So Star Wars creator George Lucas was up on Capitol Hill today with Rep. Nancy Pelosi today talking about the Democrat Party's "Innovation Initiative."

There is nothing to it. It offers private businesses and innovators nothing in the way of financial incentives to invest in things like high-tech R & D, broadband, manufacturing, or educational programs targeting engineers or science.

What struck us was Lucas's statement that Pelosi had basically been begging him for money for years. But a database check at OpenSecrets.org doesn't indicate that Lucas has been a huge donor to Pelosi or anyone else in the Democrat Party.

Surely the Democrats could have found someone with a better pedigree for giving to their causes.
