What’s Barack Obama?

Did he deliberately pair the pederast with Rick Santorum? Brilliant stuff!

Barack Obama is Chet Ripley, played by John Candy, from the John Hughes screenplay “The Great Outdoors.” He’s a lovable guy from Chicago, who suffers one mishap after another trying to have the perfect vacation with the family of his pretentious brother-in-law Roman Craig, played by Dan Aykroyd, a dead ringer in looks and character for Mitt Romney (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm4022443264/tt0095253). Roman Craig is always one step ahead of Chet Ripley, in coolness, money, etc., which Ripley is always one step behind him. It turns out that Roman Craig is a fraud, who lied about an insult and lost all of his money on Wall Street. If we keep with the movie, Newt Gingrich can be the bear and Ron Paul can be the old guy repeatedly struck by lightning.
