I'm late on this but if you haven't read The Onion's article on President Obama being upset with his Cabinet's lack of Conan Comic Book knowledge, then you gotta' check it out. See here!

Here's an excerpt:
Obama, whose upcoming challenges include organizing a massive effort to rebuild the nation's infrastructure, was reportedly unprepared for the confused silence he received upon suggesting that his cabinet "team up with Taurus of Nemedia" to secure the necessary funding from Congress.

"If my inner circle of advisers can't even communicate about the most basic issues, how are we going to tackle the massive problems our nation faces?" Obama said during a press conference. "When I tell my cabinet that getting bipartisan support is exactly like the time Conan got Taurus to help him steal Yara's jewel, they need to understand what I mean."

After receiving no reaction from the assembled reporters, Obama added, "Because a giant spider is protecting this chamber full of precious jewels, just like Congress is protecting its…. God, how are you people not seeing this?"

Yes Virginia, there is a geek in the oval office!

and thanks to The Ultimate Conan Blog for bringing this to my attention.
