Our 'Bama Which Art

I suppose most of you have heard that President Obama was to be awarded a Nobel Peace prize. And now It has happened, moving an AP man to write this lead:

OSLO – President Barack Obama entered the pantheon of Nobel Peace Prize winners Thursday with humble words, acknowledging his own few accomplishments while delivering a robust defense of war and promising to use the prestigious award to "reach for the world that ought to be."


Yes, we're all aware of the figurative use of language, but I wonder if it's really a good idea for our media to reinforce His cosmic image of Himself.

With windy paeans like this routinely disgracing the pen of honest journalism, His Obamaness can certainly afford to keep his own words humble.

"...[T]he world that ought to be."

Here revealed is the quality of man's character that has made him the most adaptable species on Earth, and is also the cause of every war in history.

A surprising admission from the recipient of a "peace prize", which I'm sure sailed through the minds of the attending "anti-war" believers with as little resistance as is imparted by the imaginary boundary in the air through which a Hamas rocket travels, on its way to an apartment building full of unsuspecting people.
