The Cherry on the Cake of a Very Strange Week

Speaking of Nobel Prize announcements, the President won the prize for peace. I am a bit stunned. I am tempted to say this is premature, though I am equally tempted to say this is deserved. I could list the reasons why, but others are already doing as much, and probably a lot better. I am sure the President’s critics are making their own lists aimed at chalking this up as an absurdity. Credence might be paid to both arguments, but I will say this: ever since Kissinger won the prize it has become, in my mind, completely irrelevant. Yeah, Henry sullied the entire thing, so, Mr. President, I wouldn’t feel too honored. Hope you dump the cash into the economy. Oh, and can I have a grant?
