Vanderleun trumps Drudge on Twitter:
Drudgereport still has Nancy Pelosi up. Guess he's got to sleep sometime... that or he's crafting the headline "WTF!!?"
But what could be more appropriate? As we twittered, while Drudge slept:
PEACE IN OUR TIME. NOBEL COMMITTEE CHANNELS CHAMBERLAIN Obama awarded Nobel Peace Prize.
ROLL OVER, ALFRED NOBEL, and tell Jimmy Carter the news.
Update: Greg Pollowitz twitters:
Breaking News: President Obama has been awarded the Nobel in Physics for his 10th grade science fair project.
Appeasement in our time.
According to sources, the President is "humbled." First time?
Update II: Drudge scores: "OBAMA WINS NOBEL PEACE PRIZE" headline and triumphal image paired with "Iran to 'blow up the heart of Israel' if attacked..." So much cognitive dissonance, so little time.
Update III: "No freakin way" rants blog buddy Dan Riehl, whose disarming outspokenness has attracted a BBC World Service radio producer (tune in at 11:30 ET to hear what he has to say). The blogosphere, twittersphere and immediate world are abuzz. We're off to immerse ourselves in the irresistible awfulness of it all!
