I said it would happen, and it did...

Last month, I said that the moonbats would use "Revenge of the Sith" as anti-Bush and anti-GOP rhetoric:

But mark my words, I guaranty that when this movie comes out, there will be people on the Left who will seize upon some of its themes and try to concoct an analogy for the War on Terror, the Patriot Act and the popularity of Bush among the "dopes" in fly-over country - as well as the current "evil" Republican majority in the "Senate".

And the moonbats did not let me down. The LA Times reports today:
In a new television campaign to be launched this week, MoveOn.org is drawing parallels between "Star Wars: Episode III The Revenge of the Sith" and the bipartisan battle over the confirmation process for federal judges. The television spots will compare the film's plot, specifically the intergalactic power grab by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, with the rise of Senator Bill Frist (R-Tenn)...

...In a related part of its campaign to preserve the filibuster, which allows Democratic senators to block votes for President Bush's judicial nominees. MoveOn also will send volunteers to some of the more than 3,700 theaters showing the film. Once there, the volunteers will urge moviegoers to call their senators to endorse the filibuster.

Sad, really. But amusing. Another golden opportunity for average Americans to see just how loony these folks really are.
