The 'Spartan'-Obama Conspiracy! (Not Really a Conspiracy)

July 9, 2009

Did Obama base his entire campaign around a single shot in Spartan? Probably not--unless we later find out the guy is secretly a huge David Mamet fan--but IWS reader Juan J. Arroyo sent in the above still from the 2004 film, and the similarities are indeed striking.

Probably just a coincidence, and I'm sure Obama won't continue following the Spartan storyline by having a daughter murdered (Spartan spoiler), but it is also pretty weird how, if you piece together all of Val Kilmer's dialogue, it ends up being Obama's entire inauguration speech backwards.

(If you want to see it yourself, it's around the 1:05 mark on your home video player.)
