I was, of course, shocked, to wake up to the news that Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. Like many, I was looking for the punchline - was this an April Fool's joke? But no, it is real.
My next thought was, the right-wing nutjobs are going to go apeshit over this. For that reason alone I wish this prize did not happen. The right-wing noise machine is annoying enough on a good day. Oh well, at least I'll get it filtered through Jon Stewart.
