Ok, I may be biased because I was basically raised on the original Star Wars trilogy, but I'm loving this picture of "Rush the Hutt" [image by twolf1, h/t watertiger over at firedoglake]. The image is just too perfect (albeit also too disturbing) not to share. If you need to sum up who is in charge of the Republican Party right now with one image, look no further:

Then again, maybe the fight for control of the GOP isn't over. We all know how this scene ended in the movie (uh ... for those of you who somehow don't know, spoiler altert):
