On The Politico I found this!
September 02, 2008
Fans of the Sci-Fi show Battlestar Galactica have previously noted that John McCain looks like Colonel Saul Tigh — a temperamental war hawk and ex-fighter pilot , who also happens to be a former POW.
And, as Jonathan Last notes, Sarah Palin looks like a young President Laura Roslin — the former Secretary of Education who became president of the human race out of nowhere after the robotic Cylons killed almost all of them in a surprise nuclear strike.
In Season One, the remaining 40,000 or so human beings worry about her inexperience, her open religiosity and her choice to ban abortion in order to keep mankind alive.

Life imitates art again here!
Jimmy Akin has a GREAT piece of political analysis over at his place. Check it out!
Here is a sample:
Many observers were impressed by Col. Saul Tigh’s selection of Laura Roslin as his running mate in the upcoming election.
Others found Roslin to be a lightweight compared to Tigh’s 40 years of service to the Twelve Colonies and his record as a war hero and former POW.
Originally, Roslin held only a minor post in the Colonial government which–while it showcased her genuine love for children–nevertheless was a small backdrop before an unexpected and lightning rise to executive office, which she has held for only a short time.
On the other hand, her decision to ban abortion in order to keep mankind alive, her gung-ho Cylon-hunting, and her deep religious faith will surely fire up the base.
It is less clear what the effect will be of her statement that Admiral Adama’s deeply-unpopular and protracted conflict with the Cylons is a "task that is from the gods."
Some pundits viewed her selection cynically, saying that Tigh needed to choose someone like Roslin in order to shore up his standing in the party.
