Star Wars, Iran, George Lucas

Precious blogging time was taken up today composing this item for Mike Goldfarb's WWS on an Iranian endorsement of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

Just wondering: If you're George Lucas and you hate the evil, conservative, Bible-thumping Republicans, what do you think when you find out that an Iranian regime, which executes homosexuals and brutally represses women, (to say nothing of their terrorist activities) thinks you're a genius? Maybe you don't switch sides, but do you maybe, just for a second, wonder if you're on the right side of history?

Nah, probably not. A man who defends Jar-Jar Binks to the bitter end isn't going to be spooked by being on the same side as the Islamofascist mullahs.
