Click to viewMany people have noticed the resemblance between Republican presidential candidate John McCain and Col. Saul Tigh, the one-eyed grizzled war veteran (who is secretly a robot) on post-apocalyptic soap opera Battlestar Galactica. But according to the New York Times, McCain isn't just Tigh — he's BSG itself. The whole show. Says Times reporter Alessandra Stanley, McCain has reinvented himself from his 2000 "anti-establishment maverick" version, just the same way BSG has revolutionized the campy 1978 original. (Tortured metaphor much?) But one thing confuses us: the new McCain is more religious and conservative. Is Stanley saying the new BSG is more right-wing and religious as well? Image from GreyFade.
