Oh this is just rich!!

As any Truebie knows, the town of Bon Temps is always overdosing on its own cocktail of religious politics.

So it's no surprise that True Blood creator Alan Ball went to the presidential primaries for a lil' monstrous inspiration:

"My first instinct about going into religion and politics was from watching Michele Bachmann, who thinks she has a direct line to God.

What would happen if she became president? A lot of right-wingers would like to see a theocracy in America. From there we thought, 'What would a vampire theocracy be and how would you justify it? What kind of impact would it have on humans?'"

And from all that brainstorming comes a CRAZY war between the mainstream Authority and the vampire religious extreme - the Sanguinistas. They're the ones who think God only made humans to feast on!

Well that explains Rev. Newlin's role in Season 5! Ha!

June 10 needs to be here NOW! Our thirst is insatiable!!!

    Oh bullcrap. "Children of the sun" (religious extremist) appear in the first or second book that was written years ago. It's been an ongoing story. Nice try Alan but fans of the books know this was in no way YOUR big idea. It's laughable, really.

    I wonder if Obama inspired the Randall Flagg character in Steven Kind's The Stand?

    Jesus, Perez, you'll post anything that gives you an excuse to bully Bachmann. The timeline for these claims is all wrong, douche bag. I'd love to lock you in a room with her; she'd slice and dice your cowardly ass in mere seconds. You can say what you want here, but would you have the nerve to talk smack to her face? I doubt it, pansy boy.
