Battle of the Star Trek captains for President of the US of A

There is some eery resemblances in looks and personalities between some of the Star Trek captains and the US presidential candidates. Here is John McCain as Next Generation's Capt. Jean-Luc Picard.

"There are four lights!" said Capt. Picard McCain when he was held prisoner by the Cardassians.

Next, we have Barack Obama as Deep Space Nine's Capt. Benjamin Sisko.

Finally, Hilary Clinton plays Capt. Kathryn Janeway on Voyager. She was destroyed by Sisko Obama because the evil Borg collective tried to transmit Sisko Obama's thoughts about not really wanting to change the Intergalactic Free Trade Agreement among the Federation, Ferengi, and Vulcans even though Sisko Obama told his crew that he would. Captain Janeway Clinton (who wore pantsuits [sexist comment]) had her supporters start spreaking rumours that Sisko Obama went to a Klingon training-camp school that supported extremism when he was young.

All three captains wanted to lead the Federation. Capt. Janeway Clinton had a wonderful record but her starship and her mind were really in outer space. Really, her only chance of leading the Federation would have been if Sisko Obama were obliterated by the Borg collective. That didn't happen. Sisko Obama decided help bring Janeway Clinton's Voyager starship home by giving her coordinates to a wormhole that would bring her ship back sooner. Unfortunately, the wormhole sent her further into space where she and her crew were destroyed by the Romulans.

Now it's a race to see who will lead the Federation: Picard McCain or Sisko Obama. Vote at my Star Trek captain for US president poll.

Oh so funny. And though I understand the necessity, I would never be so cruel as to compare Picard to McCain, but if you have least add the parallel between Kirk and Bush because they're both mildly retarded and I'm sure that if Kirk and Picard had spent more time together, Picard would be up Kirk's ass as much as McCain is up Bush's.

I apologize to Picard.

Actually, I was thinking Kirk/Bill Clinton.
