Top Gun Backs Obama?

"Top Gun", one of the biggest movies of the 1980's, will  be released in 3D in 2012, but not without some controversy. The popular Tom Cruise action/romance film is being in enhanced with state-of-the-art technology in hopes of appealing to a new film-going demographic. However, it's not the realism of the dog-fights, or the overly homoerotic beach volleyball scenes that raise the ire of critics. The addition of several new scenes are being criticised for being direct endorsements of President Obama's re-election. Such third party advertising would normally exceed campaign finance laws but the re-release of a 25 year old movie may be exempt.

Republican watchdogs cite some of the following "new" scenes and edits as examples of blatant political interference by Hollywood:
  • The Soviet pilot of the MiG Maverick encounters at the film's opening bears an uncanny resemblance to Dick Cheney.
  • When we first learn of the circumstances around Maverick's father's heroic death, his aviation call sign has been changed to "Barack".
  • During the locker room scene, an unidentified naked black man walks by the shower while one towel-wearing pilots remarks "That Obama is one big dicked fighter jock!"
  • After Goose's tragic death, Maverick makes and impassioned soliloquy for a universal health care plan that might have saved his friend.
  • When Maverick is about the throw Goose's dog tags into the ocean, a stranger (who bears a striking resemblance to Barack Obama) puts his hand on Mav's shoulder and says, "Son, I understand you're upset right now, but don't you think Goose would want his son to have those someday when he's older?" Maverick pauses, then thanks him for his wise words, pockets the dog tags and walks away.
  • During the final battle, Maverick is saved when an unseen Tomcat by shoots down a MiG that got on his tail. Afterwards, Ice Man confesses it was not him that saved Maverick but "Obama got the job done!"
