Artist's Statement

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."
