Star Wars Has Nothing Over Vermont

has an hilarious post over at the Weekly Standard about how the nutters of Vermont are lost in their own little world. Err... I should say a BIG world called Star Wars. Unless you've been in hyperspace for an extended trip to the Outer Rim, you know that the big discussion in Vermont this week has been of seceding from the Union. Go read the post for a great laugh.

Here's what cracked me up.
I've been called dorkofascist for pointing out that the complaints we hear in the Star Wars films about the Galactic Republic aren't particularly beyond the pale: Namely that the Republic had grown too big and sclerotic to be governable and responsive to the needs of individual planets.

Now here's a hippie Vermonster talking about why Vermont should secede from the United States: "The argument for secession is that the U.S. has become an empire that is essentially ungovernable--it's too big, it's too corrupt and it no longer serves the needs of its citizens."
Is this newly appointed Vermont storm trooper one of today's Green Mountain Boys? Notice the credentials from the Emperor's personal guard. Wow....

Jonathan closes his post with this nice little nugget.

Hilarious. Priceless.

It's good to see you blogging again. :)

I thought I'd let you know that I looked at the original post, and it was actually a "Jonathan V. Last" who posted that article, not Michael Goldfarb. Goldfarb is just the editor.

Sorry. That's my detail-orientedness coming into play again.

Thank you! That's what I love about the blogosphere. A lot of editors out there to cross check the facts.
