George Lucas testified in front of the House Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet to back the Universal Service Fund. Lucas called on lawmakers to create a free, “third Internet” that would be used only for educational use. Of course, Lucas’ appearance was mocked by several members of the committee.
Pennsylvania Republican Mike Doyle: “The universal service fund needs to be blown up like the Death Star.”
Rep Lee Terry: “Rick Boucher and I are the Luke Skywalkers riding in to save the universal service fund by those who want to destroy it, the Darth Vaders.”
Massachusetts Democrat and subcommittee chairman Edward Markey: “The e-rate became law when Congress enacted it as part of the Telecom Act, and we’ve defended it with political light sabers ever since.”
Lucas refused to answer a question about “Who is President Bush more like: Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader?”, but insisted that Barack Obama would be a Jedi.
“I would say that’s reasonably obvious,” he said.
Yes, so very obvious. Lucas did not however attempt to argue that a refrigerator could protect a human being from a nuclear blast, because, well, that’s just a ridiculous thought.
