Separated at Birth? Pelosi/Jackson

Someone please find comperable pictures of Nancy Pelosi and Michael Jackson- the hair, eyes, and noses are very similar. Their plastic faces, surreal demeanors... this has possibilities.

Update: I was not the first on this, see:

My Cynicsim re Social Security reforms

It occurs to me that while President Bush sincerely wants to reform Social Security, the thinking of Carl Rove type pragmatists may well be content to string this out as an issue because of its strong appeal to younger voters. I think Bush does a good job reassuring the 50+ crowd, while many younger people will be strongly influenced by the privitization concept.

Many wonder if cynical democrats never wanted to actually cure poverty or racism because it would deny them a powerful lever... along this same line there may be differences amongst conservatives in how quickly we really want to get this done.
