In Saturday Night Live's
skit spoofing Obama's Nobel win, Obama, played by Fred Armisen, compared himself to other winners: "Jimmy Carter won it for decades of trying to find solutions to international conflicts. Al Gore won it for his years of educating the US about climate change. And us? Well, I won it for not being George Bush."
He added: "This award was as a complete surprise, as I have only not been George W. Bush for nine months."
Obama said the Nobel committee didn't call to wake him with the news, but he wished they had, so he could say to Hillary Clinton, "Hey, remember that 3 a.m. call you were so worried about? It happened. Nobel Peace Prize."
Obama went on to announce he had also just won the $70 million jackpot in the Powerball lottery, and "it was the first lottery ticket I ever bought."
"From our standpoint, you know, we think that this gives us a sense of momentum ... when the United States has accolades tossed its way, rather than shoes (external - login to view)

"In a surprise decision, President Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize Friday. In other premature awards this week: high school football player Billy Reynolds has been named this year's Heisman Trophy winner; fifth grader Amber Collins has been named Miss America; and nine-year-old Dylan Holt has been named People's 'Sexiest Man Alive.'" --Seth Meyers
