As Paddy posted earlier, On Israel trip, President Obama to receive Presidential Medal of Distinction:

(CNN) – When President Barack Obama visits Israel next month, he’ll be awarded the Presidential Medal of Distinction, Israeli President Shimon Peres’ office announced Monday.

Obama, the first sitting U.S. president to receive the recognition, will be awarded the medal for making “a unique and significant contribution to strengthening the State of Israel and the security of its citizens,” according to a release announcing the news.

Marco Rubio, realizing he and his Republican buddies just saw one of their favorite talking points disappear the way Mark Sanford did during his his Appalachian Trail stunt, is probably yearning for a nice, shiny medal of his own:

Jerusalem Post: Rubio wrote that he will meet President Shimon Peres, Netanyahu and other political, defense, intelligence and business leaders. He also has a meeting planned with Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad.

Too bad about that medal envy thing, but who knows? He could very well be presented with the Water Bottle of Humiliation Award for making "a unique and significant contribution to strengthening the sales of Poland Springs." Some savior.

Kabang, kapow, kablooey!!! Decimates the rights' blather about President Obama not supporting Israel that the Republicans natter on about. I'm looking at you McCain. Probably won't stop them.

(CNN) – When President Barack Obama visits Israel next month, he'll be awarded the Presidential Medal of Distinction, Israeli President Shimon Peres' office announced Monday.

Obama, the first sitting U.S. president to receive the recognition, will be awarded the medal for making "a unique and significant contribution to strengthening the State of Israel and the security of its citizens," according to a release announcing the news.

He'll receive the award at a dinner at Peres' residence in Jerusalem, slated to be attended by senior figures from Israeli public life and the Obama administration. The award is given to "private" individuals and organizations that have made "outstanding contributions to bettering the world."

Previous winners of the award include former Secretary of State Dr. Henry Kissinger, the Music Director of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Attorney Uri Slonim, and Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz.
