George Lucas may not endorse it, but the liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org is summoning the Force to help preserve the Senate filibuster.
In a new television campaign to be launch this week, MoveOn is drawing parallels between "Star Wars: Episode III The Revenge of the Sith" and the partisan battle over the confirmation process for federal judges. The television spots will compare the film's plot, specifically the intergalactic power grab by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, with the rise of Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.).

MoveOn.org is embracing the comparison by running new ads comparing Senate Republicans to the Empire:

Anyways, on the news, just saw video of GOP leaders going on about how Lucas/SW3 is attacking the Bush Administration and the film must be stopped. How? Trying to raise the rating from pg-13 to R to keep more people from seeing it. SO sad the GOP considers it a threat/attack on Bush.
The title of the news thingy? Darth Bush.

For example - the separatist droid general retreats to planet Mustafar, and there is a big battle going on there.
Mustafar? Sounds very Arabic, dont you think? Like a city in Middle East.
Why would mister Lucas choose this arabic name for a planet, when he can choose just about any

Overall though, I want to take this space, and opportunity to say that , I think that movie sucked Asss!!! As someone who saw the original in a drive-in, I can honestly say that this latest installment, was the worst of all.
