My thoughts? I just don't think it matters much.Also, Matt Cooper:
It Can't HurtBeyond that...awards talk is fun, but this one is near the bottom of my interest level, along with Time's Man of the Year and the Grammys. If you think this is a bad choice, I'd direct you to more important outrages such as the inexplicable choices of the TV people at the Emmys to ignore Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, and Michael Hogan, or the disrespect the Kennedy Center Honors shows to Little Richard, or the appalling failure of HOF voters to induct Mark McGwire, or the selection of second-rate hack John Mellencamp for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. All of which have roughly the same amount of political importance as whether or not Obama gets the Peace Prize.
