America, We've Already Received Our Holiday Gift

Who needs Christmas, when we had an election where Obama won? We've all gotten the best gift and best hope this nation has seen for a long time! It's Awesome!!

You should read this AP article, from yesterday, on Obama's geek credentials, entitled "Obama To Boldly Go Where No Geek Has Gone Before." AlterNet has a commentary on the article, too, which is amusing, parsing out the difference between a geek and a nerd.

I especially loved that he allegedly gave Leonard Nimoy the Vulcan "live long and prosper" hand salute when he saw him during a campaign appearance, and makes other Star Trek jokes. I hope he watches CBS' The Big Bang Theory sitcom, which is a constant and hilarious stream of Trek fan in-jokes.

How wonderful it is to have a President-elect who is intellectually-curious and technologically savvy! Take a deep breath and just think about January 20th!
