Skip to comments.Obama's Jedi vs Vulcan Mind Meld Gaffe: It's All About His Ears!!!
Posted on 03/04/2013 8:30:02 AM PST by NOBO2012
I thought I could side-step the Jedi-Vulcan-mind field blowup from last Friday. Butt you know how geeks are, they just wont let it die.
The take-away from that presser was supposed to be I AM NOT A DICTATOR which worked pretty good for awhile. Then all the geeks, counter-geeks and presidential pundits had to weigh in.
Pull your pantaloons up, my little Jedi warrior
Next thing you know were getting analyses of whether the mix up of Jedi mind tricks with Vulcan mind-meld was purposeful, to demonstrate that Big Guys too cool to be a nerdy sci-fi geek. That argument was immediately countered by the nerdy sci-fi geeks - who really want to own this guy - that there is such a thing as a Jedi mind-meld, its just technically known as a Force-meld.
Again, whenever BO makes a gaffe like this (or all of these), you can blame TOTUS: either for not keeping up with him (who can?), going dark (racist), or scrolling the wrong words as was the case this time.
It wasnt strictly TOTUS fault though; when BOs staff reviewed what the writers were going to have the articulate Won say about the Vulcan mind-meld, they panicked, seeing an onslaught of ear jokes. Knowing how sensitive BO is about his ears, they reloaded his words at the last minute changing it to a Jedi mind-meld.
MoDos still waiting for her invitation to the Big White; so dont tell her how sensitive BO is about his ears.
(snip)My only complaint is that when the big brains around here decided to replace Big Guys Vulcan reference with a Jedi one, they were completely oblivious to the opportunity it presented for another round of far more egregious jokes: Wookies.
Well, as that wise woman said ...Read the Rest Here>>>
Insulted I am, by mistake the Kenyan did make. Expect though, what did you, as in foreign country he was born.
I like what they said on Fox about this:
“What a wookie mistake!”
