"V" Returns as... Anti-Obama Allegory?

The trailer looks decent, even if it does crib the "Excuse me?" moment from Frost/Nixon.

If you somehow missed the strangely cautionary messaging about Obama, let Allah enlighten you.

Words to focus on: Change, Hope, and Devotion to a supposed savior.

Barack Obama, Reptoid? In case you don't know, there's a strange subterranean crazy conspiracy theory postulating that most of the world's leaders are in fact "Reptoids," lizard-like vampiric aliens which can disguise themselves as humans. Confirmed Reptoids include Bill Clinton, George Bush, Queen Elizabeth, and Kris Kristopherson, and no, I didn't throw in that last name as a jokey change-up. He really is named as a Reptoid in the, um, literature.

David Icke is the, err, principle architect of this, err, theory. In fact, it appears he just cribbed the whole notion from the original V.

So: Is Obama a "Reptoid"?

In what appears to be a PR decision, Obama has been provisionally dubbed not a Reptoid, at least until his popularity rating comes down a bit. Wouldn't want to anger the many crazy people who voted for Obama, after all.

However...

. In a case of "you got your sci-fi in my conspiracy theory", they call this the new world order, and 9/11 was most definitely involved. Obama comes in somewhere too, but shockingly he actually isn't a reptoid! Instead he seems to be one of their puppets, and he is hope-nitizing us all (hypotizing with hope).

The Firefly Curse? Gee, I thought the hot-ish alien spokeslady/spokeslizard looked familiar. It's Inara from Firefly.

Which makes it likely V will be canceled shortly.
