Star Wars

As a means of indulging my two children, I took them to see the new Star Wars-movie last night. Among other things, some interesting parallels could be drawn to George Bush's speech in the aftermath of 9.11. For those of you who speak Swedish, Dagens Nyheter, one of the largest newspapers in Sweden, has an article on the subject: George W Vader vållar debatt (George W Vader causes debate).

90 hits on Google last night for "George W. Vader", and 2930 hits this morning... It is certainly interesting to see that so many online newspapers all over the world have chosen the same topic. I'm really not sure of what it says, though... Either the news agencies manage to get this past every gate keeper there is - it somehow feels like April Fool's Day - or perhaps the editors really think the parallel between Bush and Darth Vader is there. They certainly seem to enjoy playing around with the thought.
