The Force is Strong with Obama

Posted by John Wellington Ennis

(I just posted a pic yesterday from the same bookstore browse by Obama, but this is for completely different reasons.)

As observed by John Hodgman in his address at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, President Obama is indeed the first modern Nerd President, as evidenced by his adulation of Superman, his propensity for personal gadgetry, and his choice in pants.  This photo of Obama at the register with a pop-up Star Wars book (money in hand) suggests that even if he did not buy this impressive pop-up volume and unwrap it immediately on board Air Force One—when he could be all by himself at last!—his scrutiny belies a know-it-all fan’s dubious inclinations: “Yeah, but is Boba Fett in this??”
