Timwatch 10/1

So over the weekend Tim had Pervez Musharraf, which I didn't pay that much attention to (seriously, dude is being interviewed everywhere and I'm bored with him). Then was the Senate debate series, this time Ohio, with Mike Dewine and Sherrod Brown. I wanted to pay attention but I was distracted by Dewine's face. He has that frog-face quality that seems common in certain Republican politicians (see Al D'Amato for the best example). And I was distracted because his particular facial froggishness was reminding me of someone that I just couldn't put my finger on.

Senator Dewine:

After a lot of Google Image-ing, I figured it out:

For those of you who don't know, that is Doc from Buffy. Not only is he a demon, he has a tail. Yeah, he's a little older than Dewine but I think we all know that's exactly what Dewine will look like in about ten years.

So you heard it here first, kids: Senator Mike Dewine is, in fact, a demon. And he has eight kids, who may or may not also have tails. Who needs to pay attention to his actual wrong-headed policy notions when he is obviously evil? Though if you really need a good reason to vote for Brown over Dewine, Brown voted against the PATRIOT act. And he does not seem to be a demon follower of Glorificus.

Why yes, the Buffy DVDs are in my netflix queue because I've been wanting a Buffy refresher. That has nothing to do with anything!

When I lived in Ohio I had the good fortune of being in Sherrod's district. I sort of still have a nerdy crush on him.

I have to confess: I f*cked up. I sat next to Timmeh at the "O-zone" in Logan airport. I even had a few words with him. The other guy sitting next to me got his autograph....

A little while after he and I had paid up and left the bar, I remembered crap, I shoulda gotten one of those for neurochic so I tried running after him, but couldn't find him.

Sorry. I did almost miss my plane for that failed attempt at an autograph, though. Does that count for something?

The upshot is that his son attends Boston College so it's possible I might see him again someday waiting for our flights at the O-zone. One can always hope.

Must confess, when I saw that first picture, Doc was the first thing I thought of, even before the scroll-down.
