Pot, Meet Kettle

Finally, a non-politics post, sort of. So the creepy, Michael-Jackson-and-Mel-Gibson-obsessed gossip columnist over at Fox News, Roger Friedman, ran in to George "Jar Jar" Lucas, who had this to say about the success of Spider-man 3, a movie I'm quite eager to see:
Lucas told me he has seen all the summer movies since his company, Industrial Light and Magic, does most of the special effects. The only one they didn't work on was "Spider-Man 3." What did he think of it?

"It's silly. It's a silly movie," he said. "There just isn't much there. Once you take it all apart, there's not much story, is there?"

Well, it's not "Star Wars."

"People thought 'Star Wars' was silly, too," he added, with a wink. "But it wasn't."

He went on to say "I mean, they didn't have a single puerile jab at Georgie Bush, who I think is stupid and mean and probably a Sith Lord! And their non-Manichaean worldview was too subtle, without a single line like my awesome 'Only a Sith believes in absolutes!' That's dramatic gold there, people!"

*Disclaimer: I am a drooling, sycophantic Star Wars Trilogy fan. After George Lucas died halfway through the production of Return of the Jedi and was replaced perennially by Mrs. Johnson's fifth grade class at his former highschool and some impressive audioanimatronics, things just went downhill.

What do you expect from someone who dated Linda Ronstadt?
