Noble Nobel

Apologies to Begging to Differ for swiping the above head from Greg’s post. Iranian activist Shirin Ebadi seems like a superb choice for all the reasons given by Sullivan, Drezner (and those commenting) and others (do your own surfing) - and shocking, considering last year’s choice of Jimmy Carter was supposed to be seen as a slap in the face to the Bush administration's “rush to war” in Iraq. Maybe even European elites see the value of freedom.

I am surprised that National Review Online has nothing from Michael Ledeen, their Iran expert, on the Nobel committee’s choice - good or bad. I’m not sure what that means, but I would have expected some kind of comment.

Knock-knock-knock. NRO? Is anyone there? Hello?
