the other night in grand rapids, i was chillin’ in my hotel room trying to get sleepy (time change and all), and i surfed onto the colbert report. dr. cornel west, multi-talented radical philosphy professor at princeton (also rapper and author and speaker and pot-stirrer) was the interview. really interesting, mostly because the dude is so pickin’ animated and quirky. really fun to watch.
anyhow, i’m watching west, and his distinctive look and mannerisms; and suddenly it strikes me: he and crowder look like each other! yeah, i know — that’s weird. but, seriously, they do. especially when you watch the interview and see his mannerisms.
so, i now posit to you, faithful (or occasional) reader of ysmarko: dr. cornel west and david crowder, twins separated at birth. or, since crowder is so much younger, maybe it’s david crowder: cornel west’s secret love child (ooh, the scandal!). see for yourself:
