Zing You I Can, Yes…

From the Rush & Molloy gossip column in today’s NY Daily News:

“The emperor works behind Darth Vader, he doesn’t actually stand in front,” [George] Lucas said. “I say that in fear of getting hit with a lot of buckshot.”

Apparently he wasn’t too thrilled about the “spoof video portraying House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi as the evil ‘Darth Nancy,’ pursued by virtuous GOP rebels” shown at a House retreat the week before Bush presented him with the National Medal of Technology (we have that?).

But wait, it gets better:

Republican staffers, dressed in “Star Wars” costumes, showed up outside [Lucas’s] press conference to inveigh against the Democratic evil empire trying to take control of Congress.

Um, guys? You really don’t want to pursue this angle, mmmkay?
