What Does My Favorite TV Drama Have to do With Presidential Elections?

Perhaps a lot, if you read between the lines of Battlestar Galactica scripts, but I am not going that deep. I am just going to quote the following bit, as said by my favorite brilliant disaster, the multitalented, and accidentally sagacious Kara Thrace, aka Starbuck:

Kara: This isn't duelling pistols at dawn. This is war. You never want to fight fair. You want to sneak up behind your enemy and club him over the head. You see, Scar understands that.

Now granted, my girl Starbuck was talking about literal life or death matters, there (although in a fictional world.) But what does that have to do with American Presidential Politics? I will tell you.

Frigging Republicans play presidential politics that hard, as if it were a kill or be killed sort of death match.

I hope there are at least some people high enough up in the Obama campaign to matter who gets that. Elsewise it is going to be Sen. Obama who is gonna get jacked and dropped.

These people might not look as scary as some Cholos, or OG's from the hood, but make no mistake: they be thugs. They might be thugs who quote the bible and wear seersucker suits, and look like the softest weakest tribe on the face of the planet, but in their house? Playing their game, the skankest of Full Contact Political Scumbaggery? They are the Original Gangsta Thugs.

Don't give them kinda bitches an inch. Word.
