First things first: it’s unlikely that anyone would mix up the two Crowleys based on their politics. Monica Crowley is a Fox News contributor, radio host and self-described “happy warrior.” CNN’s Candy Crowley, you might remember, was most recently seen tag-teaming with the president against Mitt Romney during last night’s debate, helpfully “fact-checking” for President Boyfriend when truths got inconvenient.
Even before the debate, Monica was aware of the potential for confusion.
To answer the most frequently asked question of me today: am I related to CNN’s Candy Crowley? No. No. No, I am not.

Only three no’s? Are you sure you’re not related?
Ok, guys—I’ve got to run and get ready to moderate this debate. Oh, wait. #WrongCrowley

But the resemblance is uncanny! Here’s a handy photo reference courtesy of Twitchy to tape up next to your TV. We’d never be so shallow as to judge by appearances, but we can’t stop you from doing so, can we?
Has anyone but me spent time considering the obviousness of our Crowley (Monica), vs. their Crowley (uhm… )Petty.I know.Moving on.

The Democrats are very fond of arithmetic lately, so here’s a simple equation to keep things straight.
Monica Crowley > Candy Crowley

Now that we know which Crowley is which, is there any chance of switching things up next time there’s a debate?
