Cheney Sports McCain

Vice President Cheney endorsed John McCain's run today. Dick noted John's suitability to serving on his new show, Running Man 2009. Cheney's quote is below:

“I’m delighted to sport John McCain and I’m pleased that he’s chosen a running mate with executive talent, toughness and common sense, our next vice president in Sarah Palin.

The ticket gets a five minute head start, then I come ablazing. Welcome to Dick Cheney’s Running Man 2009!”

I noted the odd parallels between the 1987 movie and America as it approaches 2009.

The world economy has collapsed. The great freedoms of the United States are no longer, as the once great nation has sealed off its borders and become a militarized police state, censoring all film, art, literature, and communications.

With full control over the media, the government attempts to quell the nation’s yearning for freedom by broadcasting a number of game shows on which convicted criminals fight for their lives. The most popular and sadistic of these programs is “The Running Man,” hosted by Damon Killian.

The contestants must search through the ruins for the resistance in the hopes of finally broadcasting the truth about the government.
