Star Wars and the State of the Union Address

Obama’s hypnotic effect on weak-minded voters reminds me of a classic exchange in the first Star Wars movie in which storm troopers, who are searching for Ben and Luke’s droids, stop Ben and Luke to interrogate them about the droids with which they are traveling.  One demands of Luke, “Let me see your identification.”  Ben intervenes and contradicts the trooper, “You don’t need to see his identification.”  After a confused pause, the trooper’s aggression gives way to compliance, “We don’t need to see his identification” he says.  Ben then asserts “These are not the droids you are looking for.”  The trooper hypnotically repeats, “These are not the droids we’re looking for.”  Ben then says “He can go about his business.”  The trooper parrots, “You can go about your business.”  Finally, Ben concludes with , “Move along.”  The trooper repeats, “Move along, move along.”

Later, when Luke asks Ben how he had managed to mesmerize the storm troopers, Ben explains, “The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.”

Who could be more “weak-minded” than the lobotomized independents who, after rightly punching Congressional Democrats in the face for their Socialist excesses, are now lifting Obama’s poll numbers, merely because he won passage of some dangerous Lame Duck legislation and is peppering his speeches with above-the-fray petitions for a more civil dialogue — which anyone with any intelligence reads as a thin-skinned demand that his critics stop expressing outrage for the outrageous things he is doing!  45% of voters are evil, 45% are virtuous and the remaining 10%, the ones who decide our elections, are dumb as a post and fickle as school girls.
