If I didn’t know any better, I’d think this was a skit from Saturday Night Live. Democrat David Wu of Oregon actually made this speech on the floor of the House debating whether President Bush was a real Klingon or a fake one:
“Now, this President has listened to some people, the so-called Vulcans in the White House. The idealogues. But you know, unlike the Vulcans of Star Trek, who made the decisions based on logic and fact, these guys make it on idealogy. These aren’t Vulcans. There are Klingons in the White House. But unlike the real Klingons of Star Trek, these Klingons have never fought a battle of their own. Don’t let faux Klingons send real Americans to war.”
Say hello to the new face of Congress. Phasers set to … stunned.
