Jack Abramoff = Boris Badenoff

As a rule, I find politics and politicians revolting, so this is as close to a political post as you're likely to see from me.

The guy in the photo to the left is lobbyist Jack Abramoff (whom Vinny introduced you to last week) as he emerged from a courtroom in D.C. after pleading guilty to federal charges of conspiracy, tax evasion and mail fraud arising out of a Capitol Hill influence peddling investigation.

Okay, so what? Well, just one thing--if you were this guy's wife, his lawyer or his PR flack, do you think you'd let him go out of the house dressed like a cartoon supervillain? I mean, the guy's a dead ringer for Boris Badenoff (see below).

At least Boris had Natasha. I think Abramoff will be playing that role in the federal pen.
