George Takei--most famous for playing Mr. Sulu in the original Star Trek TV and movie series--is something of an internet phenomenon. He has almost three million Facebook fans, and has an eye and ear for offbeat humor. He's also got quite the story to tell about his treatment during World War II. And he's backing Barack Obama, and encouraging others--particularly Asian Americans--to do so as well. So, on all counts, I endorse George Takei!
