For Matt Drudge, apparently, President Obama's Nobel prize is the joke that keeps on giving. Drudge's headline today, on the news that Elinor Ostrom and Oliver Williamson had won the Nobel in economics, was: "Obama fails to win Nobel prize in economics..."

Get it? Because, you know, he won the peace prize, so obviously it's a shocking failure when he doesn't win all the other prizes this year, too... Well, yeah, we didn't either. Maybe you just had to be there.
