Please, please, please... whatever you do, don't nominate Vigo the Carpathian...
Vigo the Destroyer...
Vigo the Cruel...
Vigo the Torturer...
Vigo the Actor Named Fred Thompson... for president.
Yeah, I know Thompson didn't really play Vigo in Ghostbusters II. That was the late actor Wilhelm von Homburg. But every single time I see good ol' Freddie boy and hear his frighteningly right wing plans for America, Vigo is the first thing that comes to mind.
The resemblance is uncanny, no?
Thompson is so conservative, he makes a burqa seem fashion forward. If elected, he will do his utmost to make abortion illegal and push for a constitutional amendment to keep states from having to recognize other states' gay marriages. Jackass.
You know what troubles me? The possibility that millions of TNT-rerun-addicted Americans will see his face and think, "Wow. He's the District Attorney on Law & Order. He will protect us and take care of us and love us and tuck us in at night." I worry about this because we're the same country that loves Paris Fucking Hilton and American Idol and elected George Bush. A second time.
This shit keeps me awake at night.
Where are Egon, Ray, and Peter Venkman when you need them? Seriously, there must be some sort of containment unit to keep the ever-creeping fascism and brain-sucked apathy from taking over.
