“We must bring balance to the Force.”
On Twitter, the White House has generated a meme for President Obama’s plan to avert the sequester and reduce the deficit (the “Jedi Mind Meld”). Yes, sci-fi metaphors seem to have been mixed, as Jedi were in Star Wars and ‘mind meld’ refers to Star Trek. Still, this is a cool way for the White House to reach out to the internet savvy.
UPDATE: The Atlantic Wire has the full story on the “Jedi Mind Meld” reference. Thanks David Connell!
