Note: I posted this poll a couple of months ago, but with today's lame Birther "joke" by Romney, I figured it was a good time to repost it.

OK, take a good, long look at this political cartoon first:

(This is cropped from the full version)

Got that in your head? OK, now, answer the question (and yes, the character is still a Blonde '80's Asshole even in the couple of movies that weren't actually made in the '80's):

Is he Robert Prescott as Kent in "Real Genius"?

Is he Robert Prescott (again!) as Cole Whittier in "Bachelor Party"?

Is he James Spader as Steff McKee in "Pretty in Pink"?

Is he Ted McGinley as Stan Gable in "Revenge of the Nerds"?

Is he Aaron Dozier as Roy Stalin in "Better Off Dead"?

Is he Dylan Kussman as Richard Cameron in "Dead Poets Society"?

Is he Matt Damon as Charlie Dillon in "School Ties"?

Is he William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence in "The Karate Kid"...

...OR William Zabka (again!) as Greg Tolan in "Just One of the Guys"...

...OR William Zabka (yet again!!) as as Chas Osborne in "Back to School"???

Perhaps he's David Spade as Rand McPherson in "PCU"?

...or, as others have suggested, James Daughton as Greg Marmalard in "Animal House

...or, finally, Craig Sheffer as Hardy Jenns in Some Kind of Wonderful?

BONUS! For those who are old enough to remember all of these films, here's a gem--an awesome music video starring and directed by the King of '80's Blond Movie Assholes himself, William Zabka, that somehow manages to merge The Karate Kid, Raising Arizona and a Cars video together:


(watch the whole thing for a great cameo at the end!)

Which '80's Movie Blonde Asshole is Mitt Romney?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
