"I've just made a deal that will keep the Empire out of here forever."
Followed shortly thereafter by, "This deal keeps getting worse all the time!"
Sometimes I think that I might like to be involved in local politics and I've considered (someday) running for positions like city councilperson or state representative. This idea came up again when I learned about Emily's List, a non-profit dedicated to training pro-choice, female candidates to run in local elections. But then I hear Darth Vader's voice in my head and I remember the devil's deals and terrible compromises that seemed to have to constantly happen in something so petty as Oxford college common room politics, and I'm not sure if I could do it.
"I am altering the deal, pray I do not alter it any further."
