A historical moment

I can't decide which is worse: Obama winning the Nobel Prize for being less of a jerk than that other guy, or the Washington Post noting that the "Twitterati appear perplexed by [the] selection" (on the front page of the website, no less). It appears we've entered an age of lowered expectations, where not being completely incompetent is astonishing, and trivial thoughts even I can come up with win you that the most prestigious of suffixes, -ati.
