It’s The GOP Primary Field in Buffy Villains — a guide to the Republican Presidential candidates, explaining them by comparing them to villains from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
My very favorite is Fred Thompson as The Judge: “His backers got all excited and made a big effort to assemble him. When they finally put him together, he turned out to be a lethargic mess and didn’t accomplish very much.”
And there’s quite a bit of debate over where to put Rudy Giuliani. It’s a toughie, but after giving it way too much thought, here’s my suggestion:
Constantly obsessing about a moment of glory in his past, to the point where it’s become pathetic. Convinced that this past moment of glory still makes him impressive and intimidating and worthy of respect… and prone to getting very agitated when people don’t share this opinion. Nowhere near as powerful as he used to be, but still a threat. Not completely incapable of human feeling, but ultimately craven and self-centered.
What are y’all’s thoughts? And what about the Dems? What Buffy villains — or flawed heroes — are they?
