[YouTube Link] It's like the White House Correspondents' Dinner, only less prestigious. President Obama was in attendance, and John Hodgman's address was largely concerned with his role as the "first nerd president". I prefer the term "geek". That word originates from carnival sideshow performers who used to bite off the heads of chickens, and so somehow seems more appropriate, at least for myself. But regardless, Obama then goes on to fail Hodgman's tests of true geek status.
His praise for Obama is a bit over-the-top at times -- well, maybe just for me, since I didn't vote for him -- but the speech is still quite funny.
