    Obviously the name Nute Gunray is a conflation of Newt Gingrich and Ronald Reagan, I get that. But what is George Lucas trying to say with this character? Is it a cheap one-liner or a serious critique of the GOP of the 80s and 90s? I hope it is, but would like more explanation. Please help and elaborate. Thanks.

    KK EDIT: Star Wars discussion doesn't belong in the Senate.

    You definitely need more substantive material than this topic to post a thread in The Senate Floor Forum.

    See the Rules and Regs Thread.
