Republicans and Their Analogies: McCain as Jack Baur?

Posted by Greg Hambrick on Tue, Sep 9, 2008 at 4:21 PM


Marie Claire apparently asked John McCain if he most identified with an iconic folk singer, a crazed Hillary Clinton supporter, or Jack Bauer. Regardless of their differing roles in a variety of creative torture scenarios, McCain went with Bauer.

“We have a lot in common because he escapes all the time,” Mr. McCain said.

He's not alone. Bauer got a few shout-outs at the GOP Primary debates earlier this year.

Anyone ever notice how Republicans idolize a top secret agent and Democrats idolize Josiah Bartlet?
