Getting rid of Klingons

I can't believe I missed this one ...

When members of Bush's foreign policy team called themselves Vulcans, they were thinking of the Roman armourer of the gods. Democrat David Wu wasn't. He gave the reference a contemporary twist in his speech to the House. I hope it was parody. (But if it weren't, once Jon Stewart and The Daily Show finished with it, Wu would have been mad to argue that he'd meant it any other way.)
