More Star Wars Statistics

The picture of dignity

In keeping with our recent theme of applying statistical analysis to the Star Wars saga, we here note one pundit's brilliant observation that reviled character Jar Jar Binks has a greater approval rating among Americans than does our current Congress.

The comparison is apt, if unscientific: Binks himself served as a Galactic Senator.

Never mind that he was also instrumental in granting Chancellor Palpatine, aka Darth Sidious, emergency powers leading to the Senate's eventual dissolution and the subsequent establishment of the Galactic Empire.

What do they say, life imitates art? Or is it the other way around?
