beam me up nut job…

I know it’s been all over the news so I will be surprised if any of you haven’t heard about Oregon Representative David Wu’s bizarre speech about Klingons & Vulcans in the White house and how we shouldn’t allow the “Faux Klingons” who “have never fought a battle of their own” to send real Americans off to war.

I have a few things to say here.

First: He isn’t necessarily wrong, but is there a way he could have voiced his opinion with out the Trek spin on the matter? I mean come on, I sleep in my Star Fleet Academy t-shirt (thank you Mike it is super soft) but I wouldn’t shove it in the face of the House of Representatives…

Second: Thank you Mr. Wu for making Oregonians look even crazier to the rest of the world than we already look.

Third: Am I wrong about this? The man is passionate about his politics and he is also passionate about his Trek. Is that so wrong? I kind of think it is (not the passions, the combining of them). While Trek is a classic American cultural touchstone it is also a fictional television show. How would I feel if politicians started comparing our current political climate & dealings to American Idol, That 70’s Show, Gilmore Girls or Smallville? I would feel like I live in a world of political lunacy…

Oh my… there is the point of all this… We DO live in a world of political lunacy…

    I just can’t stop laughing. I foudn the clip on YouTube and had to watch it like 10 times – then showed the husband the clip like 10 times. Then the John Stewart clip sent us into hysterics. You nut jobs, beam me home.
