Pareene’s Porn Star Look

If you haven’t seen the MSNBC appearance of Salon‘s hot Hack List creator Alex Pareene it’s a must see, if only to catch a glimpse of his mustachioed look that looks so odd that it’s easy to imagine him gluing it on before the show. With Norah O’Donnell in the anchor chair, she welcomes Pareene on the show to discuss why people are buying former President George Bush‘s memoir. There are endless descriptions of Pareene’s look, but those that jump to mind — fresh off the set of a 70s porn film, or, as one journo put it, “Perhaps he looks like the son of the guy in those 70s Doritos commercials.” See here for a refresher. The Daily Caller‘s Jim Treacher took a few cracks at the Mediaite video on his blog, The Daily Trawler.

Treach writes, “That’s Norah O’Donnell with the shiny jacket, and aspiring writer Alex Pareene with the mustache and manly voith. In Pareene’s defense, he seems to realize that what he’s saying is very stupid and he kinda sorta doesn’t mean it probably. And yes, that’s a fairly accurate description of Pareene’s career so far.”
