I’m sure you also enjoyed the fairly recent “celebrity doppelganger” profile picture trend, which involved users posting photographs of stars they’ve been told they resemble.

In case you missed last night’s Republican debate (which would be sad because it was highly entertaining), and feel left out because you were watching reruns of The Big Bang Theory instead of listening to the Gingrich-Santorum birth control craziness, here’s a video of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand on this morning’s episode of MSNBC’s Morning Joe to fill you in.
