SNL's Obama sketch: I won Nobel prize for not being George Bush

SNL didn't pass up the chance to mock the president for winning of the Nobel Peace Prize. In case you missed it over the weekend, I've included the clip. This marks the second week in a row that SNL mocked Obama's lack of accomplishment after last week's “to do” list sketch.

Obama (played by Fred Armisen) announces in a press conference:

“This prize bestowed by the Nobel committee in Norway is given annually to individuals who have made significant contributions to world peace. Jimmy Carter won it for decades of trying to find solutions to international conflicts, Al Gore won it for his years of education [the] U.S. about climate change, and us? Well, I won it for not being George Bush.”
