Allegory of Aliens

I mentioned in the Avatar review that while an awesome visual experience, (and I'm a James Cameron fan), I got the idea stuck in my craw that today's political situation could easily be re-treated via the movie Aliens if it were only recast with some characters of contemporary politics.

So, I invite you to imagine the movie in your head (directors cut of course), just as you would watch it at home, but replace the original cast with the political personalities/concepts listed equivalent to their role.

Listed in the order of appearance in the film:

Ripley - corpse of Ronald Reagen

Jonesy - Nancy Pelosi

Chestburster - Hillary Clinton

Burke - Harry Reid

Van Leuwen - Al Gore

Lt. Goreman - Barak Obama


Sulaco - '09 Stimulus Bill (effectively renaming the ship Stimlaco)

Bishop - Ron Paul

Cpl. Hicks - John McCain

Pvt. Hudson - Glenn Beck

Sgt. Apone -
John Kerry

Pvt. Wierzbowski - Howard Dean

Pvt. Frost -
Sarah Palin

Pvt. Vasquez - Al Sharpton

Pvt. Drake - Jesse Jackson

Cpl. Dietrich - Ted Kennedy

Pvt. Crowe - Janet Napalitano

Cpl. Ferro - Tim Geitner

Pvt. Spunkmeyer - Ben Bernake

Drop Ship - '09 Troubled Asset Relief Program (T.A.R.P)

APC - (General Motors)

Newt (Rebecca) - Joe Biden

Facehugger - SEIU/AFSME

Robot Sentry Guns - Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac

Alien Warrior(s) - A.C.O.R.N./Illegal aliens

Atmosphere Processor - Inflation of U.S. Dollar

Power Loader - Rush Limbaugh

Queen Alien - Barney Frank

Re: Allegory of Aliens

If I get bored tomorrow, I might write the abridged alternative dialogue.
