MorphWorld: Ned Lamont into Cliff Robertson

Uoiuoiuio

Whoa, said I when I opened my Washington Post yesterday only to espy, on the front page of the Style section accompanying a story about Ned Lamont, the photo above.

Lamont is currently making Senator Joseph Lieberman sweat a lot as they count down the days until next Tuesday's (August 8) Democratic Senate primary in Connecticut.

I thought for a second I'd gone back in time and Cliff Robertson (below, as JFK in "PT-109")

had been Photoshopped into the picture in what would have been one impressive hack.

But no, it's Lamont.

Huh.

Never hurts to resemble a handsome movie star — even if for most voters the similarity is only subliminal — rather than a bad bobblehead doll.

An aside: buy or rent the 1968 movie "Charly," starring Robertson and based on Daniel Keyes's Hugo and Nebula Award-winning, heartbreaking and wonderful 1959 short story, "Flowers For Algernon."

Both movie and story are just superb.
