Here's a great piece by Robert J. Elisberg about the President's Nobel Peace Prize. I think it correctly addresses the nature of the award and the immaturity of the conservatives who just don't like Obama getting any credit for anything.
My only problem with the essay is the use of a word I see misused on the Internet frequently: renown. Renown is a noun; renowned, the form that should have been used in this essay, is an adjective. Maybe it was just a typo, but I see it used wrong on the Net all the time.
