Obama's Nobel Peace Prize - what a joke!

Obama received the prize "... not for substantive accomplishments, but for his 'vision' and inspiring 'hope' ...". We might'a known!

The Nobel Peace Prize was a joke long before it was awarded to fat head Al Gore and his fellow warmists. It was a sick joke when they awarded it to career terrorist Yasser Arafat. It was a stupid joke when they awarded it to Jimmy Carter.

The Nobel Peace Prize - a worthless joke (not counting the $1.4M cash award).

Jonathan Kay, Mark Steyn.

Updates:


Melanie Phillips - "Barack Obama wins the Yasser Arafat prize: ... You have to have a heart of stone not to laugh."

Wall Street Journal - "The Nobel Hope Prize: ... Our own reaction is bemusement at the Norwegian decision to offer what amounts to the world's first futures prize in diplomacy, with the Nobel Committee anticipating the heroic concessions that it believes Mr. Obama will make to secure treaties that will produce a new era of global serenity."

These are crazy times we live in..you can be charged for bad thoughts, and win prizes for doing something you have accomplished only in your mind..

...before it was awarded to fat Al Gore...

Wow. Truly insightful commentary. Might I suggest you work a "poo-poo head" in there next time, just to appeal to the intellectuals among us.

If there was ever any doubt standards for virtually everything are "dumbed-down" to facilitate affirmative action, then its now gone.

The Big O is the poster boy.

The Nobel Peace Prize became irredeemably tainted the moment it was awarded to a rabid racist (according to his own, openly available writings) and pedophile (he liked to sleep with naked young girls and administer enemas to them as often as possible). I speak of none other than 'Mahatma' Ghandi!

Add to this awarding the prize to the blatant terrorist, Nelson Mandela (read what Desmond Tutu has to say about him)...

Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to 'Neville' Obama now, before he is actually guilty of multiple genocide (by action, or lack thereof), is actually pretty mild...
