Politics Is A Dish Best Served Cold

Recently eaten: beef barley soup, avocado, triscuits
Recent annoyance: little socks keep falling down

Bah! This is what the American political system needs! A shakedown, a shakeup, some real blood on the hands. No more veiled threats and rhetoric about killing your enemy and dying with honor, let's just get it out there in the open and butt heads.

Politician Seeks Klingon Votes
A Finnish member of parliament is aiming for re-election by campaigning with a translation of his Web site into Klingon, used in the TV series "Star Trek."

"Some have thought it is blasphemy to mix politics and Klingon," said Jyrki Kasvi, an ardent Trekkie. "Others say it is good if politicians can laugh at themselves."

He said his politics posed some translation difficulties, since Klingon does not have words for matters such as tolerance, or for many colors, including green -- the party under whose banner he is running in the national elections on March 18.

Non-warriors can also access the site in English, Swedish and Finnish.

Hell yeah!
