Separated at birth: A Tale of Two Stephens

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."
A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.



Senator Stephen Fielding
Comedian Stephen Colbert


One of these men holds right-wing conservatives up to ridicule by adopting fringe political positions and making outlandish statements to great comedic effect.
So does the other, but he is a professional comedian.

One of these men ran for public office and, sadly, failed.
The other ran for public office and, sadly, succeeded.

One of these men wants to ban pornography from all internet-connected PCs (except those situated in Parliament offices).
The other freely admits he "loves cock" and molests young children.

One of these men wears an insouciant, childlike expression that hides an agile, intelligent mind.
The other just wears a vacant, childlike expression that hides nothing deeper than a kiddy's wading pool.

One of these men is brilliant.
The other is a complete cock.

Oh bravo, Boogey, bravo.

What's the thingo thing to show that you're being sincere?

Perseus said...

"The other is a complete cock."

If only for the fact he's wearing a tie with a checked shirt.

What Ramon said. That's a ripper boogey, just what we expect from a queenslander.

Louche said...

I heart you Boogey.

Perseus said...

Tim Ferguson, ex DAAS, also once ran for Parliament and got 7% of the primary vote in the electorate of Kooyong on the policy platform of 'I'm gorgeous'. Given his subsequent work on radio and TV, it was his finest hour (though he was sort of okay on Einstein Factor, sometimes... just needs to cut that hair)

In other news: Gay nazi in lipstick.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I noticed that too, Pers.

I think he's also wearing eye-shadow.

Odd.

Even for a Nazi.

In related US election news, I'll be calling the Presidential election next week, if people are interested.

I now think Obama will win.

Perseus said...

I'm still hoping for a McCain win.

Firstly, because when he dies and Palin becomes President I get to point at America and laugh.

Secondly, there's $2 of my hard earned cash on the line here in my bet with Boogeyman.

Boogeyman said...

I think that gay nazi used to be a Sarah Palin impersonator, judging by the glasses and lipstick.

I now think Obama will win.

Oh, so now you hop on board the winning platform.

The question now is, not whether Obama will win, but by how many Electoral Votes.

RealCelarPolitics already has him over 300 EVs just on solid and leaning states (ie. not including toss-ups).

Perseus, I'm already looking into what stock options I can pick up for $2.

wari lasi said...

The real bet is how long before the dude in the lipstick or one of his mates assassinate Obama.

And I'm not joking, McCain can't win, but that redneck fringe simply won't tolerate a black president.

Unless it's Morgan Freeman of course, he made a really cool president in one of the end of the world movies, can't remember which one.

wari lasi said...

And the lipstick guy's mate's name sounds Jewish. Wouldn't that be a turn up for the books.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

That filum would be Deep Impact, wari.

wari lasi said...

Thanks Ramon, there were two that were incredibly similar that came out at almost the same time.

He's my favourite actor. He was an excellent God, and was outstanding in 7, and everything else he's been in.

Excellent Ramon, I couldn't think of any other way to keep up to date. *

As we've got the American cable TV here all of the coverage will be overwhelming. Considering the number of local West Indian neighbours who have parties planned for Tuesday night means we're going to awake all night with them rejoicing/commiserating.

*NB This is genuine. I am not being sarcastic .. I followed the Aust Federal election via The Hangover.

Was the other one the Affeck nightmare ..not Pearl Harbour..


Armagedden?

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

He was also excellent in Glory, wari.

wari lasi said...

I think you're right there homesick. Which one had Bruce Willis in it?

Ramon he's great in everything. I saw him in a weird one the other day on Cinemax where he plays an actor and picks up this Spanish check-out chick, I think it was called 8 items or less, or something.

Mr E Discharge said...

Perseus, I'm already looking into what stock options I can pick up for $2.

If McCain gets elected, BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto would be my pick.

Boogeyman said...

If I put that $2 on McCain to win and he actually does, I can retire on the winnings.

Mr E Discharge said...

I'm still hoping for a McCain win.

As are Rupert Murdock and Al-Qaeda.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I don't think Uncle Rupes really gives a fuck who wins, Mr E.

As long as he can continue to make shitloads of dosh.

catlick said...

"Both individuals stated they would dress in all white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt,'' the court complaint states."

"I'm, putting on my top hat,
Putting on my white tie,
Polishing my nails.
I'm stepping out my dear
Into an atmosphere
That's simply reeks of blacks
And I trust you will excuse my rush,
when I get out the gats."

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Well, I for one am glad that we're now seeing a better dressed version of murderous lunatic.

Melba said...

Boogeyman, forget stock. You could pick up a couple of houses in Detroit for 2 bucks.

patchouligirl said...

he's great in everything I thought the bucket list was pretty lame and unfortunately that included Morgan Freeman. If we're talking American president why not Denzel Washington?

WitchOne said...

The only good thing about The Bucket List was the way Freeman and Nicholson bounced off each other. The story was a great concept but badly carried out by the director.

Anyone seen the EYE? Not Freeman related but great nonetheless.

Louche said...

Did anyone see the Louis Theroux documentary on neo-nazis? There was an old fat skinhead who insisted he was better looking than Denzel Washington.

shitbmxrider said...

Louche: I saw that, twas facinating...


He was really convinced, eh! Also, the way he treated his 'friend' was shocking
