So awesome

OK, this goes too deep for me. I'm a geek, but my powers are mere cantrips in the presence of this master:

Obama knows more Star Trek trivia than you ever will. He just doesn't see the need to talk about it and scare off the women.

Obama would spend his time with Michelle and the girls whenever he came home from the campaign. And then would stay up all night watching MST3K episodes when they went to sleep.

Obama wants to start his inaugural address with "I have come here to govern wisely and chew bubble gum."

Obama knows that Hal Jordan is the best Green Lantern. But he'd rather hang with Kyle.

Uhm, no. He prefers John Stewart.
