Is Ron Paul Magneto in Disguise?


I'm probably not the first to notice this, but I haven't seen any speculation out there. Ron Paul looks an awful lot like Ian McKellen. Part the hair a little differently, and he's a dead ringer for Magneto. I'm sure if you stuck him in a fake beard and a pointy gray hat, he'd look like Gandalf.

As someone who has been searching Ron Paul news regularly for a while now, this is the first post I have seen to make the connection. I had never thought of it but those pictures do make it seem so...

By the way.. ever seen the Scarlet Pimpernel? I think it's a great movie, and Ian McKellen was the bad guy in it too - he hasn't changed all that much in 25 years or so :)

I noticed the same thing and had a hard time sleeping that night because every time I'd start to doze off my mind would wander back and i'd be set off giggling again. So I photoshopped a ron paul revolution logo on a pic of magneto in full dress (the helmet helps further) and stuck it on my site.

How funny! I thought of Ian McKellen the first time I saw a picture of Ron Paul, and just out of curiosity, I googled both of their names together and got this site. I too had thought there would've been more comments on the similarity. Haha. Well, if only for making a dead-on Gandalf, RP has my vote!

Damn straight, since the first time that I saw Ron, I said the same thing, COME ON! THAT’S MAGNETO!!!!....jajajaja. I'm watching the news today and that thought struck me back, therefore I goggled both names and here I am; as you said, the match is almost creepy.

Same here, I made this connection last week and googled it and I ended up here.

This has been a while too... but Senator Leiberman looks like Senator Palpatine..

So my question is if 2 of our representatives in congress resemble evil villains, what about the rest of them?

Benny said...

Yes, Paul looks like McKellen who in turn also looks like John Hurt. Also, someone mentioned Lieberman looking like Palatine, I have also noticed that, he looks like the younger Palatine, while Pope Benedict looks like the old Palatine.

Hilarious! He does look very much like Ian McKellen at that. Magneto for President! Maybe he could magnetize our money to keep Obama from sending it to other countries.
