THE LARS'S AND THE REAL GIRL:

Okay, suppose for a moment that the case being made by the apologists for the Nobel Committee make any sense, that they are kind of like the boys in Weird Science and the Barack Obama they honored is a Kelly LeBrock-like avatar of their own construction. They didn't give the prize to the actual guy who's president, but to the ideal Obama they want to believe he could be. Here's the beautiful thing, it would have been easier to justify the award if they'd given it to him last year, before he'd even been elected. With every day that passes it becomes more glaringly obvious that he's nothing like what these types of folks were hoping for and the pretense that he is--or might be--is less tenable.

It's exquisite: the prize comes too late, not too soon.
