Congressman Wu Woos Nerds

I'll just paste the text of Congressman David Wu's (D-OR) speech on the House floor below. You can watch him actually say these words at Hit & Run.
Now, this president has listened to some people -- the so-called "Vulcans" in the White House. The ideologues. But you know, unlike the Vulcans of Star Trek who make their decisions based on logic and fact, these guys make it on ideology. These aren't Vulcans! There are Klingons in the White House! But unlike the real Klingons of Star Trek, these Klingons have never fought a battle of their own. Don't let faux Klingons send real Americans to war. It's wrong.
I suspect - but cannot prove yet - that a family member was kidnapped and he was told by the kidnappers to use the word "Vulcan" on the House floor to prove that he was under their control. I think I saw that on an episode of "24". Speaking of "24", I'll be glued to my couch on Sunday and Monday watching the two 2-hour episodes.
