Way to go, Norway!
According to the Associated Press Jimmy Carter says the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to President Barack Obama is a "bold statement of international support for his vision and commitment." Well, if'n ole Jimmah sez so it mus' be, ain't that right, Lem?

It appears Obama will accept the Prize (with all due humility, of course) in recognition of the goals he has set set for the United States and the world.
May I suggest these other prestigious awards also richly deserved:
- The Elmer (statuette), awarded in recognition of glutinous ubiquity in media
- The Blue Mini (Order Pour le Petit Merit) awarded for meritorious accomplishment in the face of overwhelming lack of accomplishment.
- The Iron Double-Cross, First Class, awarded for notable foreign policy achievement in Eastern Europe
- The Most Illustrious Order of the Gold Fleecing, granted in recognition of Supreme Acts of Valor against personal wealth, financial independence, bond portfolios and 401K accounts.
