What Did Kyle MacLachlan Know...And When Did He Know It?

I enjoyed John Hodgman's remarks at the recent White House Correspondents' Dinner, but after reading this BBC story about a Dune-loving conspiracy theorist, I began to wonder, could Hodgman's whole routine have been, in fact, a series of coded messages revealing the secrets of a dark government conspiracy right under the President's nose???

Or perhaps "Kwisatz Haderach", far from being merely an innocent, if spectacularly nerdy, Dune reference, was actually a "trigger word" intended to "activate" the one-man sleeper cell otherwise known as our 44th President. And you thought McCain was the Manchurian Candidate!

I also found this passage from the BBC News story quite interesting:

"A document on Muad Dib's website reveals he believes he is the Messiah and that George Lucas wrote Star Wars after being told telepathically what to write, by the very 'Force' to which the films refer."

[insert your own Phantom Menace/Jar Jar/Xmas special/Kessel Run joke here]
