"Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future," the Norwegian committee said as the prize was announced.
"His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population." (via BBC)

WOAH. Not that I don't think the President's efforts aren't related to peace, but the quote makes me believe the selection is due to Obama's popularity. Nevertheless, this is a major acknowledgment of his influence and perhaps it will lend some cachet to the administration's current attempts with the Israelis and Palestinians. Then again, President Jimmy Carter has one too and he hasn't much luck with both sides. /frown

You guys I am busting my gut out here, it is so freakin' funny. Via the BBC:

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has described himself as the most persecuted person "in the entire history of the world".

Mr Berlusconi also said he was "the best prime minister we can find today".

In an impassioned statement, he then mistakenly told reporters he had spent millions of euros on "judges", before correcting himself to say "lawyers".

the most persecuted person in the entire history of the world.
