another sign of the triumph of nerd culture

i agree with booman, calling the White House correspondents' dinner the "nerd prom" is an insult to nerds. plus, a bunch of successful journalists, politicians and celebrities all hobnobbing together is pretty much the antithesis of nerd culture. what's interesting is that said successful journalists are the ones who refer to it as a nerd prom. which is more of a commentary on the current caché of nerdiness than anything else.
