MEGAN MCARDLE: “I guess I must hate America, but I actually think it’s kind of ludicrous that anyone is even trying to argue that Barack Obama truly deserves this Nobel Peace Prize. Could he have deserved it, after he’d had more than nine months in office? Easily. But he hasn’t had time to, y’know, accomplish anything.”
The Oval Office as some kind of high level Self Esteem Camp? Well, no. You can’t blame Obama for this; he seems to have been as surprised as anyone. It’s just more evidence that the allegedly “serious” institutions of Western society aren’t up to the job.
