When it goes down, I want Harrison Ford on my side

The NaturalBlog touched on this idea late last year I compiled a listing of good fake presidents, but I think it deserves to be discussed in a full posting: Nobody kicks ass quite like Harrison Ford.

It doesn't matter who (terrorists in Patriot Games), where (Amish country in Witness) or when (the future in Star Wars). When the chips are down and his loved ones are in danger, Harrison Ford will kick your ass. And the ass of anyone you associate with.

How is it that the bad guys in his new movie Firewall (opening today) didn't realize this? Didn't they see Frantic, Presumed Innocent, or The Fugitive? Why would they ever threaten Harrison Ford's family? Don't they realize Harrison Ford is going to kick their asses?

I'd like to point out the irony that more Democrats have been elected in the movies than have held the Oval Office since the party's inception. Please, just for amusement's sake, could someone come up with a Republican president in a movie? Nixon doesn't count.

But then he'll recite Dr. Seuss on national TV, in front of the Super Bowl audience, like some kind of sissy.
