Democrats are out of touch with pop culture

For a party that prides its self on being in touch with America, the Democrats have chosen an odd name for the gigantic outdoor video display at their convention site. One wonders if the name "SkyNet" was chosen intentionally or if the poor simps are just too snobbish to have been aware of one of the most popular movie franchises in the past 25 years.

Those of you who are a fan of the "Governator" will of course instantly recognize SkyNet as the computer/satellite system that seized control of worldwide military systems and set out to eradicate mankind in the Terminator series of movies.

Of course, that could be what they have in mind for the world of free enterprise, self reliance, and true democracy. Hmmm....I wonder why their Hollywood pals didn't warn them off this little faux pas.
