Paul Ryan's Halloween costume: Kevin Rose circa 2006

Time's photos of vice president hopeful Paul Ryan bear a striking resemblance to the BusinessWeek's 2006 cover of Digg cofounder Kevin Rose.


  1. I don’t see it. One looks like a self-satisfied frat-boy douche, the other looks like Kevin Rose.

    1.  He also bears a striking resemblance to “Goober Pyle” on Mayberry RFD. Not exactly instilling intelligence and confidence in his leadership.

  2. It looks like either one could break out into bad upper-class-white-boy-freestyle-rap given the slightest provocation.

  3. Does he not get how Halloween works?  That’s like a real Firefighter cheating and wearing his/her turnouts to a party.  Maybe he should have dressed as a giant Skeptic magazine.

  4. No costume required, the fact that this fundamentalist nightmare holds any kind of public office is frightening enough.. He should stick to the suit..its scary enough.

  5. This picture of Ryan scares the living hell out of me. It looks like he is in one of those switch movies where the son becomes the dad and the dad becomes the son.

  6. I’m not seeing the Kevin Rose resemblance, but wow – that TIME article sounds like it was drummed by an intern at Cosmo: “Confusing the electorate is unwise, but according to Horton, confusing the muscles is a plus”
