More Evidence That I am the Shallowest Blogger on the Left

I'm watching a CSPAN discussion about the Afghan insurgency, and one of the better talking heads is this guy Amin Tarzi from Radio Free Europe. He's articulate and friendly, seems to have a lot of expertise, and generally makes really good points.

However, he looks exactly like my most recent roommate, and as a result I find myself irrationally loathing him.

To compound the shallowness, the reason he looks like my last roommate is that both of them have reconstructed cleft palates. So basically I am indulging in bigotry. Yes, people with reconstructed cleft palates have very distinct noses and lips, so they really do resemble each other, but I don't know if that makes it more or less despicable that I hate this man because all I see is my douchebag ex-roommate's face on CSPAN.

He's discussing the intricacies of Pashmin squabbles, and all I can think is "how fucking dare you throw 4 am drug parties without asking me, and do you really think I want to dispose of the bloodied tissues you leave around the living room after your pathetic coke binges? And would it kill you to do the dishes?"

    For me, the worst part about bad roomates, and C-span look-alikes, is that I end up convinced that I have all the nasty traits that I hate about them. Bastards bring out the self-laothing Jew in me....
    don't feel bad, solomon and thanks for sharing.
