Sith Wars: Episode Deux

I was wrong about the scope of the war over Star Wars. The liberals are getting into the act too, with Moveon.org running ads comparing Senate majority leader Bill Frist to the evil Emperor Palpatine (actually, Joe Lieberman is the senator bearing the most striking resemblance to Palpatine, but that's neither here nor there).

Critical political analysis of movies used to be the purview of Marxist film professors, but thanks to the internet (not least the blogosphere), the conservative backlash and a new political subclass whose full-time job it is to keep people angry ... we're all critical analysts now.
