Is Mitt Romney a Cylon?

We may need to give this possibility some consideration. Here is what I’ve noticed, thus far:

1. Mitt Romney said “null set” twice last night in the Third Republican Debate, for no apparent reason.

2. His favorite novel is Battlefield Earth.

3. No one person could have so many different positions.

4. Mitt Romney’s father, George Romney, was President of the American Motors Corporation (before running for the Republican Presidential nomination in 1968). AMC was known for its innovations in assembly-line production of compact cars.

5. George Romney, in the same Presidential campaign in 1968, admitted he had been “brainwashed” in a visit to Vietnam.

6. Mitt Romney’s firm, Bain Capital, acquired an interest in Staples.

7. Romney ran for, and was elected, Governor of Massachusetts, even though he was not a legal resident of the state for the required seven years.

8. Battlestar Galactica unexpectedly announced that its next season, the 4th, would be the last. What else could be done, given the outside chance that Romney might be otherwise occupied in 2009?

9. Where do you think Battlestar Galactica got the idea of Baltar as President?

10. Just look at him.

    Mitt looks like the spitting image of Charlton Heston to me.

    I think he’s cute. Actually the most attractive Presidential candidate.

    I lost my crush near stalker obsession with Edwards when I saw the video of him preening in the mirror. YUCK!

    Who cares what Romney believes…. waka waka!! Besides if we are truly honest all and any of the candidates WILL do better than GW maybe not Giuliani….

  • Dr Dreadful

    Rudy and his ill-fitting teeth are certainly the least attractive candidates. Doesn’t seem to slow him down with the girls though.

    Dread and Zedd: my point, precisely…

    It’s a funny article. But, still…a similar satire could be done on pretty much any of the candidates:

    John McCain – The Manchurian Candidate

    Hillary Rodham Clinton – Jaws

    Rudy Giuliani – Dr. Stangelove

    Barack Hussein Obama – The Manchurian Candidate

    John Edwards – Hairspray

    Tom Tancredo – The Birth Of A Nation

    Ron Paul – Mr. Smith Goes To Washington

    Joe Biden – The Tic Code

    Bill Richardson – The Manchurian Candidate

    And even our current President:

    Dubya – Bedtime For Bonzo

    Dick Cheney – The Birdcage

    Well, still on the Cylon theme, I did express my suspicions today Are Brownback, Huckabee, and Tancredo Cylons? … after all, they don’t believe in evolution…

    That’s cute, Zedd. Funny stuff. :-)

    Of course, it’s also pretty solid evidence for repealing the 19th Amendment…but still… ;-P

    Zedd lamented: I lost my crush near stalker obsession with Edwards when I saw the video of him preening in the mirror.

    Dang, Zedd, you know what? – he’s the Cat!!

    You may be on to something. The original Battlestar Galactica was written by a Mormon. The entire idea was based on Mormon theology. Hmmmmmm….but cylons are kind of cool.

  • Nancy

    Isn’t it bad enough we’ve currently got a white house headed by a chimp & Dr. Strangelove, that we need to put in a cylon next? We seem to keep searching for new lows in our leaders ….

    Jason … yeah, someone mentioned that to me on Digg yesterday … chilling… (and you’re right, Cylons can be cool, that’s part of what makes them so dangerous…)

    Nancy – don’t fall into the trap of mixing metaphors (chimp & Strangelove) with what may well be reality – |worried smile|…
