Dear Ed Rollins,

You're a grade-A hack, so I don't expect more of you. Still, if you do think the Peace Prize is cheapened with Obama's reception of it, I've got news for you. If you're looking for the moment when the Nobel Peace Prize was cheapened, it didn't happen today. It happened back in 1973, when a man who supported Pinochet (and would soon support a dictatorship that in just 6 years killed 30,000 people in Argentina) was given the award.

With historical perspective, I remain,

Mr. Trend.
