President Obama is a Geek

This totally cracked me up:

John Hodgman at Radio & TV Correspondents' Dinner

Quote highlights:
"Speaking of Supreme Court Nominees, strict constructionists, [are] jocks. Anyone who believes that they know the original intent of the framers of the Constitution are obviously jocks, because a.) they hate hippies, and b.) they neglect the fact that the Constitution is perhaps the most geeky document of all time. It is essentially the Frequently Asked Questions list of the United States that was written by monied, sickly, bookish, bi-focal wearing nerds who believed that God was a distant, uncaring Dungeon Master."
"It is an exciting time to be a nerd... at this very moment the fate of Iran is strangely entwined with the sleep schedules of the geeks who maintain the servers at Twitter and Youtube."

  1. That's a pretty well done presentation! Keeping humor in the mix is very important, I think!
