Ok, some serious email discussions going on about Bush as Darth Vader [and in the comments as well] so I'm taking it here.

With Bush starring as Darth Vader, cast the rest of the movie and the likely scenarios in the like manner.

Josh suggests: Osama Bin Laden = Obi Wan Kinobe, Bush Sr. = Emperor Palpatine, The Death Star = ... Uhm, Israel I guess. And he also suggests what I've been thinking: Bush using the Imperial Death March as his theme song.

My favorite comment so far on the similarities between Vader and Bush came from Brendan:
Vader: Had a secretary named Bush.
Bush: Has a secretary named Vader.


Yea, we may be pandering to the fleft*, but we're having a good time doing it.

Now, if I could figure out how to use Flash, I could make an election ad with this theme.

Update: Yea, I forgot the footnote.

*fleft: denotes the far left, like Michael Moore, Ted Rall and Indymedia, as opposed to the sane left.

I still think Yasser Arafat as Yoda. Except they might have to put Yasser in lifts to make him look tall enough.

Awright, humor us stoopid Texicans. 'Splain the "fleft" word.

Toward the end of the arguement you spring "Luke Skywalker = Saddam Hussein" on them.

I'm only 50% happy with that one... Who's the dashing young "pious guy the little Arabs wanna be like on my knees day and night scoriní points for the afterlife?"

So donít be vain and donít be whiny
or else I might have to get medieval on your heinie.

I was looking for images to Photoshop and I came up with this page. Coincidence?

If Dubya is Darth Vader (aka Anakin Skywalker), then Laura Bush must be Queen/Senator Padme Amidala. That would make their twin daughters Barbara and Jenna Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker, respectively. Karl Rove and Dick Cheney must be Obi-wan Kenobi and Yoda (Cheney & Yoda have both stayed in "undisclosed" locations). Colin Powell would be C3PO (or possibly Jar Jar Binks), and Condi Rice (loud whistles) would be R2D2.

Riyadh delenda est!

How you gonna fit Leia in a chador?

Oops I linked to the wrong cartoon. Apparently hitting the previous comic arrow doesn't change the URL in Mozilla GRRRR...

I meant the december 26th comic.

Swerdloff, now we know why Leia is a rebel. Having your hair styled (think "buns") is a capital offense in Saudi Arabia.

I'm not joking, read Orianna Falaci.

I'm seeing Saddam as Princess Leia myself. Luke will be some random suicide bomber with dreams of glory.

I'll go with the obvious, but continuing on the fleft side since they must be in the movie as well(use the fleft, Luke)... Michael Moore as Jabba the Hut (shamelessly hawking his recent book "Stupid Black Imperialists," Ted Rall as Jar Jar Binks, Arundhati Roy as Princess Leia, Jimmy Carter as Yoda, Viggo Mortensen as Han Solo, Sharon as Spielberg (who do you think is directing the evildoers?)

I dunno who else you could cast, but you've DEFINATELY go the Israel/Death Star thing confused....

Arab Countries=Death Star
Aalderaan=Israel

Remember, the Death Star blew up Aalderaan.....

For pete's sake folks, by all y'all seem to be missing the point of equating Bush to Vader. If ya do that, the Republicans have to be on the Dark Side.

Although I do like the idea of either Cheney for Grand Moff Tarkin, and Karl Rove for Boba Fett.

Thank you, AR. At least someone knew where I was going.

Yeah, when I realized that Howard Dean or Dick Gephart was Luke Skywalker I started to think this was a bad idea.

On the other hand I'm thinking of making Darth Vader Tee Shirts that say "I find your lack of faith disturbing."

Oops I meant Darth Vader fading into GWB Tee Shirts that say "I find your lack of faith disturbing."

I guess the Dean voters would be Ewoks? This has possibilities!
