In a city a long time ago, in an election far, far away…..
It was a period of political war.
Evil candidates from all walks of life, striking from hidden bases, ethnic backgrounds, sexual likes, and levels of wealth, have won their first victory against the fair citizens of NYC.
During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret votes and endorcements of the Mayor’s office ultimate weapon against large sugary sodas, the BLOOMBERG STAR, an armored municipal building with enough power to destroy the entire city. The Naked Cowboy. Or, gasp, New Jersey!
Pursued by the candidates’ evil agents, the citizens race to the election booths this week, hoping to place their votes that will elect the right person who can save us all, and restore freedom to our great city…..
Ok – I’m in a goofy mood today. What can I say? I’m on my fifth cup of coffee and just ate a bag of gummy bears. Call it late morning sugar and caffeine delirium. Images and crazy thoughts swirl through my head. Somehow, I had Star Wars on the brain and this is what I regurgitated. Maybe it’s because the morning tv when I was getting ready for work was nothing but political candidate commercial after commercial pandering for votes. Maybe it’s also because I saw one of my fav movies recently – Spaceballs - and had the characters on my mind. Anyway, I see some resemblances among the players in both movies and the candidates. What do you think?
