It's been nagging away in the deep, dark recesses of my mind. All of this sudden attention on the Newt and his lovely and talented trifecta, Callista, stirred in me a tingling memory upon which I just couldn't quite put my Tiffany-bejeweled finger.
But then, in his inimitable subliminable way, the Great Orange Satan himself dislodged it with his post tonight.
To wit, I've seen this movie before!
Follow me below the orange squiggle of enlightenment...if you dare!
Mars Attacks, directed by Tim Burton, was released in 1996. Per imdb:
The Earth is invaded by Martians with irresistible weapons and a cruel sense of humor.
Jack Nicholson, Pierce Brosnan, Glen Close, Danny Devito, Sarah Jessica Parker.
Attacks on the White House and Congress via the devious Martian and his lovely and talented companion (alas, clips are regrettably disabled on YouTube). Take a look at these pics of the villains, then go back above the squiggly and look at Newt and Trey, and then come back. Go ahead, I'll wait.
These people are dangerous folks, folks. We mustn't let them get anywhere near the White House!
Still though, my memory nags...
