The Force Will Be With You, Always

The Empire Strikes Barack appears to be the latest pop-culture viral video to come out in support of Obama.  Less a mashup than a jumbled compilation of clips from election news and the Star Wars films, the video positions Hillary Clinton as the leader of the Dark Side against Obama’s message of hope and change.   The video honestly doesn’t tell us a whole lot about either candidate, but I find it mildly interesting if only because it, perhaps unintentionally, underscores the complete incoherence and stupidity of much of the discourse surrounding the 2008 election at this point, discourse that seems intentionally designed to prevent us from knowing anything much about any of the candidates’ policies.
