    It’s funny because they’re both crooks. 🙂

    David Brauer, I salute you sir.

    How old is Par Ridder? A Google search didn’t help, but he looks significantly younger than Rob Blagojevich’s 52 years.

    I’m working on a theory that guys who retain preternatural full heads of hair into middle age have a higher incidence of being cons, crooks and cads. Blago fits the mold perfectly. Maybe Ridder will grow into it.

    What’s it say about these guys that they’re both trying to cover up their foreheads? Is this a hair-based strategy for keeping out FBI telepaths?

    Although they don’t look much alike, I submit Al Franken as Blago’s SAB sibling due to the similarities of their work related compensation packages.

    Children’s charities got shaken down to pay them both.
