The Star Wars fan in me couldn't call this one "A New Hope," being as the scene was in "The Empire Strikes Back." Our own Rep. Steve King got on Mark Hamill's radar the other day, and Hamill voiced his support for one of King's opponents via Twitter. In recent history, it's been hard to dethrone Mr. King. The voting population of District 4 don't seem to want a change in their representation. That said, while Vader's words were true, it was Luke who ultimately brought him back from the dark side. So we'll see how this election goes. There may be hope yet.
On a side note, Republican-King-button-wearing-elephant-Vader is the best thing I've come up with in months.
