Star Wars analogies are always the bomb!

Mr. Olbermann and Ms. Maddow,

Just when I think I can’t love the two of you any more than I already do! You toss me Star Wars analogies! Oh thank you! Seriously. I know it’s pretty easy. Dick Cheney *is* Darth Vader. But it had been too long since I’d heard some good old fashioned Star Wars comparisons. You know what this means. We finally have our Luke! Obama is Luke! Which means that Cheney is really Obama’s father! OMG! But wait, we can’t stop there. Who is Leiberman? Hmmmm… How about Boba Fett? And did I miss it or do we still need a Yoda? So there are whispers of a Secretary of State Clinton. Whoa. I’ve never really thought of Hilary as Princess Leia, but I can work with that. I mean, Bill is kinda Han Solo-esque. Manly, charming, but not exactly thinking before he acts… Hm. This new administration blows the Star Wars nerdy analogies wide open. The sky’s the limit! I will have to revisit this.
