The name Nobel is clearly not as lofty or exalted as the name Obama. Isn't it time the rename the Nobel Peace Prize to the Obama Peace Prize?
Alfred Nobel invented dynamite. He clearly doesn't deserve to have his name honored by its association with such an, er, exalted prize. Whereas the Nobel Prize committee clearly thinks that Obama, without yet even accomplishing much, is a morally different and very very unusual human being. What better person to name a famous prize after?
Every time someone wins the Obama Prize we will be reminded what the prize represents. Fitting, no?
