No Erik, I’m Not Out Of Blogging Ideas

Yesterday, a friend of mine sent me the following short note:

Hi Frank,

Thought of you and your BSG predilection when I saw this
online (and certainly most scientific) survey.

Not to play the spoiler, but here are current results as of ~9:00AM this morning.

Who played the best President in crisis?

16% Harrison Ford as President James Marshall in Air Force One

15% Bill Pullman as President Thomas J. Whitmore in Independence Day

5% Morgan Freeman as President Tom Beck in Deep Impact

5% Peter Sellers as President Merkin Muffley in Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

37% Mary McDonnell as President Laura Roslin in Battlestar Galactica

17% Dennis Haysbert as President David Palmer in 24

5% Jack Nicholson as President James Dale in Mars Attacks!

Think Pres. Roslin is available?


Erik, one could only hope! I’m just amazed watching McCain run as a republican without the core values and issues that one would normally expect from his party. The idea that he needs Palin to get anybody excited speaks volumes. I’d be willing to bet that a lot of folks are going to be wishing that they picked the son of Kobol in the primaries in, uh, about three weeks.

I know there are many that say that at least McCain will pick decent judges. From his performance over the last year; I seriously doubt that would be the case.

Me? Well, I’m sticking with the Roslin/Airlock ticket. However, if I really get in one of my moods I’ll vote for Zod.

When does the Mayan calendar end? 2012 is it? 2012 can not arrive quick enough!


You know what's funny about that whole 2012 theory? Odds are they picked that date to end the calendar because the Mayans ran out of rock to carve it on.

Love it.

Right now I'm wishing that they had fewer rocks...

Roslin/Airlock...not mavericky enough. I ask you, my friends, when the Cylons attacked, did Roslin make any effort to reach across the aisle and work with Vice Presidential hopeful, Tom Zarek? So, perhaps he wanted to assassinate her...MAYBE! Do you really want a leader, who in the face of being snuffed out by a political rival can't be nice??? What we need in these hard times are people who think bipartisanship is an initiative; not a result. I say to you, America, the firm resolve of Laura Roslin isn't representative of the country I love. Kumbaya...and don't you forget it.

John McCain

John, may I call you John? In these difficult and uncertain times the last thing we need is to play guessing games as to where our elected representative’s loyalties lie. If I’m elected, that box you spent five years in; it WILL look like the Hilton compared to the airlock I’ll jettison you out of. You know what jettison means don’t you John?

Laura Roslin


(Fingers in ears) LALALALALALALALLALALALA!!! I can't hear you!

"The sky is blue, the grass is green. The sky is blue, the grass is green..."

John McCain
