A lot of people on the right are all exercized over Hilary Clinton's characterization of Dick Cheney:

September 20, 2007 -- Hillary Clinton pulled out her light saber last night at a fundraiser in New York as she called Vice President Dick Cheney "Darth Vader."

"Vice President [Dick] Cheney came up to see the Republicans yesterday. 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 in Manhattan's Town Hall near Times Square.

But, honestly, that was just a lame attempt at humor, something I am very familiar with. The test for Hillary will be how she reacts to the lame attempts at humor at her expense when somebody thinks of a movie character to cpmare her to. Let's see: condescending, inclined to petty tyranny, involved in health care and, oh, yes, no sense of humor. Ahah: Nurse Ratched.

Nurse Ratched - good one!! and spot on

I have been hearing the "Darth Vadar March" in my head whenever Cheney is on TV for some time - not only is Hill's joke lame but old too!
