One of the first things I thought when I heard Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize was that it was going to backfire on him. It is so obviously undeserved that it seemed likely to just hack people off. Well it may be happening.
The Times quotes Bob Lichter, who has tracked themes in late-night humor for 21 years, as saying “it will be telling to see how the comedians treat” the president’s winning the peace prize: Is there now a caricature taking hold of a man more celebrated than accomplished?
“A man more celebrated than accomplished” says it all.
