Emperor Palpatine Wins City Council Seat In Ukraine

Emperor Palpatine’s thirst for power was quenched Sunday when he was elected to Odessa City Council in Ukraine, in an act of hubris not seen since he decided to build a second Death Star.

You can’t make this stuff up. A person who dresses up like a “Star Wars” character won a seat on a City Council. I’m hoping his campaign slogan was “Good! Use your aggressive feelings. Let the hate flow through you!” to inspire voters.

“Palpatine Dmitry, 25, won 54.4 percent of the votes in Sunday’s mayoral election in Odessa,” according to the New York Post. Mayoral candidate Aleksandr Borovik, whose lack of faith some may find disturbing, said “This is beyond my understanding. People, what’s wrong with you?”

“Star Wars” candidates have made up some of Ukraine’s perfectly named Internet Party, with Darth Vader, Yoda, Padme Amidala and Chewbacca on the ballot.

This news comes off the heels of poor Chewbacca being arrested Sunday at a polling place in Ukraine for not having a valid drivers license, showing Odessa police have never heard the old saying of “let the Wookie win.” Recently, Ukraine altered a statue of Vladimir Lenin to make it look like Darth Vader, after a recent ban on old communist symbols.

Face it, Ukraine seems to be bigger fans of the “Star Wars” saga than any other country. They are taking it to a whole other level.
