Holy mixed metaphor, Batman

President Obama’s geek cred is on the wane after he said this earlier today:

“Even though most people agree that I’m being reasonable; that most
people agree I’m presenting a fair deal; the fact they don’t take it
means I should somehow do a Jedi mind meld with these folks and convince
them to do what’s right.”

Uh, Mr. President there’s a Vulcan mind meld and there are Jedi mind tricks. One is Star Trek, the other is Star Wars but the trekkies got there first. The Tweeter Tubeis, quite predictably, going bonkers right now since they’ve finally gotten over Seth MacFarlane, and have moved on to the latest hive mind snark fest like rabid Borg bjorn again…

The Prez needs to call JJ Abrams immediately to serve as his bridge between these diverse nerdly kingdoms. I’m more of a Trekker myself but I can imagine all the mixed sci-fi imagery we’ll be subjected to when the BSG, Babylon 5 and even Lost In Space fans start chiming in.

Make it so, Dr. Smith, and so say we all that resistance is futile.

I could go on all day like this but y’all have done nothing to deserve that. Plus, I don’t want to end up in Deep Shit 9 since our editrix is on her way home to Ferret central…

    I thought perhaps POTUS was saying it on purpose, that even with the power of a Jedi and a Vulcan, he couldn’t sway the Republicans toward sanity. But then, I’m a bit of an Obot.

    I think he caught a glimpse of the Silence in mid-sentence, forgetting what he was going to say. I hope this satisfies the comment about needing a Dr. Who reference.
