Republican strategist Karl Rove acknowledged last night that he isn't the most popular guy in politics these days -- but he's not the only one.

Speaking at the 92nd St Y Wednesday night, Rove corrected an audience member who referred to ex-veep Dick Cheney as "Darth Cheney" when asking a question.

“No, no, no, no, no. You've got it all wrong!” Rove quipped. “I'm Darth Vader, Cheney is [Emperor] Palpatine!”

The controversial political mastermind who helped engineer numerous successful political campaigns including George W. Bush's victories in 2000 and 2004, was promoting his new book "Courage and Consequence: My Life as a Conservative in the Fight."
