Just about everybody has opined on it, but I’ll add my two cents to the igNobel Prize controversy.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee may have thought that they were doing President Obama a favor. In fact, they have put the White House and his fiercest defenders in the position of having to defend the absolutely indefensible position that he is worthy of the award.
For a president already struggling with (a) a reputation of having not accomplished anything, and (b) diminished credibility even among the Far Left, this prize is not the kind of help the President needs.
If he doesn’t already, President Obama is going to soon regret not taking Mickey Kaus’ advice to graciously decline the award.
