This is all absurd. Obama is president of the United States of America. There’s a big difference.

IOZ, usually quotable, is sometimes entirely bitable. As it were. All deference, my Affirmative Action and The Scandinavians’ Burden jokes must be swept aside in favor of his superior dish–

Giving a “peace prize” to a sitting head of state is in any case faintly absurd, like giving a Gruber Prize to Roman Polanski, but giving it to a sitting American head of state while his country is engaged in two major conflicts resulting from its occupation of supposedly sovereign foreign countries because of “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people” is like giving me the Nobel Prize in Medicine because I promise all my bareback partners that I am going to cure AIDS. Well, it’s fine then! The White House reports that The Obama is humbled by the news.
