So, I have no idea how this didn't occur to me, or any of the nation's pundit class has not realized this before, but as the Bad Astronomer (among others) points out, John McCain is secretly an evil robot, and he has a plan.
Just look at how much McCain looks like Colonel Saul Tigh, the former evil robot hater who it turns out actually is an evil robot. Coincidence? The parallels go beyond mere physical appearance. They both have rage problems. Both were POWs with a physical disability caused by torture (McCain's arm and Tigh's eye). Both are regularly heard singing "All Along the Watchtower." They both killed their collaborator wife (wait, that might not be true)... This has been staring us all in the face all along folks! We MUST not give in to Cylon trickery.
