Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. It was created in Brazil mainly by descendants of African slaves with Brazilian native influences, probably beginning in the 16th century. It is known by quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for leg sweeps.

Quotable: Rachel Maddow (Our Sweetheart)
"I felt like I was watching CAPOEIRA ... The way those two guys were circling each other." Nice cultural reference, Rachel. It might have gone over most of your colleagues' heads, but not here, as you might imagine! And you know, it's the PERFECT metaphor for the President's ultimate victory, for he'd look great as a capoeirista with all the moves — Mitt Romney ... UGH, not at all.
