Today! Is. @WilliamShatner ‘s! BIRTHDAY!

He is! Trying to get. ONE MILLION. Followers! This is THE LAST DAY!

OK, I’ll stop now.

Via @MellissaTweets.  I retain a certain fondness for William Shatner, which is largely tied up with my certain fondness for Star Trek: TOS.  Which is to say, I fully recognize that there were large aspects of the entire Star Trek thing that were hokey and silly, but I loved the show as a teenager and I ended up reading a lot of hard science fiction because of it.  So Happy Birthday, William Shatner.

This is still possibly his best performance EVER, though.

Half the right-sphere has linked to this by now, but I’m going to put it up anyway, because I have to quibble with Allahpundit: this isn’t really revenge on Shatner.  He was in on this.

And good on him.

PS: I don’t know if THAT WOMAN is running in 2012.  Based on that clip and other outside observations, I now think that THAT WOMAN is going to be stumping for candidates in 2010.  And that she’s going to be a net benefit for the GOP in doing so.

And if anybody from the Other Side tells you that they’re looking forward for her to do precisely that, ask them in your sweetest, most dulcet tones if they were equally looking forward to us being out of Afghanistan and Iraq by now, too.  Or us closing down FISA.  Or… well, you get the point.

There really isn’t much difference, is there?

Shatner being serious about the Vic-20.

Shatner being Shatner about World of Warcraft.

You have to wonder if he ever wonders how it is that he ended up with a career where his success depends on how well he can imitate himself.  Not that I judge him for that: it’s a living, and at least he’s not selling anything illegal, immoral, or likely to explode.

Please understand: it gives me no pleasure to do these. But you understand that I can’t be seen as being the sort to make idle promises.


Spleen/Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, William Shatner

There’s more like that out there, you know. There’s so, so, so much more.
