Fiction taken for Reality?

Is it just me, or does this just smack of Galaxy Quest?

To the tune of "Hail to the Chief," Geena Davis was honored by a United Nations affiliated organization for her portrayal as the U.S. President on the show "Commander in Chief."


I know this might break their fragile little, peace at all costs, feminist hearts, but ...not only was it pretend, but the show was just cancelled. A female president can't even cut it on television.

The full story's here. It's worth a look.

"... thankful (for) ... role models like Anita Hill"?!? Hee-yikes! I thought she disappeared, but no, they gotta keep bringing her up.

Hmmm, that could be the ticket for the Dems in '08: Hillary Clinton and Anita Hill. Hilly and Hill. Their theme song (from "Sound of Music") - Climb Every Mountain (or Hill).

Galaxy Quest! By Grabthar's hammer, that was a pretty good movie. I'll take Sigourney Weaver as President over Geena Davis, although Ms. Davis is supposed to be a Mensa member. Not that you need to be in Mensa to be President or anything ...
