Nobody ever accuses Ted Cruz of being smart.

'By the book' was code, but still following the book.

Quit shiatting in the queue.

Quit being cool, Ted. You can't make me like you.

In Star Trek II (Wrath of Kahn - the best of the series), when Kirk says "by the book" it's code to mean he's lying.


Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home was the best because reasons, and because I worked on it.

Dumbass.

Kirk was an excellent captain.  Khan's genetically engineered intellect was far superior to any human's.  The only reason Kirk defeated him was because Kirk didn't believe in no win situations and he knew about Federation protocol that wasn't in Federation technical manuals which Khan had memorized long ago.

Regulation 46A: If transmissions were being monitored during battle, no uncoded messages were to be transmitted on an open channel.

And Kirk learned his lesson after Space Seed where he gave unfettered access to the Enterprise computer to Khan because why the f*ck not.

Watching Ted Cruz emulate a human is like feeding pop culture and cat poop into the world's shiattiest AI generator.
 
2020-05-19 10:24:12 PM  
In Star Wars II (The Empire Strikes Back - the best of the series), when Luke says "I know" it's code to mean he prefers wookiies.

DaFuq? What does a work I'd function have to do with the reality that everything Rice did was on the up and up?

Spock utilizes the code, but Kirk is the one to actually explain it's significance.  I'd give him a point for being in the ballpark.

I mean what exactly do you do when 1/3rd of the polity wants to live in their own universe that only incidentally aligns with observable reality?

I'm serious: how in the hell do you deal with 1 out of every 3 adults being out to farking lunch whenever anything vaguely resembling politics comes up?

I got $5 on Cruz being one of the derp posters in the Picard Plinkett thread.
 
2020-05-20 3:24:45 AM  
Wait a minute.  Cruz is saying Obama is like Spock and this is a bad thing?
 
2020-05-20 3:24:51 AM  
No it didn't you farking imbecile.  It meant Spock was speaking in code, a code that "the book" required be used when secure communication wasn't possible, which it wasn't because Khan was listening in with his stolen Starfleet ship, and which he actually described right then and there hoping that Khan's unfamiliarity with regulations would cause him to miss the hint.

Are you suggesting that Obama was speaking in code to Comey, a code that FBI regulations require be used during meetings between the President and the director of the FBI in the White House because reasons?  And that his coded message was "I'm not telling you what to do, but whatever you do should be strictly by the book?"  I can certainly see how a crazy person could interpret that as "I order you to spy on Trump."
 
2020-05-20 3:25:38 AM  
Well, my days of not taking Ted Cruz seriously are certainly coming to a middle.

Ok, one more.  Smart and funny women are sexy enough in my book, but Madeline Kahn took it to 11.

The thing is that Ted Cruz isn't actually stupid.  He just knows that his voters are and he doesn't mind telling them whatever they might believe if it's politically convenient.

Wrath of Kahn was when Mel Brooks cut one of her scenes from Young Frankenstein.

There's been a shift from "laughing in our faces with this shiat" to "drowning in the stink of their own desperation and fear."

No, not stupid.

Completely out of touch?  Clueless?  And tone deaf?

Yea, those.
