Faithful readers of the Power

Faithful readers of the Power Line know that I have been impatiently awaiting the day when Mark Steyn would address himself to the Jimmy Carter Nobel/Peace Prize phenomenon. Although his column today is not entirely devoted to the subject, I would say that he does justice to it in the following few sentences: “[Some America haters] express their feelings more or less harmlessly by going out of their way to laud the most incompetent and ludicrous Americans, as the Swedes did the other day by giving Jimmy Carter the Nobel Peace Prize. ‘For what?’ you may be asking. Oh, come on. It was Jimmy who handed the Islamofascists their first great victory, in Iran a quarter-century ago. If that ain’t worth a Swedish meatball, what is?” The column is headlined “Our friends are at war, too.”
