Gimli for President

GimliforAmerica2004.jpg

There is still one Dwarf who draws breath in Moria!

Ith has kicked off Aragorn's presidential campaign. Hmm... Aragorn, perhaps. Unfortunately, Viggo Mortenson's idiotarianism would have condemned Middle Earth to the Shadow. I am voting for Gimli!

Ironically, Mortensen's character in the movies is a military leader. And many have drawn parallels between the conflict in The Lord of the Rings with the war on terror. With a twinkle in his eye, Rhys-Davies confides that a friend whispered to him while watching Mortensen in The Return of the King, "Does he realize he's George Bush?"

And then... Oops! I have attributed to Ith that which was Ninjababe's! So... can we send some Gimli campaign literature over to Absinthe and Cookies?

Wasn't me that made that post. Was my coblogger, Ninjababe.
