Okay…so for those of you wondering the answers for yesterday’s blog were:
I didn’t really think posting this little exercise was going to cause the controversy it did. As you can read in the comments from the last entry, I was accused of outright plagiarism because of this Video that has apparently been bouncing around the net for a couple of days.
The genesis for what turned out to be my unoriginal idea came while watching the Phantom Menace on the weekend during a reorganization of my clone trooper action figures. Some of the lines being tossed around on both sides of the campaign sounded similar to the politics in the prequels.
