This legal brief defending the right to use the Klingon language…

…is everything that you dreamed it would be. EVERYTHING. I’m perhaps prejudiced by my upbringing and inclinations, but: I don’t think Paramount has a great case, here. I don’t know that they don’t have a case at all, because I’m not a lawyer – but I don’t know what they expect to get out of it, either.

Via Popehat.

PS: No, I’m not going to make any puns in Klingon. I don’t speak it.

Merrick Garland nomination still stagnating.

The Washington Free Beacon puts it pretty succinctly: “Merrick Garland is no closer to confirmation as the next Supreme Court justice than he was at the beginning of April despite a sustained campaign by President Obama’s personal advocacy group financed by some of the country’s top Democratic donors.” Basically, if it hasn’t been made clear by now: if there’s going to be any movement on this nomination, it’s not going to come from the Democratic side. Particularly if it comes from Organizing for Action, which is apparently better at organizing than it is at action.

…I had more to add, but: suffice it to say that there is currently one person who I would trust to pick our next Supreme Court Justice, and that person is named ‘Ted Cruz.’ It’s in everybody’s best interest that Cruz be doing that pick. From the Oval Office.

I know that I’m supposed to be infuriated by this ‘Snowden’ trailer…

…but Jesus but it looks bad.

I mean, didn’t anybody tell Joseph Gordon-Levitt that he shouldn’t have made it sound like Snowden had recently had a stroke and didn’t quite make it to the hospital before his Golden Hour was up?

PS: Hey, look, Nick Cage! In an Oliver Stone movie! Yeah, there’s no way that’s gonna go surreal.

Tweet of the Day, Planned Parenthood HATES The Idea of Cruz/Fiorina edition.

You can’t buy this kind of helpful antipathy. It’s practically an in-kind contribution, really. And just in time for Indiana, too.

My RedState post on the Manafort/Lewandowski War.

Found here. Short version: yeah, I know that the dude just won a bunch of Northeast primaries by a bunch, but his campaign is still having an internal civil war.  One that’s getting leaked to Politico with great vim and vigor. I am forced to admit that it’s entertaining to see… well, no, I’m not really being forced to admit that, am I?

Yeah, looks like Twitter’s gonna be real nasty tonight.

Not the vote results themselves, but the reactions to them. You know something? I’ve decided that I don’t particularly need to read ’em. Masochism ain’t my thing.

My RedState post on the NC Voter ID challenge.

Found here. Short version: the courts tossed yet another challenge to Voter ID laws, this time in North Carolina. You’d think that the Left would get bored with this, but apparently not.

My strategic voting in Maryland.

I used this guide: John Kasich is in second place in Maryland, which clarified matters somewhat. Kasich canceling two public events in Indiana today clarified them still more. Besides, if I’m telling people to suck it up and vote strategically, well, do as I say AND as I do.

Also: if you live in Pennsylvania, this is your delegate guide.

PS: Yeah, I know: I was arguing voting straight Cruz as recently as last week. Circumstances changed. And those vegetables aren’t going to eat themselves.

My RedState post on Ted Cruz’s second-level delegate game.

Found here. Short version: the way things are going, Ted Cruz will have a LOT of power over the actual infrastructure of the convention. It’s not just the Presidential balloting that’s in play, here.

RRH Elections’ strategic voting guide for Pennsylvania.

Found here. Pennsylvania tomorrow is going to be a godawful mess in terms of figuring out who got what in terms of delegates; the majority of delegates are running as technical independents in individual CDs, unbound to any delegate.  A lot of ’em are running on the principle of ‘whoever wins statewide/my district,’ which would be laudable any other election cycle and I’m personally not thrilled that it’s not really laudable now. This is a grim slog that we’re on, and it’s going to go on for the next month.

Anyway, if you’re a PA voter the link will lead you to a breakdown by CD of delegate candidates, and how they plan to vote at the convention. Choose accordingly. And don’t skip the delegate section entirely.  It’s important.

Tweet of the Day, Why I Won’t Fight In A Burning Building edition.

As the Klingons will tell you: that’s what fools do.

Those are ‘dive out the window before the generator explodes’ numbers, in fact. If I look at ’em too long, I feel SAN points starting to loosen. They’re downright unnerving.
