Indiana Politica

Having seen Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull thought it very poor stuff, interesting only as an obvious commercial for John McCain - the grumpy older man, the hero getting on a bit who can still show the younger folk who think they know it all a thing or two, confronted by a castrating communist bitch. Obama is I suppose the La Beef boy, at the end trying to put on the hat but reminded that no, this is not your time, perhaps next election.

Trying to get into the spirit of it all I bought a a party supplies shop what I registered as an Indy hat;

only some while later did a more accurate perception kick in and I realised it was in fact a Freddy Krueger hat, a switch in semiotics across the entire width of the spectrum.

Nice analogy though weakened by no role for HRC.
For me, this flick is going to remain in the "Don't like it, not going to see it" uber-prejudice mode. Harrison Ford in the promos, looking most definitely an old man, is the sort of figure a comedy show might have made up twenty years ago to lampoon the possibility of his continuing against the odds and reality to play the role.
