Separated at Birth: Rick Scott and Mr. Burns?

The Orlando Sentinel's blog writers are having a little fun at Rick Scott's expense.  I've previously compared him to Voldemort, and Peter at SaintPetersblog has called him Skeletor, but I have to admit that the Sentinel's analogy to Mr. Burns from the Simpsons is pretty darn funny - plus the added professional similarities:

We can’t be the first to note this, but Rick Scott has a Montgomery Burns thing going on. Yes, Mr. Burns from The Simpsons.

They’re both crazy wealthy. They’re both conservative. They’re both political outsiders. They both have — or had — businesses that ran afoul of the law. And, let’s be honest, they kind of look alike.

And Simpsons fans will remember that back in the day — 1990 — Burns ran for governor in the classic episode “Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish.” He lost.
What do you think?
