Match the GOP Candidate with the Futurist Movie

Which futurist movie results if each GOP candidate is elected?

Newt Gingrich:

  • “The Road” — Bold new thinking, like removing government regulations against eating children.
  • Alternate scenario: “Zardoz” — Giant heads drifting around making strange pronouncements.

Mitt Romney:

  • “Demolition Man” — The moralizing is half-assed, but at least corporations are doing well.
  • Alternate scenario: “AI: Artificial Intelligence” — So much effort to build the perfect human, but it is never quite convincing.

Ron Paul:

  • “Mad Max” — Government is finally off our backs (and market forces are allowed to play out in the energy industry).

Rick Perry:

  • “Rollerball” — Corporations rule the planet, and Houston is recognized as a global power center.

Rick Santorum:

  • “The Handmaid’s Tale” — Order is restored to familial relations.
  • Alternate scenario: “28 Days Later” — It turns out all that rage can be spread by bodily fluids.

Michele Bachmann:

  • “The Stepford Wives” — Something is deeply wrong in suburbia.

Jon Huntsman:

  • “Silent Running” — Yeah, I don’t know what to say either.
