Mark Hamill feels Mitt Romney hails from the Dark Side of politics.

The Star Wars actor says the Republican Presidential candidate is a snake oil salesman who must be defeated by President Obama in next month’s election.

No, he was not one of the people threatening Stacey Dash.

Hamill first commented on the election in July, joking at Comic-Con (where he was promoting his new film Sushi Girl) that “Mitt Romney is not actually human.”


“If you don’t vote for Barack Obama, you’re insane. ‘Cause without him, I think the middle class will completely disappear,” the 61-year-old actor said.

“And you look at Romney and I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but I think he’s like The Thing – he only imitates human behavior. He’s not actually human himself.”

“So God bless him, I’m enjoying him running for office but … I just came out as a lifelong Democrat.”

Hamill’s most recent tweet generated 1,000 re-tweets and also inspired some entertaining Star Wars-themed responses, i.e. “What if he turns out to be your father.”

Another classic: “Help us @BarackObama, you’re our only hope!”
