Obama to Appoint Secretary of Geek Affairs…

… or rather, he should.  Check out Paul and Storm’s thoughts on this.  If you went to DragonCon 2008, these guys were the opening band at the & Quick Stop Entertainment’s “Nuts on the Road: Gonzo Sound & Vision” film festival.

According to Paul and Storm… as the first geek President, Barack Obama would do well to reward this important and influential constituency by creating a new cabinet post: the Secretary of Geek Affairs.  Click here to read the whole article.

As a teaser, check out the 64-team elimination tournament to see who would get the coveted Secretary of Geek Affairs position.  Some of my favorites are:

  • Weird Al vs. Weezer
  • They Might Be Giants vs. The Simpsons Comic Shop Guy
  • Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years) vs. Stan Lee
  • Steve Jobs vs. The Cast of “Revenge of the Nerds”
  • Ken Plume (from Quick Stop Entertainment) vs. MacGyver
  • Penn & Teller vs. Jamie & Adam (Mythbusters)

  1. I know this is in jest, but I can’t stop myself from saying: OBAMA IS NOT A GEEK. He just pandered to them…and they fell for it.

    That said, I think we should eject the whole Bombadil region. Those guys are CRAZY.

  2. “Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years) vs. Stan Lee”

    Stan may have co-created Spider-Man, the FF, the X-Men, Thor, Hulk, Daredevil, the Silver Surfer, etc., but Danica McKeller is super-hot, so…sorry Stan.

    oh, and Sghoul–Obama once made a joke about Dilithium Crystals WHEN HE WAS ALONE WITH HIS WIFE. if that’s not a geek, i don’t what is.

  3. If he was truly alone with his wife when he supposedly told it, how does anyone know about it?

    Michelle told the story at some public event, in response to a question.
