Eyes on the Prize Cont'd

Lots of people snickered, many others clapped. Daniel Drezner got a good laugh:

Honestly, I’m not laughing at Obama.  I’m laughing at the morons on the Norwegian Nobel Committee who made this decision to cheapen an already devalued prize.

I wonder if my friends in the academic community would agree with him on this point, too:

Giving the award to Obama is kind of like giving that junior professor the Teacher of the Year award — it dooms their chances for tenure.
