NOBEL PEACE PRIZE UPDATE: Obama ‘jokes’ that he ‘still doesn’t know why’ he won the Nobel Peace Prize in interview with Stephen Colbert.

The clothes have no emperor, to coin a phrase. And leftist elites did permanent damage to their reputations by ignoring that fact, which everyone else could see but them. Or as Peggy Noonan wrote last week, “I don’t know about you but when people look down on me I want them to be distinguished or outstanding in some way—towering minds, people of exquisite sensibility or learning. Not these grubbly poseurs, these people who’ve never had a thought but only a sensation: Christians are backward, I saw it in a movie! It’s the big fact of American life now, isn’t it? That we are patronized by our inferiors.”
