Long lost brothers?
|Tortured by||Orcs||Rich people making money|
|Will only be happy when||He gets the Ring thereby assuring that Middle Earth will one day be ruled by Sauron.||He waves goodbye to the Twins thereby assuring that one day we will spend 10 times more to get another team and build a stadium.|
|Talks to himself?||Yes||Probably|
|Dwells in||The wretched bowels of the Misty Mountains||The wretched bowels of the Star Tribune|
|In order to achieve his goals||Bit off a finger to get his precious ring||Would chop off his nose to spite his face if it meant a couple more screeds against billionaire owners|
|Deserves to be shunned by society and cast into the wilderness only to survive by eating raw fish?||Yes||Yes|
So, there you have it. If you can help me think of any other similarities by all means add your own.

Well, young Frodo you will now need to watch your back. You need Cheesehead to step up and be Samwise Gamgee and be on the lookout for "Gollum"!

Ummm, you're Samwise, Brian. I'm Aragorn.

Gollum: Dwelled in the wretched bowels of the Misty Mountains.
Coleman: Dwells in the wretched bowels of the Star Tribune
Gollum: Bit off a finger to get his precious ring.
Coleman: Would chop off his nose to spite his face if it meant a couple more screeds against billionaire owners.
P.S. Can I be Tom Bombadil? Living with Goldberry would be hot.

Nah, I think you're more of an evil wraith but I don't hold that against you CC ;). I suppose you could pass for the gay elf, though. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

I guess I'm Frodo. It is a tough job, but I accept the challenge. All I want to know is who is Arwen?
I've added your additions, freealonzo. Of course, they are perfect!
And Brian, are you calling Legolas "gay"? Not that there is anything wrong with that...

Perhaps, Frodo, you should dig further into Nick's past: did he murder his brother in cold blood while they were out fishing?
I should also mention that good ol'Nick is not a favorite up here at UND, either. He has written a couple of recent columns about how backward and racist we are for not changing the Sioux nickname. Of course, we just think that he's a "city slicker" anyway, and pay him no heed.

Well, since I'm Aragorn, Arwen would have to be Rachel.

Sorry, but you've been linked at a blog that would tend to be anti-stadium. I must confess, I e-mailed your post to my friend, Mike, who forwarded it to Fraters. If there's one thing Minnesota's right-wing/libertarian elite bloggers and the pro-stadium crowd (and probably everyone else) can agree on, it's the stupidity of Nick Coleman.
Watch out - you'll probably be linked at Craig Westover's blog next. He's had multiple wars with Gollum in print and over the air.

Stadium? Enh. We'll sort it out.
The fact is, unity against Nick Coleman is what REALLY needs to unite Minnesotans.
Hey - is that the Brian Maas from Jamestown? JHS'79?

Sorry, boys. The state would do better to unite against NORM Coleman, our eartwhile senatorial lap-dog.
As for Gollum, I think he and GDumbya were separated at birth. Gollum was the smarter sibling -- he sought a ring that actually existed. GDumbya started a dirty little war over WMD that are yet to be found!
