    'Let the Wookie Win'

    BY JAMES TARANTO


    A blogger called "bkm" has come forth with one of the most inventive insights of the 2004 campaign: John Kerry may actually be C-3PO, the neurotic, English-sounding metallic droid, who by the way served in the Clone Wars. We weren't about to take the word of some jammie-clad no-name, so we went out and bought the "Star Wars" DVD box set, released just this week (Karl Rove must've had something to do with the timing), watched the first movie, which is now called "Star Wars IV" for obscure reasons, and jotted down a bunch of Threepio quotes:

    "We'll be destroyed for sure! This is madness! We're doomed."


    "Hey! You're not permitted in there! You'll be deactivated for sure! Don't you call me a mindless philosopher, you overweight glob of grease!"


    "Secret mission? What plans? What are you talking about? I'm not getting in there! I'm going to regret this."


    "How did we get into this mess? I really don't know how. We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life."


    "Where do you think you're going? Well, I'm not going that way. It's much too rocky. This way is much easier."


    "What mission? What are you talking about? I've just about had enough of you! Go that way! You'll be malfunctioning within a day, you nearsighted scrap pile! And don't let me catch you following me, begging for help, because you won't get it!"


    "No more adventures! I'm not going that way."


    "That malfunctioning little twerp! This is all his fault! He tricked me into going this way, but he'll do no better."


    "Protocol? Why, it's my primary function, sir. I am well versed in all the customs."


    "No, I don't think he likes you at all. No, I don't like you either."


    "It wasn't my fault, sir! Please don't deactivate me! I told him not to go, but he's faulty, malfunctioning. Kept babbling on about his mission."


    "I suggest a new strategy, R2: Let the wookie win."


    "Help! I think I'm melting! This is all your fault!"
    The resemblance to Kerry's foreign policy is uncanny. C-3PO also has a lot of awkward arm movements, just like Kerry when giving a speech. On the other hand, Threepio has a certain lack of self-regard that is quite unlike the narcissistic Kerry. At one point, he tells Luke Skywalker: "I'm only a droid, and not very knowledgeable about such things. Not on this planet anyway. As a matter of fact, I'm not even sure which planet I am on." Apart from the confusion about what planet he's on, this is a decidedly un-Kerrylike comment. You can't imagine this droid ever demanding: "Do you know who I am?"

    I'm just waiting for Kerry to comment about his campaign with:

    "I've got a bad feeling about this".
