John Hodgman at the Correspondents' Dinner

Somehow I missed this video from the 2009 Radio and TV Correspondents' Dinner. Mr. Hodgman roasted the president for being a "nerd", referencing his place in popular culture and passion for comics and science fiction.

You are not going to believe this, but I watched it here in Cairo. We have C-SPAN! Yes, on the ORBIT Teevee, and we also get MSNBC, with Morning Joe live (it's on at 1:00PM here). I love John Hodgman!

BTW, I saw Obama live in Cairo & have many pictures posted on flickr. Just an FYI - I noticed you didn't do a post on it, but it was reeaal! (Yes, I am out whoring - we are in a recession.)

That's awesome! I totally forgot about asking you about Obama's visit.

In fact, I'm going to post something about it and link to your article and to your Flickr pics.

I like how you included "fear and panic" in your post's labels!

'fear and panic" is for anything that induces some sort of irrational hysteria.
