Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee Sold His Comics Collection to Pay for Law School

President Obama Announces His Nominee To The Supreme Court
Two nerds.

Fresh off the news that President Obama has apparently used The Dark Knight as a metaphor for dealing with ISIS, we now have reason to believe the commander-in-chief and his new Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, were both comics dweebs back in the day.
