McCain / Palin = Tigh / Roslin

For those of you that didn’t follow it, Battlestar Gallactica was an excellent television program. From what I understand there is still one official episode for the series yet to be aired, but the current “end” of the series was something of a downer. A poster on Fark nailed down the plot precisely, which when compared to picture above, caused a bit of the ole’ lol.

So McCain’s a drunken Cyclon and former terrorist who killed his first wife, and Palin’s a religious whack-job on hallucinogens and is dying of cancer? Keep in mind that Roslin led her people to a dead planet that is a smoking ash from nuclear war too…

And that’s pretty much how the show ended. And is a bit more evidence for the argument that this election is becoming a joke of epic proportions. The fact that I’m watching Joe Lieberman at the RNC just adds to the hilarity.
UPDATE: bOING bOING has more on this.  It looks like the conspiracy extends further that I first realized.
But not only that, they even have a campaign website.   The similarities are eerie.

Tigh doesn’t know how many homes he owns?
Fleet shocked that people own homes.

The opposition has jumped at the opportunity to portray Colonel Tigh as elitist as he stumbled in a recent interview to answer the question on how many homes does he own. The question came out of nowhere, specifically since no one actually owns a home in the Fleet and most people sleep crammed in ship hangers or multiple people to a room. Still the Colonel could not answer the question.

And…

Laura Roslin Responds to “Beauty Queen” Comments

Twenty years ago, candidate Laura Roslin won Miss Congeniality and Most Likely to Airlock a Cylon while a contestant in the Miss Caprica City Pageant. Ms. Roslin’s critics look to her days as a pageant participant negatively, citing it as just another reason why she is unqualified to serve as Colonel Tigh’s running mate.

Great stuff.  Good jorb,

  1. It’s easy to get fired up over the McCain, Palin ticket. I can’t say enough about Sarah Palin. I liken her detractors to skaters who go down hard; legs akimbo, that look of disbelief. Again, we’re seeing them fold like lawn chairs. It’s long overdue. Anyway, here’s a clip from Jan & Dean. I found it apropos. Bet you can’t watch just once: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX7X4FovYRA&NR=1 And how ‘bout them Dems: lost in space, or true tales from the Pork-master General: http://theseedsof9-11.com

  2. I think most of her detractors are going down laughing and shaking their heads in disbelief.

    The only thing I’ve seen folding like lawn chairs are the tall tales Palin has been telling about the bridge and the plane. So far none of her stories check out, except the woman thing.

    It’s been hilarious. Much like that…video…you posted.

  3. The “jet” was ACTUALLY placed on ebay for bid.

    Take it from a fellow Alaskan.

    The like-nes to the characters of the sci-fi world of “Battlestar Galactica” are amazing to say the least.

    I favor no political party — but I see a fellow “Alaskan” being trashed based on faulty and incomplete information.

    I felt compelled to respond.

    She might just be the “dying leader” that leads us all to our doom as in the BSG universe.

    But she is still one of a very few, and a few whom I defend virulently.

    DaDornta has spoken.

  4. The jet didn’t sell on eBay. Four times. To keep saying it did, like it was some amazing new policy, is silly.

    Now, since you want to defend her, I’m all ears.

    Can you, or anyone else, please explain to me some concrete example that Gov. Palin has any idea what the heck is going on in the world outside the borders of Alaska. I’m talking about domestic and international policy. I’ve yet to see anything that gives me any sense she has any ideas that don’t involve Alaska.

    Everytime that question is put to McCain/Palin campaign people, they attack Obama. Now that it has been made clear that Palin won’t be talking to the evil media, it seems they feel she is above reproach on these topics.

    Please explain to me why that is.

  5. “Are you saying you think Americans are better than other nations?”
    –Judy Woodruff, 09-11-08

    OMG! They’re back. I no sooner reported The Democratic National Committee consigned to the dumper, than it popped up again at the 9-11 Forum On Public Service & Civic Engagement. Held at Columbia University, “impartial moderators” Richard Stengel, managing editor of TIME along with PBS NewsHour Senior Correspondent and Political Editor Judy Woodruff, moderated the forum staged by Service Nation, “a new nationwide coalition.” While no relation to journalist Bob Woodruff, Judy is married to Al Hunt executive editor of The Bloomberg News, DC, bureau. Bloomberg also reported that, “she [Sarah Palin] was arrested 22 years ago on a drunken-driving charge.” The next day, Judy Woodruff reflected on the experience with NewsHour’s Steve Goldbloom. Judy, who espouses a civilian counterpart to the military conceded that while 9-11 might not have been the most auspicious date, the candidates stayed true to the service mission, as if John McCain were somehow onboard with a civilian mission with military authority. Anyway, The DNC reemerged as The [International] Provisional People’s Collective Party, or PCP. And, guess what the PCP has in store for America: Political Officers, Commissars. The title Commissar refers to either a People’s Commissar (government), or a Political Commissar (military). In the Soviet Union, the Institute of Political Commissars was established to control the military. The state security organizations, KGB, etc., and or People’s Commissars also controlled the Soviet Army, together with the entire Soviet State. Compulsory Public Service is the future. All men will be judged politically; anti-Marxist sentiment shall be crushed. But we first require a state organ with which to train the political functionaries who will hold coequal rank and authority. And although they never mention it at the forum, welcome comrade to Hillary’s National Public Service Academy: http://theseedsof9-11.com
