Pandering 101
I Grok Barack

Yes, Dingle Berry is an aficionado of Urdu poetry. Here's some of the article from Politico.com; (Emphasis mine) Spread the word: Obama says he digs Urdu poetry

If you want to make high-brow small talk at one of President Barack Obama’s cocktail parties, don’t bother brushing up your Shakespeare. Try reading Urdu poetry.

As POLITICO’s Ben Smith points out in his blog, Obama showed off his intellectual flair by evoking a standard of Pakistani culture in a recent interview with Dawn, a popular English-language newspaper in Pakistan:
"‘I would love to visit. As you know, I had Pakistani roommates in college who were very close friends of mine. I went to visit them when I was still in college; was in Karachi and went to Hyderabad. Their mothers taught me to cook,’ said Mr Obama.

‘What can you cook?’

‘Oh, keema ... daal ... You name it, I can cook it. And so I have a great affinity for Pakistani culture and the great Urdu poets.’

‘You read Urdu poetry?’

‘Absolutely. So my hope is that I’m going to have an opportunity at some point to visit Pakistan,’ said Mr Obama.”
I just can't help but wonder what he might have said at a Star Trek Convention? Here's some of a recent (but relatively little known) article from Nerds Illustrated; Spread the word: or Obama will kill you for food

"You know, my wife's a Klingon. I would love to visit The Homeworld one day. As you know, I had Klingon roommates in college who were very close friends of mine. I went to visit them when I was still in college; was in Q'onoS and went to Kittimer, but we didn't stay there too long due to a dispute they were having with the House of Mogh. Their mothers taught me to cook,’ said Mr Obama.

‘What can you cook?’

‘Oh, Rokeg Blood Pie... Gagh.... Chech'tluth, you name it, I can cook it. And so I have a great affinity for Klingon culture and the great tlhIngan poets.’

‘You read tlhIngan poetry?’

‘Absolutely. I especially Klingon love poetry. My all-time favorite is Dok'marr's "I Want To Splay Open You Abdominal Cavity And Motorboat Your Intestines". So my hope is that I’m going to have an opportunity at some point to visit Q'onoS during my presidency,’ said Mr. Obama.

"But I first have to attend the G-8,736,016,097 economic summit and and apologize to the Cardassians, Q, the Bajorans, the Tamarians, the Breens, the Klingons, the Borg, the Dominion, the Ferengi, the Krenim, The Romulans, the Tholians, the Betazoids, the Tribbles, the Vulcans and every green chick that Jim Kirk ever nailed, for everything America has ever done wrong and what The Federation will do wrong in the future. Qapla'!"
