Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?
An embarassingly geeky cartoon.
(Hardcore Star Wars geeks need not trouble themselves to inform me
that most of Cheney's quotes are actually taken from Grand Moff Tarkin rather
than Lord Sidious/theEmperor.) It was fun to see how nicely so many of Star
Wars' villains' lines expressed the Bush administration's policies. Has
anyone else noticed the increasingly creepy parallells between the current
political situation in this country and that of the Galactic Republic in The
Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones?
The best line in this cartoon, however, is stolen not from George Lucas but
from my friend and webmaster Dave Israel: "Darth W. Cool."
