Honestly, it's a stretch. But even the faintest resemblance of Clinton Era Deputy AG (and future Obama Era AG) Eric Holder to Lando Calrissian is enough to send the Wonkette comment boards into a reference frenzy. Some highlights:
Is it too geeky to suggest that someone must have told Obama about his little maneuver at the Battle of Tanaab?
superfecta: Bill Clinton just said he was a fair lawyer, he didn’t think they were looking for someone to lead this crazy thing.
Don’t worry, he’s just made a deal that will keep the empire off our backs forever.
He’s got a lotta nerve coming back here after what he pulled.
It’s a trap!
I can see it now! Eric Holder flying the Millenium Falcon out of the exploding Congressional Dome yelling, “YEEEEEEHAAAAA!” FTW
I’m afraid his subpoena powers will be quite operational when the Republicans arrive.
Oh fun. I love politics. But on a serious note, more Clinton Era cronies in the Obama cabinet?
This deal's getting worse all the time!
