The Case for the Empire

I’ve been thinking idly about Revenge Of The Sith coming out tomorrow (and George Lucas’ recent thinly-veiled potshot at President “Darth Sidious” Bush), so I thought it might be worth looking back at an old column in The Weekly Standard that turns conventional Star Wars wisdom on its head. Check out “The Case for the Empire” and tell me what you think.
And no, I’m not very serious. Only barely.

UPDATE: John Podhoretz has seen the movie, and he’s not amused.
UPDATE 2: Derb hates Star Wars. All of it.
