Reading the Constitution

Captain Kirk shows House Republicans, and Antonin Scalia, how it's done.



  • Thank god a Canadian actor can explain the US Constitution to a bunch of aliens. Wait, aliens? Throw then back across the Rio Grande! ;)

  • Personally, I'm with the Tea Party on this issue: I've never trusted Klingons and I never will. I can never forgive them for the death of Abraham Lincoln. (TOS 077)

  • Oooh, that episode. Not exactly going out on a high note, were they?

  • I've also heard that President Obama plans to either:

    * use memory-erasing obelisks to turn us all into Native Americans (specifically, an amalgamation of traditions from the Mohegan, Navajo, and Delaware tribes), or

    * collude with Al Gore to use the "Genesis torpedo"† to reformat the planet, so that it can be resettled by Bronze-age proto-Vulcans from Mintaka III.

    † Sure, the peaceniks prefer "Genesis device," and it was never actually meant to be fired out of a tube, and it did have a huge control box attached to it with a cable, but it was torpedo shaped and I just don't buy the whole "genetically engineered supermen from the 1990s escaped aboard a cryo-sleeper DY-100, before being on a planet by Starfleet, whose neighbor exploded, turning them into revenge-bound terrorists who just happened to use a Federation science experiment, in an 'attack,' to create a new planet so close to the Organian Neutral Zone" explanation. Like so much loose latinum, it just doesn't add up. (If this Khan guy did do it, then where are the isolinear chip records of the massacres onboard Regula I or the Reliant? It's pretty obvious that Reliant was under remote control from Enterprise, which -- even Starfleet admits -- had transmitted the Miranda-class vessel's prefix code no more than 10 minutes prior, taking total control of NCC-1864's command systems.
