Good vs. Not-So-Good

I know it's silly but I've always thought that Barack Obama is the most excellent Star Wars name never used. Doesn't he sound like a totally cool Jedi Knight? Cooler than anything George Lucas could ever think up. God, it's embarassing to admit you like anything about Star Wars with its characters who sound like the imaginative space inhabitants of a 10-year-old boy. Read these out loud and try to keep a sense of dignity:

Lando Calrissian
Mon Mothma
Leia Organa
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Grand Moff Tarkin
Boba Fett
Mace Windu
Count Dooku
Captain Typho
Darth Maul and Vader
Jar Jar Binks

Some of these actually have rhyming schemes within their own names. It is hard to make up names, even from our own world, but Star Wars is especially dopey on that account. Anyway, I'm still getting over my horrible cold, so bear with me and my fuzzy logic. Come on Texas--you know who needs to triumph--turn it around for yourselves.
