The Empire Strikes Bush or "Now, Weesa Loves Hims!"

When "Attack of the Clones" came out, the generally conservative Detroit News convened a panel of absolutely idiotic people suffering from Terminal Grievance Syndrome to have a group fantasy about all the racist imagery that George Lucas allegedly had included, like making Jango Fett a darker-hued person to express his childhood xenophobia about migrant workers in his boyhood home of Modesto, CA. Truly nutty and WRONG stuff.

Well, with the release of "Revenge of the Sith" happening tomorrow and the film's premiere at that America-bashing conclave known as the Cannes Film Festival, the media has been very kind toward the movie and its director? Why? Because the rabidly liberal press, ever eager to find anti-Dubya media to hype, has decided that Lucas has come up with a timely parable about the evils of Republican government - the Party, not the form of government (not that the Left likes anything less than totalitarian fascism) - and thus are stroking their happy spots in pieces such as The Empire Strikes Bush.

Of course, in 2010, when President Hillary Rodham Clinton suspends the Constitution, hands control of our government over to the UN and has Christians rounded up into "re-education camps" (read: an American gulag), I don't think the same media folks will be so eager to cheer these movies as timeless parables. No, they certainly won't.
