Let me take a moment to say Barack Obama deserves the peace award. Not for what he has accomplished. Heck, what has he had time to accomplish in 9 months faced with the worst economic disaster of a lifetime and a relentless onslaught from the Republican Gomorrah? (Thank you Max Blumenthal.) Obama deserves the award for that moment when he won his election, that moment when the sane half of our world was able – if for only an instance – able to sigh in relief, able for the first time in a decade to believe maybe things might turn out all right, able to have one second of peace. Then it was gone, but it was worth it. And for that moment, Obama deserves a thousand Nobel prizes.
