Damnit! They’re using the Chewbacca defense

South Park Episode 214:

Gerald (Whispering): Dammit. [...] He’s using the Chewbacca defense.

Johnny Cochrane: Why would a Wooky, an eight-foot-tall Wooky, want to live on Endor with a bunch of two-foot-tall Ewoks. That does not make sense. [...] It does not make sense. Look at me. I’m a lawyer defending a major record company and I’m talkin’ about Chewbacca. Does that make sense? Ladies and Gentlemen I’m am not making any sense. None of this makes sense. And so you have to remember when you’re in that jury room deliberating and conjugating the Emancipation Proclamation, does it make sense? No. Ladies and Gentlemen of this deposed jury it does not make sense. If Chewbacca lives on Endor you must acquit. The defense rests.

Andrew Sullivan (among many) earlier this week:

Like many others, I’m still baffled by the rationale. [...] The only thought that makes any sense to me is if someone in the administration was trying to placate neo-con or conservative reporters or pundits [...] Look, I don’t know. I’m just trying to make sense of this.

Remember boys and girls, it does not make sense!

If Joe Wilson contributed to Al Gore’s campaign, you must acquit.
