Movie daydreams

Reading WaPo's report of Sen. Kerry's press conference today in which he blamed President Bush for the SwiftVets' attacks on the military record that Sen. Kerry has chosen to make the cornerstone theme of his campaign, I was reminded of a particular movie (or actually, three movies, to be more precise). 

No, not "Apocalypse Now" — not today, anyway.  Not "Bring It On," although Sen. Kerry did say those words.  Not "Top Gun," although that's a good Navy flick.  Not even the last scenes from "The Caine Mutiny," although I see more and more similarities between Lt. Comdr. Philip Francis Queeg and Sen. John F. Kerry every day.

No, the movie monolog I imagined to myself as I was reading this story was from another movie altogether, and it went something like this:

We hateses them!  We hateses the enemies!  They must all be grubby Republican hobbitses from Texasssss, yesss!  Smeagol hateses the Ssssswift Vetses!  Gollum!  They try to keep poor brave Smeagol from getting the preciousssss ...  Gollum-gollum!  My preciousssss!

But that's just me.

And we know what happened to poor Smeagol, don't we, Precious?

So, let me get this straight, Gollum's ring = Kerry's hat?
