Jock vs Nerd (updated)

In light of Chipsticks' homage to our President's jockishness, I feel the need to counter with this:

Obama the Nerd



Oh, and by the way, Steve Benen and Ezra Klein (certainly the definition of nerdiness) are with me on this one.

For the record, President Obama has collected Spider-Man comics; he knows the name of Superman’s father; he’s a fan of Star Trek; and can, rather effortlessly, offer a Vulcan salute. I distinctly remember laughing shortly after the ‘08 election when Ezra Klein wrote, “Obama is by far the most culturally awesome president this country has witnessed…. Forget beers: This is a president I could play Halo 3 with.”

As further evidence...

I rest my case.

UPDATE: I found some more photographic evidence.

OK, so that last one is photoshopped. But don't tell me you haven't heard it before.
