Before the festivities formally again, let me take a moment to again sing the praises of William Shatner. Yes, Kirk was awesome - but let us not forget the cool efficiency of TJ Hooker. But even moreso, Shatner has made a career out of mocking himself, and/or others at the same time. For a great example of this, look up on the Google machine "Shatner Palin Spoken Word" and let the laughs commence - think Shatner's version of "Lucy in the sky with diamonds".
And here we witness the real power of the Shat - famewhore Palin getting an autograph. Ha.
