the Republican primary as BUFFY villains

via FARK, I bring you the Republican presidential candidates, as Buffy villains. (Sample: Fred Thompson = 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.")

There is, of course, serious debate in the original poster's comments and on the Fark forums over these picks. My favorite Fark comment is "Ron Paul = The Gentlemen: tall, gaunt, ready to take a scalpel to government, and surrounded by galloping lunatics in straightjackets." But I think it's wrong. Ron Paul is Spike. He's interesting at first, becomes more sketchy as you get to know him, and he's got tons of extremely vocal fans who JUST WON'T SHUT UP.

Folks are also working on the Democratic picks; so far the only one that works for me is Kucinich being Clem: big ears, strangely adorable, and you wouldn't want him in charge of anything in a million years.

(Someone actually suggested that Hillary was Darla. BLASPHEMY I KILL YOU.)
