this is wrong

Hillary Clinton was today quoted as saying: "You can always tell when the Republicans are getting restless, because the Vice President’s motorcade pulls into the Capitol, and Darth Vader emerges."

I would like to come out against this statement. I publicly apologize for this misguided attack. The declaration is reprehensible and insulting. Permit me to explain.

This comparison of Vice President Richard B. Cheney to Darth Vader has been quite common over the last several years, and it is entirely unfair. The problem is that it is completely inaccurate. You see, Darth Vader was born as Anakin Skywalker, a brilliant and caring child of unfortunate circumstances who became street-wise as a result of the difficult life he led. He was seduced by the dark side of the Force after he had grown to adulthood and rapidly became the scourge of the universe and the right hand of the evil emperor.

Cheney's ALWAYS been a dick.
