So, after 10 days in office, President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.  Why?  I suppose for not being President Bush.  He'll be the third person so far to receive the award for that reason -- after Al Gore and President Carter.  It's truly a pity that the Nobel committee couldn't wait until there was at least a pretense of accomplishment.  As it is, after 6 months without anything significant to show for it, the award is obviously without substance.  The only thing that has been accomplished here is to dilute the meaning of an award that used to mean something.

Meanwhile, our President's advisors support sharia law that oppresses women, describing it as "gender justice":
During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular "man-made law" and the West's "lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism".

They called for Sharia Law to be "the source of legislation" and said that women should not be "permitted to hold a position of leadership in government".

More like enforced gender helplessness, it seems like.  Personally I'm rather fond of the "lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism".  Who wouldn't be fond of freedom and wealth?  Oh, wait... I think we just found out.
