  1. Wow — excellent casting, Brian! Sadly, you’re probably right that this will become the “ATPM” for the current generation.

  2. Brian – Great casting and plot line. However, you forgot to cast the “Democrat heroes” in the story that get to the bottom of the plot:

    Sen Minority Leader Harry Reid – Harrison Ford
    Chuck Shumer – George Clooney
    Hillary Clinton – animatronic robot (more lifelike than the real thing!)
    Nancy Pelosi – Jennifer “Runaway Bride” Wilbanks
    John Kerry – Fred Gwynne (sure, he died in 1993, but that was the last time John Kerry had a pulse)
