David Wu

Rep. David Wu brings some much needed Star Trek fandom to the capital, arguing that unlike the wise and logical Vulcans, the administration has behaved like a pack of war-hungry Klingons.

Nonsense, the Bush Administration and it’s followers are the Borg. And us with no Captain Janeway and the diverse crew of the Voyager to help us.

We are very proud of Rep. Wu here in Oregon.  As the first Asian-American person to serve in the U.S. Congress he stands for integrity and good government, which obviously makes him an opponent of the sleazy nest of rats in the Cheney administration.

Thank you Rep. David Wu!

NCBlueneck is correct.  Bush & Co. are Ferengi, and Rep. David Wu is the unkown, sacrificial Ensign going ont he Away Team.

The analogy is not quite right, the Klingons had honor.  The Administration has none.  I think a closesr analogy would be to compare them to the Ferengi.
