Dazzle them with brilliance

or baffle them with bullshit. The Nobel Peace Prize Committee doesn't wait to sort it out.

Barack Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize
[F]or his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples

After Yasser Arafat was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 I lost all respect for it. Subsequent awards have done nothing to change that opinion and this award certainly doesn't help that situation. Frankly if I were Bobo I'd be embarrassed by this. He has done nothing of any substance to earn it. It is plainly a political award.

OTOH, I don't have an ego big enough to want to be President of the US.
