Journalists At Work!

Earlier today at the Rayburn House Office building, a "mob of reporters" surrounded this man and began peppering him with questions, thinking he was this guy.

The guy pictured is the president of the Georgia Farm Bureau, and his real actual not-pretend name seems to be "Zippy Duvall." The guy he was mistaken for is, obviously, AIG Chairman Edward Liddy, who looks, it cannot be stressed enough, absolutely nothing like Duvall.

"Are you ready for this hearing?" somebody shouted.

"Do you think they're going to treat you fairly?"

Duvall stopped to chat amiably with the mob of reporters. "If I knew I was going to get all this attention, I'd have gotten my hair cut," said the farm bureau president, who is almost completely bald.

As the questions continued to fly, one of Duvall's farm-bureau colleagues shared a thought with his suddenly-popular boss: "I think they think you're somebody else."

It's like a screwball comedy, right? Then all the reporters mistook a billionaire for a poor vagrant and invited him to be their butler, whereupon he taught them all important lessons in life.
