Listen up, folks. Wes Janson here. Our illustrious leader Wedge Antilles may have suffered defeat by a sassy astromech droid, but the competition isn’t over yet. Today Luke Skywalker, the co-founder of Rogue Squadron, and the first man to hold the title of Rogue Leader, is up against that lying old wizard hermit, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You know, the man who hid in a desert for 20 years while the galaxy went to pot, lied and kept important information to himself (like the Princess being Luke’s sister, which could have helped them avoid a lot of awkward situations), and then encouraged our pal Luke to commit patricide. All the while Luke, humble farmboy as he is, believed in the power of the Light Side and encouraged Darth Vader to throw off his shackles and destroy the Emperor on the Second Death Star.
Luke is the new hope that the galaxy both needed and wanted! What did Obi-Wan do? Completely botch Anakin Skywalker’s training.
So if you want a liar to win this tournament, go ahead and vote Kenobi. If you want an honest, hard-working pilot and Jedi, who always believes in the good in people, vote Skywalker!
A vote for Luke is a vote for hope.
Thank you, and May the Force Be With You.
