William Shatner Explains Why Obama Shouldn’t Be More Like Captain Kirk


“Mr. Obama has the onerous burden of obeying the Constitution … Captain Kirk … is a dictator.”William Shatner, during an interview on CNN this morning, when asked by an actual television journalist about if Barack Obama (the President of the United States of America) should be “less like Spock” and “more like Kirk,” both of whom are fictional characters in a decades old science fiction franchise. 1. As Mediaite points out, Mr. Shatner is Canadian and cannot even vote in our elections. 2. What? Why are we talking about this?

    I’m pretty sure Shatner has US citizenship by now, considering that he’s been living here for decades. He should be able to vote (like me!).

    If Barack Obama acted more like Captain Kirk and less like Mr. Spock, he’d also be acting like both of the Bush Men who’d been ruining the US over the course of a number of years…
    The African Americans and anyone else in the US wouldn’t want that, either…

    I think Shatner is right. :)

    That’s a pretty idiotic, leading question, but props to Shatner for giving a well-reasoned response. He’s back in my good books.
