I'm blending the frivolous with the political for this post, I'll admit. There is no redeeming value here, only the snark. But as a graphic artist, I notice similarities, and also how (as Sesame Street used to sing) "one of these things is not like the other."
There is no denying that Fred Dalton Thompson is something other than a raving beauty. If that Kennedy/Nixon debate thing is a measure, then if Fred gets the nom, the Democrat is a shoo-in. As noted earlier in my direct steal from AmericaBlog.com, Fred looks like the villains in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode, "Hush."
But I started to notice other similarities to other horror icons. Take a look. We have Vigo from Ghostbusters II, the villain from BTVS' "Hush," the Tall Man from Phantasm, the creepy preacher from Poltergeist II, Fred Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street and Fred Dalton Thompson. Can you match the name to the face?
