John Hodgman Tests the President's Geek Mettle
I never thought I'd see a Correspondent's Dinner more entertaining than Stephen Colbert's (though, he still holds the record for ballsiest-that's for damn sure). That is until John Hodgman catered his speech specifically for me; and, of course, you by proxy. Among his many considerable "firsts", Barack Obama has been called the first "nerd president". John Hodgman challenges this statement, in what is surely to be the geekiest thing you'll ever see on CSPAN... other than pretty much anything else on CSPAN. Its long, but I promise its worth it.
