Clinton Warns of Darth Cheney

There may be some controversy as to whether MoveOn used appropriate language in their General Betray Us ad, but I bet Hillary Clinton will come out ahead for referring to Dick Cheney as Darth Vader. The Politico reports:

“You can always tell when the Republicans are getting restless, because the vice president’s motorcade pulls into the Capitol, and Darth Vader emerges,” Clinton said just now at town hall in New York, referring to Cheney’s efforts shore up Republican congressional support for the Iraq war.

I’m sure we’ll see a growing number of conservative blogs complaining. However they represent a distinct minority of Americans who approve of Dick Cheney and would never vote Democratic. Most voters who would consider voting for a Democrat are likely to understand and approve.

    In August we all shared some launch about the video interview that showed Comments made back in 1994 by the then US Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney about Iraq saying that invasion of Iraq could only mean TROUBLE.

    Here’s a lighter video about Cheney for some more giggles.

    Now that I think about it, Cheney does look a bit like Darth Vader without the helmet. Remember when Luke pulled the helmet off at the end of Return of the Jedi? Round head, bald, pale skin. Looks a lot like Cheney.

    Cheney just wears the glasses to make the resemblance less obvious.
