Video: Bombshell charge — “There are Klingons in the White House”

posted at 5:47 pm on January 11, 2007 by Allahpundit

Not just any Klingons, either. Faux Klingons. The worst kind.

Bush. Must. Answer.

Thanks to Martin for the tip. And to Rep. David Wu (D-Ore.) for taking the war hella seriously.

Update: Here’s one for Wu: “may’ Daa jaHDI’ SuvwI’ juppu’ Daj lonbe.”

Update: I can’t believe this moron actually managed to wring a chickenhawk slur out of such a sub-retarded analogy.

I guess when you’ve got dashing ne’er-do-well Starfleet Captain Glenn Ellison Ellers steering your Enterprise, you can afford to toss rhetorical grenades like this.

Klingons? Bah. This guy is so lame. Everyone knows its Ferengi.

Nethicus on January 11, 2007 at 5:50 PM

Reality based community indeed.

OMG, my nine year old loves that joke!
What do star trek and toilet paper have in common?

bbz123 on January 11, 2007 at 5:50 PM

Both ended up going down the toilet?

Mibrilane on January 11, 2007 at 5:52 PM

Wow. Chickenhawk Klingons. Who knew?

jeffNWV on January 11, 2007 at 5:52 PM

“… But unlike the real Klingons of Star Trek…”

Give us more!!!!

Editor on January 11, 2007 at 5:52 PM

LOL M!
They both circle Uranus looking for Klingons of course.
Try the Venusian Veal ! Im’ here for a full circle!

bbz123 on January 11, 2007 at 5:54 PM

Thank goodness the democrats don’t know we have a secret pact with the Romulans and have leased several of their Bird of Prey starships … with cloaking device.

darwin on January 11, 2007 at 5:54 PM

What a childish dork.

Does ANYONE think that the dimocraps have our best interests at heart when it comes to protection?

Mazztek on January 11, 2007 at 5:55 PM

is it possible to make fun of that? if my intent was to satarize a democrat, what could i write which would eclipse this?

jummy on January 11, 2007 at 5:55 PM

In the famous words of Otter,jummy,

“Just let him go,he’s on a roll”

bbz123 on January 11, 2007 at 5:57 PM

Man, I remember the days when Jim Traficant had the Congressional lock on Star Trek riffs. Of course, that was many Stardates ago…

Ed Driscoll on January 11, 2007 at 6:02 PM

All your Faux Klingons belong to us!

PinkyBigglesworth on January 11, 2007 at 6:11 PM

OMG, my senators suck so bad.

Anwyn on January 11, 2007 at 6:12 PM

Wu-Tang Clan ain’t nothin’ to f- with!

Kid from Brooklyn on January 11, 2007 at 6:16 PM

Sulu, STFD and STFU. Star Trek nerd.

journeyscarab on January 11, 2007 at 6:16 PM

Congratulations Oregon for electing Rep. David Wu…. Really it’s not even funny just to make fun of you, it’s disgusting and sad that this is truly the leadership and a perfect example of the Democratic Party. Once again, as long as the Dems insist on dividing the country and promising defeat, we will lose… not because we can’t win it militarily, but because the terrorists/insurgents are essentially campaign operatives for the DNC and they now how to play it. Has anyone else noticed how vicious virtually every Democrat who can find a mic has been since Bush’s speech not even 24 hours ago? Cavuto had an excellent montage earlier.

RightWinged on January 11, 2007 at 6:17 PM

They let anyone into politics these days…

Hack Ptui on January 11, 2007 at 6:17 PM

I’m embarrassed to say that he’s a representative from my home state. Hopefully Darlene Hooley will whip on him for embarrassing the Oregon Democratic Party.

jeffshultz on January 11, 2007 at 6:18 PM

I saw that giant, square, Asian head in the screen cap and said out loud, “Please don’t let this be David Wu.”

I guess when you look like a bobblehead figure, all that head-bouncing causes most of the sense to fall out. Trying to outdo Gordon Smith for “Biggest Head Up One’s Own Ass in Oregon” award seems to take a toll as well.

To Wu I say:
nuq Daq ‘oH puchp”e’
(Where is the bathroom?)

PaisleyCow on January 11, 2007 at 6:23 PM

I take only slight comfort in knowing I didn’t vote for him. I should have written in Mr. Spock.

PaisleyCow on January 11, 2007 at 6:25 PM

It’s no wonder pitiful Pelosi and the other libs want to pass legislation that curtails CSPAN, Sean Hannity, etc., so stuff like this wont be broadcasted and further damages their already sorry behinds.

“Ka’plaah!”

kevcad on January 11, 2007 at 6:26 PM

“Unlike the real Klingons…”

WTF? Who elected this guy?

flipflop on January 11, 2007 at 6:28 PM

Yep, between Wu and Gordo Smith, Oregon will be known for sending some of the biggest idiots (Biden and Specter still take the cake) of either party to DC.

jeffshultz on January 11, 2007 at 6:29 PM

Klingons, maybe, but this guy is Lost in Space.

Attila (Pillage Idiot) on January 11, 2007 at 6:30 PM

Beam him up Scotty … now!

naliaka on January 11, 2007 at 6:30 PM

Someone send Honora over to my house to shoot me.

Is there a cure for BDS? Does it come in a pill? Or is it called Election cycle 2008 where we replace BDS for Romney DS or such?

E L Frederick (Sniper One) on January 11, 2007 at 6:34 PM

Try the Venusian Veal ! I’m here for a full circle!

bbz123 on January 11, 2007 at 5:54 PM

Heh.

“Don’t forget to tip your waitress; these girls are working their ears off!”

Jaibones on January 11, 2007 at 6:37 PM

Oh, I’m sure that we’ll see the merciless berating of Senator Wu’s intelligence and disengagement from what real working people in America think on The Daily Show tonight…

…or maybe tomorrow. I’m sure they’ll get around to it since, you know, those guys at TDS are so fair-minded.

ScottMcC on January 11, 2007 at 6:38 PM

You know what, that sounds pretty good at this point.

honora, when E L F is done, come over and shoot me, too…

Jaibones on January 11, 2007 at 6:39 PM

Wow! Faux Klingons!
Thank you Oregon! You make us look better.
We here in Massachusetts only have Jon Carry and Teddy (D-runk).

shermacman on January 11, 2007 at 6:46 PM

So , the Hitler thing has gotten worn out?
What is the new Klingon rule for political discourse?

bbz123 on January 11, 2007 at 6:48 PM

Holy Crap

Wade on January 11, 2007 at 6:50 PM

I amazed. While some Americans stood the watch and walked patrol, this idiot went to Stanford, on the tax-payer’s dime, got high and watched Star Trek re-runs. Now he thinks he has the strategic and tactical insight to dictate policy? P-L-E-A-S-E!

To the people of Oregon; this is what happens when you don’t protect your southern border.

MCPO Airdale on January 11, 2007 at 6:51 PM

Democrats: Strong. Intergalactic.

Hoodlumman on January 11, 2007 at 6:52 PM

So , the Hitler thing has gotten worn out?

Shhhhhhh. Don’t tell anyone, but Herr Hitler was a closet Klingon.

BacaDog on January 11, 2007 at 6:55 PM

WTF!!??!!

Galactic moron alert… I think that guy has been “beamed up” too many times.

x95b10 on January 11, 2007 at 6:55 PM

So Bush can be defeated by Tribbles? Are democrats not brave enough to buy a tribble and give it to the president? If not, how are they capable of managing the war on terror?

lorien1973 on January 11, 2007 at 7:04 PM

“So Bush can be defeated by Tribbles?”

That’s funny

darwin on January 11, 2007 at 7:07 PM

Does this mean that Bush gets to kiss Condi in the White House ?

bbz123 on January 11, 2007 at 7:07 PM

“Unlike the real Klingons…”

WTF? Who elected this guy?

flipflop on January 11, 2007 at 6:28 PM

Yeah, shades of “Unlike the real hobbits.” or “Unlike the real unicorns.”

That’s a prediction, by the way.

Dusty on January 11, 2007 at 7:10 PM

Yea, so there are Klingons in the White House, there are Borg running Congress now, your point is….

vcferlita on January 11, 2007 at 7:13 PM

Wait until Jean-Luc Picard hears about this …

darwin on January 11, 2007 at 7:15 PM

Sweet mother McCree, don’t you realise that if there are Klingons here in the 21st century, then they are clearly in violation of the Temporal Prime Directive.

More Importantly…

Wasn’t KHAN supposed to have taken over the world like 10 years ago in the 1990s?

KHAAAAAAAAN!!!!

Jones Zemkophill on January 11, 2007 at 7:18 PM

Wasn’t KHAN supposed to have taken over the world like 10 years ago in the 1990s?

KHAAAAAAAAN!!!!

Jones Zemkophill

Yes, now that you mention it. This guy must have been living in his mother’s basement until he was elected.

Bets?

CrimsonFisted on January 11, 2007 at 7:27 PM

Mr. Sulu, tell Wu he must be out of his Vulcan mind..dammit Jim, I’m a wu not a vulcan general…..somebody in that chamber should have given him the spock-hold and put Wu down…

I can hear William Shattner now, “get off me Leonard”…

Live long and prosper!

Kaplah!

Kini on January 11, 2007 at 7:53 PM

Aw c’mon people, give him a break… everyone knows Mr Sulu HATES Klingons. Now if only he had a Uranium PU-36 Explosive Space Modulator, he could fix everything wrong in the entire Universe!

sheesh

SilverStar830 on January 11, 2007 at 7:57 PM

Someone needs sensitivity training for his Klingonophobia.

rw on January 11, 2007 at 8:01 PM

Unbelievable. A fantasy-show reference repeatedly made to prove a point on the floor of Congress. Well, I can officially add that to my list of reasons to die.

thedecider on January 11, 2007 at 8:01 PM

Well, I can officially add that to my list of reasons to die.

Good news! In Oregon you have the legal right to make that death happen, with the assistance of a physician!

Anwyn on January 11, 2007 at 8:16 PM

Bah! Typical, spineless Federa…I mean, Democrat petaQ!

Blacklake on January 11, 2007 at 8:16 PM

SAM DONALDSON IS A ROMULAN!! That’s been known for years though.

MirCat on January 11, 2007 at 8:22 PM

Ladies and Gentlemen….I give you the Democratic Party for 2007.
What a gift to the nation.

right2bright on January 11, 2007 at 8:41 PM

Oh, for cryin’ out loud!

Now a left wing, liberal Democrats is reduced to pretending their are Vulcans and Klingons in the White House!

What a crock!

Who elected THIS guy to office? A group of Trekkies at a Star Trek Convention?

To Star Trek lovers, those transporters are dangerous for you.

Why?

Because they disassemble your atoms and send a copy of your original self and reassemble the copy at a specific destination. The original you no longer exists.

I would not use one of those transporters, because, essentially you are allowing yourself to be copied, the original destroyed, and the copy reassembled. You no longer exist.

Get a grip, Trekkies.

Klingons in the White House.

Alligators in the sewers.

Alien abductions.

Islam is the Religion of Peace, Love, Compassion, Goodness, and Mercy.

Christianity, Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism are religions of violence, hatred, perversion, and badness.

The loonatics are out of the assylum.

William2006 on January 11, 2007 at 8:46 PM

Thank you to the Representative from the state of Oregon. I busted a gut when he started to pound his finger on the podium. If anyone draws him in a cartoon he would be a man without a point.

ChrisIansNana on January 11, 2007 at 8:47 PM

Khaaan!!!!!

Opinionnation on January 11, 2007 at 8:49 PM

Khaaan!!!!!

LMAO!!!

x95b10 on January 11, 2007 at 8:58 PM

Better have Scotty check the transporter circuits- this guy’s brain has been scrambled.

Scotsman on January 11, 2007 at 9:04 PM

Wuuuuuuuu!!!!!

PaisleyCow on January 11, 2007 at 9:04 PM

Anyone bothered by the fact that Democrat Congressmen are more familiar with the nuanced differences between Klingons and Romulans than they are between Sunni and Shia?

billy on January 11, 2007 at 9:04 PM

Boba Fett pwn3s Klingons anyways.

lorien1973 on January 11, 2007 at 9:20 PM

And lightweights like this guy insult Bush’s intelligence? I just can’t imagine how anybody could think it was a great idea to get up and say that in front of a roomful of people, let alone on C-SPAN. (Well, except on a bet.) Save it for the Trekkie convention, Wu.

ReubenJCogburn on January 11, 2007 at 9:24 PM

Oregon WAS the state that hired a klingon interpreter for its mental patients…so really it makes sense

http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/West/05/10/offbeat.klingon.interpreter/index.html

He’s probably a patient.

lorien1973 on January 11, 2007 at 9:27 PM

So long Oregon, and thanks for the fish.

Now taking applications for replacemnt State… Apply within.

CBarker on January 11, 2007 at 9:36 PM

Time to replace Oregon with Guam or maybe revive the lost State of Franklin or somesuch.

major john on January 11, 2007 at 9:45 PM

Since “Wu” in Chinese means “without” (or, literally “not have“) we can now be sure that this guy is one of the proliferating political clan of the “Wu-brains“.

(Klinging desperately to the metaphors of his childhood.)

In Congress, it’s now the Wu-wei or the highway.

(With apologies to Lao Tse.)

profitsbeard on January 11, 2007 at 9:57 PM

I reject your reality and substitute my own….

serenity on January 11, 2007 at 10:01 PM

Did he just say Faux Klingons

did a Us Representative ssay “Unlike the Klingons who have fought wars”

What next Jedi Logic?

EricPWJohnson on January 11, 2007 at 10:11 PM

Klingons? Bah. This guy is so lame. Everyone knows its Ferengi.

Nethicus on January 11, 2007 at 5:50 PM

But not everyone knows “ferengi” is from the Arabic word for a European trader.

Kralizec on January 11, 2007 at 10:12 PM

I thought the Sith were in the White House.

Patrick Chester on January 11, 2007 at 10:27 PM

Does he speak Klingon, too?
Among the high schoolers around here, speaking Klingon is synonomous with “loser.”
LOL! Chickenhawk Klingons!jeffNWV on January 11, 2007 at 5:52 PM

naliaka on January 11, 2007 at 10:46 PM

“Unlike teh real Klingons on StarTrek” OMG you just know this guy wears “starfleet” jammies to bed and still lives in his parents basement.

Waiting for Jack Bauer to get back from imprisonment in China to fix all this crap.

Buzzy on January 11, 2007 at 11:08 PM

May the swartz be with you!

Kini on January 11, 2007 at 11:14 PM

I understand there were some Klingons hanging around Uranus!

Kini on January 11, 2007 at 11:17 PM

What about the Cylons? And not the new ones! I want classic Cylons!

journeyscarab on January 12, 2007 at 12:02 AM

journeyscarab on January 12, 2007 at 12:02 AM

How do you say “incredibly stupid idiot” in Klingon?

What, did his mom let him move out of the basement only after he was elected to congress?

Please, give us more of your Star Trek wisdom!

Black Adam on January 12, 2007 at 12:48 AM

what a wackjob!

georgej on January 12, 2007 at 1:16 AM

The REAL question here is do the Democrats have possession of the Genesis device, and if so, are they willing to use it?

JG2K6 on January 12, 2007 at 2:10 AM

I think The View is having Klingons on tomorrow….oh my bad….it’s ROSIE!

Limerick on January 12, 2007 at 2:18 AM

She’s more of a horta. Bawbawa is a Bolian, Behar is a Ferengi, and Elisabeth is an irresistable Orion slave girl.

Savage on January 12, 2007 at 2:34 AM

Now playing at the Portland Multiplex: Trekkies Go To Washington.

Spiny Norman on January 12, 2007 at 3:40 AM

Look for the following chant to replace “Bush lied! People died!” in the Portland area:

BUSH’S EVIDENCE FOR THE IRAQ WAR WAS SELECTIVE!
HE VIOLATED THE PRIME DIRECTIVE!

Sean M. on January 12, 2007 at 4:49 AM

The last election gave the Dems enough rope……

Janos Hunyadi on January 12, 2007 at 5:04 AM

Up next in the “first 100 hours” of the Dem-controlled congress: A bill that will finally settle the Kirk v. Picard debate.

Sean M. on January 12, 2007 at 5:39 AM

I wish I had a star destroyer. First of all I would name it something cool… something the US Navy hasn’t done in a century… and then I’d blow up the Star Strek Enterprise, because Star Trek suxx.

My girlfriends ex-husband liked star trek, and he turned into a sex offender. Question the timing.

Ringmaster on January 12, 2007 at 7:05 AM

Rigmaster,
The gf/ex-hubby issue nowithstanding, the Enterprise would kick an Imperial star destroyer’s a$$.

Star Trek ships have shields Star Destroyers do not. In terms of weapons, Federation ships have Phasers. Any anyone who is anyone knows that Phasers are an order of magnitude or two more powerful than lasers.

Whew! I have been waiting twenty years to get that out.

CrankyNeocon on January 12, 2007 at 8:05 AM

Star Destroyers have shields, thats what the golfballs are for.

And Star Destroyers don’t have lasers, they got green shooty thingys. And they’re much more powerful than your orange maglight.

And TIE fighters are so nifty.

Ringmaster on January 12, 2007 at 8:25 AM

CrankyNeocon

Best debate ever.

I’ve got to side with Ringmaster, though. Between the ability to unleash squadrons of TIE fighters and the mega guns, a Star Destroyer would blast the Enterprise into dust.

But what if you put a Star Destroyer against a Borg cube?
