Interviewer: If you could be any character in Star Wars, who would you be?

George Lucas: Uh, I don’t know. I like all the characters. Jar Jar Binks. 

Even in the face of constant hate and complaining from people above and below his age, George Lucas still stands by the Prequels and Jar Jar! 

This is probably the point where George’s bizarre love for Jar Jar went past “what” territory and into “this is actually quite an impressive display of sticking to your guns” territory.
