Will CNN Fact-Check Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize?

Why not? They fact-checked a Saturday Night Live Skit. But I’m not holding my breath.

On my way to work this morning, I heard a few seconds of a guy with a foreign accent awarding what sounded like a Nobel Peace Prize to Barack Obama. My reaction was: I was almost certain I was listening to a skit from SNL or one of the late-night talk shows.

I was wrong. Wow.

Will Obama be thinking about his World Peacemaker Cred when he decides whether or not to follow his general’s advice and increase troop levels to win in Afghanistan?

    The Nobel prize is like the Oscars. Cool when someone you like wins it, but overall, just a subjective group of people voting the flavor of the month, regardless of accomplishment.
