Star Wars Day
Ironic day for the house to pass the health care bill. Why? I think everyone is familiar with the Star Wars line, "So this is how liberty dies. With thunderous applause." - spoken by Queen Amidala (Natalie Portman) in Star Wars III - Revenge of the Sith. The line is given as she watches Emperor Palpatine tell a cheering Senate that he had taken all their power away to form a Galactic Empire. By all accounts, that line was written as a slam on George W. Bush. Today we could just as easily say, "so this is how the 'repeal Obamacare' promise dies."
