congressman david wu: trekkie

Congressman David Wu tells it like it is. Well, not really. But he gives one hell of a geeky Star Trek metaphor while talking about the war in Iraq: "THERE ARE KLINGONS IN THE WHITE HOUSE!" REP. DAVID WU
Now, this President has listened to some people, the so-called Vulcans in the White House, the ideologues. But unlike the Vulcans of Star Trek, who made the decisions based on logic and fact, these guys make it on ideology. 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. It is wrong.
Actual words spoken on the floor of the United States Congress.
