George Lucas Does Not Approve This Message

I do try to stay away from the politics on this blog, but sometimes, it’s just impossible. Such as when people — oh, say, West Virginia governor Joe Manchin, for example — makes a political campaign ad playing the Imperial March over clips of his opponent John Raese… and implying that Raese might fly a TIE Fighter in his spare time to blow up schools, blue collar workers, and nurses. Happily, neither person’s party is specified — although I imagine you can guess — so let’s not argue the merits/problems of either party, and simply marvel how hard George Lucas is going to fuck Manchin for using Star Wars images without his permission. Thanks to TJ for the tip. (Via io9)
