Another Great Thing About Barack Obama

He collects Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian comics.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/11/10/obama-collects-comics-50_n_142755.html

That's so cool that I'm willing to forgive him for being a Harry Potter fan.

I bet I have a better Spidey collection than he does, though.

Let's just hope his spider-sense starts to tingle whenever the country is in danger.

Harry steals George's potential customers. In fact, ADWD was delayed until HP interest falls to 0% because else ADWD woudn't be a 100% as his evil plan intended.

Wow, that would be maddeningly nonspecific spidey-sense. He'd never get sleep! "Something... somewhere... is in danger!"

Icon love.

I've always thought it would be nice to have a President who was at least as much of a nerd/geek as I am.

And he knows All Your Base.

I seriously think we're looking at the country's first geek president.

Just having read all the Potter books doesn't mean he's a *fan*. He does have two young daughters, after all. And it became such a part of the culture that he might have felt obligate to read them, at least once.

Or not.

I knew there was something familiar about that man...
While my dad is not black (or even half black), I knew Barak reminded me of my father. Now I know! Both are avid Spider-man and Conan collectors! Sweet. If Barak wasn't my favorite before, he certainly is now!

Apparently at the Leesburg rally (a town near where I live), someone decided that instead of actually asking Barack Obama a question, to simply say, "All your base are belong to us." Barack Obama replied "What you say?" without missing a beat.

NO. WAY. Is that really true?

OMFG, and here I thought I couldn't adore the man any more than I already do.

I hadn't realized you didn't like Harry Potter. I've never read any of them, though, and don't expect to get around to it. I did recently read The Lies of Locke Lamora because someone told me that I'd like it since I like your work. And I saw a blurb from you on it. I blew through it way too fast, though. So if you have any reading recommendations for me to pass the time while I wait for ADWD, they'd be welcome!

Harry Potter's fine-- just nothing compared to your books xD

And I knew I loved Obama.

Bush is still in office. Poor Mr. Obama must not be getting any sleep.

Also, it's not so much that this is a little-known fact so much as it is a little-discussed fact.

Our President-elect was a Constitutional Law professor. If anyone hasn't let that sink in yet, please take time to let it do so.

What's that? Hello again, Constitution. I missed you!

Another Great Thing About GRRM

He publicly hates on Harry Potter.

I personally enjoyed the Harry Potter series (nowhere near as much as Ice and Fire though). If nothing else they inspired more children to read, which is always a good thing, and also means when they grow up they'll be reading your books!
