Darth Vader swears in New York Sheriff; who should swear in Rep. Brockway?

Actor James Earl Jones, who voiced Darth Shafer Vader in the Star Wars movies, was on hand in Poughkeepsie, New York, to swear in longtime friend Adrian “Butch” Anderson as Sheriff of Dutchess County. This is the beginning of Anderson’s fourth term as Sheriff.

Since legitimate questions have been raised about whether a certain alleged State Representative was sworn in during last year’s “Snowpocalypse,” who should preside over the actual swearing in, if it ever occurs? I was thinking C3PO. And if that alleged State Rep. were to place one hand on the Bible and raise the other hand, who would twittercast it? And if it’s not live on Twitter, it never happened.

    Any chance it could be done over Labor Day weekend? DragonCon is always looking for something fun to do. A swearing in of legislators would be memorable.

    I’m surprised no one has suggested Paul Broun yet.

    P.S.: Doesn’t Butch Anderson sound like he should be a sheriff in Georgia instead of NY?

    Oh let’s just do away with the antiquated ritual of ‘swearing in’. It is the sewer line under the Wall of Separation and the damn politicians won’t honor their oath anyway.

    ..gollum..
