, you're not a bad person. In fact, I think you're on to something there. It might be nice to have some logic in government.

Polt said...

I think there could be a resemblence between Obana and Tuvok. Personally, I think Bush looks like a Ferengi...with hair. And smaller lobes.

HUGS...

RJ March said...

Ha-ha... yes, you are bad-- bad and smart and funny.

Greg said...

Vulcan ears might be an improvement. Logic in the White House, even more so!

Phronk said...

Hey guys...the resemblance is that they're BOTH BLACK.

Jokes, jokes. I do see it a bit. Obama can be a bit vulcan-like when he talks, which is a good thing. Better than Bush talking like a...I dunno...were there any non-intelligent species in Star Trek?

Birdie said...

Yes, you are bad because now I can't look at Obama without thinking of Tuvok. Shame on you. (So who's his running mate?)

dr. mo said...

They do kinda look alike; not sure they sound the same, though, except for the logic component others have noted.

So I don't think this makes you a bad person, but it does out you as a nerd; I guess the "disguise" from yesterday's post is your true self then:))

Patricia said...

You have a "Dr. Mo" as a commenter.

That freaks me right the hell out.

Errr, sorry, I was supposed to comment on your post.

Roxrocks said...

You are a closeted Trekkie? And I thought I knew you!

franck said...

Poor you, having to get up ridiculously early four days a week. That's no fun

Java said...

What an interesting psychological phenomenon.

Cameron said...

That's how I feel about Sarah Palin and Tina Fey -- Tina is a dead-ringer for Sarah and the first thing I thought when seeing Sarah was, "Tina Fey should play her on Saturday Night Live".

And VOILA! It happened!

The Neighbors Will Hear said...

You know, I never saw the resemblance, but now that you point it out, well, I still don't see it. Maybe if you could get Obama into the uniform.

David said...

If he is a closet Trekkie, I can see why he never mentioned it. Voyager sucked.

Fatinah said...

by the title, I thought you were going to say you were smoking!

As for Obama & Tuvok...maybe if you squint...

David said...

Obama is so hot in the picture.

Frank B said...

Let's see, cool, rational, an aversion to untruth.... yes very similar.

johnny368 said...

Logical conclusion...(there is a .8 resemblance there) Anyway, they are both enigmatic and intelligent.

:)

Cincy Diva said...

sounds sexual to me LOL

travelling, but not in love said...

I think this does indeed make you a bad person. And thank goodness for that!

Mark in DE said...

OMG, you're right! (giggles)

Mark :-)

Lyvvie said...

I think it's the deep, clear voice that's making the connection.

Sarah Palin has the pointy ears.
