Cylons and humans working together!


This is just too much fun. Two days ago, Carmen Andres posted a bunch of photos suggesting that there might be some sort of connection between John McCain and Battlestar Galactica‘s Colonel Tigh. And now that McCain has chosen his running mate, Palmer Houchins of Paste magazine notes that there may be a link between Sarah Palin and Laura Roslin. I think I like this even better than the Sarah Palin – Tina Fey connection that some people have been making. Thanks to Alissa Wilkinson for the link.

AUG 30 UPDATE: Looking at the characters’ biographies rather than their faces, Jonathan V. Last agrees with the Palin-Roslin parallel but thinks McCain is closer to an Adama figure.

SEP 4 UPDATE: The Tigh-Roslin campaign now has a website!
