Darth W. Bush, Neocon?

As a lifelong Star Wars fan (who isn't, right?), the past two episodes have each been thoroughly disappointing, mostly because of Jar Jar Binks and the weird, distant, emotionless CGI. Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (ROTS) had the potential to really be awesomely amazing, if not for the not-so-subtle attempts on the part of George Lucas to draw parallels between arch-villain Darth Vader and President George W. Bush.

But, instead of gnashing teeth over it, it might be best to just embrace it. Aesthetically, it doesn't get any more awesome than Darth Vader. The earliest image I can recall from a movie theater:

Darth Vader.

George Lucas is bound and determined to ruin his trilogical masterpiece with the tripe of the past several years (including the oh-so wrong CGI additions to the originals). Let him. That's his prerogative. In the meantime, we can still have fun with the memory of the original awesomeness.

Patrick Ruffini is therefore having a photoshop contest.

Here's a cursory, quickly-dashed-out contribution to the event---

Darth W. Bush:


I'll try to produce a couple more if the creative spirit moves me.

Patrick Ruffini's hilarious contribution to his own contest:



In light of the comparison between President George W. Bush and Darth Vader, we celebrate the absurdity of it all by looking at some of the heroes on the other side with more entries to the Photoshop contest.

WI-JEF, the young Jedi:
