The greatest story ever told

At the risk of looking like a real dork. I have to admit that George Lucas is a true genius. This dude wrote all the star wars movies decades ago and by some whim of clairvoyance or cosmic Force; almost spot on predicted the major players in the 2008 presidential race. The parallels are pretty amazing when you look at it.

Senator McCain is this national hero, he rose to power in the senate, and now hes positioning himself through strategic political moves to seize control of the empire. I’m not even mentioning the fact that his face looks just like the dark lord. His snide remarks and “Maverick” behavior perfectly mirror the actions of Darth Sidious. Hes even out to destroy and discredit our New Hope.

I find it insulting that the same hard leaning right wing pundits who can denigrate everything Obama and vilify the slightest Hillarian move; can twist and turn blatantly underhanded and divisively conniving political moves and Hail them as “Just, Patriotic, Christian and American”. It feels like we are in a fight up an uphill battle against a well oiled machine

I could expound further, but alas, school is beckoning me. However i do have one more thought. Its pretty obvious that America is yearning for change, and both candidates are offering change but one thing we mustn’t forget it that not all change is a good thing. Mussolini was change, Trujillo was change, Hitler was change, BUSH was change. Not all change is good change. When looking for agents of change we need to be wary. [especially when they themselves keep changing to pander votes.]
