Revenge of the Sith Budget

May 19th:

Oh, according to the IMDB, the official Budget for Revenge of the Sith is 115 million dollars. This post disusses the fact that a Confidence vote occurred in Canada on the same day that Revenge of the Sith opened.

* Paul Martin tables his budget as a vote of confidence.

* Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith opens.

Everyone knew that Paul Martin was a Star Wars fan, but of another kind.

According to Kevin Smith's "Spoiler" review, it's a dark, dark film.

Perhaps Martin's "Revenge of the Sith" budget is fitting of an election that is sure to hail in a new Dark Age of Canadian politics.

Interestingly, May 19th marks:

1649: England declared a Commonwealth
1906: The last British soldiers leave Canada

2005: The date that the Queen will be in Regina.

Nah, I'd say it's the Star Wars thing.
