NOTES: A couple quick notes…I have another 20 minute or so of suff. Because of the time limits on YouTube (and Google doesn’t seem to be liking me) I think I’m going to shoot for a 20 minute limit next week. This was more of a proof-of-concept. Let me know what you think. If you absolutely have to see the rest, let me know and I’ll throw it up.   I should also have a much quicker turnaround next week, as my editing skillz just about doubled this last week.

McCain / Palin = Tigh / Roslin

McCain / Palin = Tigh / Roslin

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,
