Kerry’s Star Trek

23 Sep

Why am I confident that Kerry is going to win? He's already ahead in Iowa. More importantly, he is winning an important Oregon demographic:

Even as John Kerry struggles to establish national-security credentials nationally, an exclusive WW straw poll shows his campaign dominating one skeptical, warlike demographic: Klingons.

The poll, conducted when the DVD release of the Star Trek fan documentary Trekkies 2 attracted Portland's Klingon community to Tower Records on Southeast 102nd Avenue, may spell trouble for President George W. Bush.

The incumbent has staked his campaign on the war on terror. But those who speak the language of the Trek warrior race–known to disdain dishonor, or quvHa'ghach–seem alienated by Iraq and other issues.

According to the poll of eight local Klingons, a whopping 75 percent support the Democratic nominee.

Two Klingons polled–or 25 percent–said they planned to write in Satan.

Bush scored an abysmal zero percent in the poll.

Yeah, we are going to win.
