When Politics and Geekdom Collide

I feel like there is more discussion of politics in geek culture (via comic books, novels, TV shows, movies) than of geek culture in politics. But occasionally, these two worlds intersect in the political arena.

One of those intersections happened last week with the debt crisis, with politicians drawing allusions to Lord of the Rings. What the what?

Stephen Colbert (a huge LOTR fan) summarizes the craziness best, as always. With "visual aids."
