"Lost" in the GOP

Rah and I recently watched the entire first season of Lost. We started watching it at 4 in the afternoon on a Saturday and finished the 4th dvd at 5 in the morning on Sunday, I then went on a trip and when I came back 2 days later we finished it. Now for the good part, I am very convinced that "Lost" is an elaborate propaganda piece for the GOP and the current administration. Here is my proof.

1 - The crazy lady on the island is French and the only survivor who can speak French is the dysfunctional and shallow rich girl. French people = bad and

2 - The Iraqi survivor (who is actually an Indian actor :-) ) is the model of what an Iraqi citizen can be when not under the control of Saddam. (OK, I know this may be a weak point but I am sure there is something here :-) )

3 - In one episode Sawyer was trying to open a case for hours and in the middle of it Michael walks by and with a shocked expression says "man that's a Halliburton, there is no way in the world that you can break into a Halliburton", so Sawyer tries using massive rocks to break into it and throws it off a tall tree but to no avail. It was like a 2 minute commercial for Halliburton.

I am sure there is more to it but I haven't seen season 2 or 3 so stay tuned….
