The cover of the Oct. 21 Japan Newsweek reads Obama Wa Nobel-sho Ni Ataeshinai which means “Obama Unworthy of Nobel Prize”. The subtitle says “The Idiocy Of Him Receiving Such An Award, With Less The One Year In Office With No Accomplishment”
Can you imagine that being on the cover of the U.S. edition? Of course, the only place you’d probably see it would be in a dentist office.

Barack Obama Wins Cy Young Award — It’s been quite a year for the young man from Illinois (or Hawaii or Kenya or wherever).
Inaugurated as president of the United States on Jan. 20; feats in his first 12 days to garner him a Nobel Peace Prize nomination by the Feb. 1 deadline; beating 204 other worthy nominees to win the award — and its sweet 10 million Swedish kronor — on Oct. 9; and now to cap it off he has been named National League Cy Young Award winner for his performance in this year’s All Star game.
Take that those of you who say he throws like a girl.
The New York Times has asked that the awarding of the Heisman and Super Bowl MVP trophies be moved to December so he can win those as well this year. Megadittos, I say!! Megadittos!
Tip of the hat to Bob McCarty.
