What's Your Quote of the Day About Obama's Nobel?

Much as I dislike the whole concept of Twitter, amid all the commentary out today I'm going to have to say that my favorite bit was this tweet by Ezra Klein:

Obama also awarded Nobel prize in chemistry. "He's just got great chemistry," says Nobel Committee.

(I'll also give our own Eddie Torres best response to a conservative freak-out over the award for his comment here.)

What's yours? Comment away.

Also: PZ Myers figures giving Obama a Nobel Peace Prize isn't nearly as crazy as calling for his impeachment on the wing-nutty grounds that "he seems to have, it seems to me, some malevolence toward this country, which is unabated."

And TPM fills in the details of the "creepy thug for hire" -- a GOP operative infamous for producing the "Willie Horton" ads during the 1988 presidential race -- behind this goofy impeachment campaign.
