I thought they hated us because of Bush?

Nobel literature head: US too insular to compete

Interesting story from the AP today. Shucks, apparently us Americans is just too dumb to do any serious writin'.

It's funny, I wonder how academia is reacting to this. No doubt it's Bush's fault. All those poor creative writing professors, who have slogged through the salt mines of hungover student-filled classrooms, only to race home and pound out 1200 words a day, before heading off to whatever cocktail party happens to be that night so they can talk about the hope and change inspired by everyone's favorite centrist, tarred by association with the illegal invasion of Iraq.

Oh yeah - and wiring taping.

And waterboarding.

Hope and change, baby!
