Aliens Kidnapped the White House!




Well kids, now that the secret is out in Newsweek there's no reason for me not to talk.

Barak (rhymes with Spock, and almost rhymes with Tuvok) Obama is a Vulcan. Tricky of him to use the ''He's a Moslem'' straw man rumors to keep us all distracted form his extraterrestrial origins. I always thought his ears looked kind funny. Thanks to all the racists out there for helping the aliens' vile deception.

I quote from Newsweek:

''It's the Spock plot strands that give the new "Trek" its best shot at once again commanding the zeitgeist. Spock's cool, analytical nature feels more fascinating and topical than ever now that we've put a sort of Vulcan in the White House. All through the election campaign, columnists compared President Obama's unflappably logical demeanor and prominent ears with Mr. Spock's. But as Spock's complicated racial backstory is spun out in detail in the new "Trek"—right back into childhood—the Obama parallels keep deepening. Like Obama, Spock is the product of a mixed marriage (actually, an interstellar mixed marriage), and he suffers blunt manifestations of prejudice as a result. As played by Zachary Quinto, the young Spock loves his human mother, but longs to assimilate completely into his Vulcan father Sarek's ways, eschewing messy emotions the way all Vulcans do. Young Spock is constantly being told by Vulcans and humans alike that he's either seething with inappropriate emotions—indeed, he takes Kirk by the throat at one point—or that he's not emotional enough and shouldn't be so repressed. Obama may or may not be a fan—the White House says he isn't, but Trekkies have claimed him as one of their breed ever since he said, "I grew up on 'Star Trek'—I believe in the final frontier," at a campaign stop last year. If he does check out the new movie, I can imagine he might feel a special empathy for Spock's position, given the chattering class's insistence that he needs to show more emotion, too.''

It's amazing what passes for journalism these days,ainahey.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
