George Takei Live Blogs the 2018 Midterm Elections
“Oh myyy!” Nope. Oh yesss! Star Trek legend and Howard Stern Show announcer George Takei is officially live blogging the 2018 midterm elections on Second Nexus. Utilizing Spot.IM’s innovative live blogging technology, George Takei is beyond prepared to take his loyal followers and soon-to-be followers through the circus that is Election Day in America. November 6, 2018 is going to be a historic day no matter what. Why not spend it with someone as special as George Takei?
As his website stirringly points out, “George Takei is best known for his portrayal of Mr. Sulu in the acclaimed television and film series Star Trek. He’s an actor, social justice activist, social media mega-power, originated the role of Sam Kimura and Ojii-Chan in the Broadway musical Allegiance, and subject of To Be Takei, a documentary on his life and career.”
“Now a community activist, George Takei serves as chair of the council of governors of East West Players, the nation’s foremost Asian Pacific American theater. He is also a member of the Human Rights Campaign, the largest national lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender political organization. Takei is Chairman Emeritus of the Japanese American National Museum’s Board of Trustees; a member of the US-Japan Bridging Foundation Board of Directors; and served on the Board of the Japan-United States Friendship Commission under President Bill Clinton. In recognition of his contribution to the Japan-United States relationship, in 2004, Takei was conferred with the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold Rays with Rosette, by His Majesty, the Emperor of Japan.”
With his signature style and crystal clear credentials (please read the last two paragraphs again), George Takei is the unconventional live blogger we all need right now. Get ready to board the U.S.A. Enterprise, democrats and republicans! We’re pretty certain President Donald Trump will be tweeting about this live blog.
