Obamamania, meet Hulkamania



The Hulkster is in Obama's corner, ready to jump in when Bill Clinton tries to distract the referee and whack Obama over the head with a folding chair.

Some interesting back-story on the Hulkster (real name Terry Bollea) -- he was trained by Hiro Matsuda (real name Yasuhiro Kojima), who has this "Karate Kid" story about the perseverance of the Hulk:
As a trainer, Matsuda was famous for being very stiff with his trainees to toughen them up and teach them to respect the business. His most famous story involved him being very tough on a young Hulk Hogan in his first day of training and breaking his leg. After Hogan healed, he came right back to Matsuda's school, looking to continue his training. Matsuda was so impressed by his display of "guts" that he trained him properly from that day on.

How's this for range? People supporting Obama: Sen. Patrick Leahy, Toni Morrison, Gov. Janet Napolitano, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, and Hulk Hogan.
