Yes, you read that correctly. I want to congratulate President Obama on his winning of the Nobel Peace Prize. The committee could not have chosen a better person to demonstrate just how meaningless this award truly has become. Over the past 20 years or so, it has been more of a political statement on liberalism than anything else.
Something to think about:
- The nominations for this year’s winner closed only 11 days after President Mmm-Mmm-Mmm took office… were those 11 amazing days or what?
- The committee isn’t releasing the name of the person who nominated Obama, but Jimmy Carter and Algore are suspects.
- In 2002, the award went to former President Jimmy Carter for his mediation in International Conflicts. More than anything this was a swipe at the Bush administration for the hard line they took as they made plans to invade Iraq.
- In 2007, another slap to the Bush administration as they selected former VP and current Carbon Credit Huckster Algore for his work to convince people global warming is an issue, and one that can only be solved by buying carbon credits from his company.
On Michelle Malkin‘s blog, she quotes Michael P. Leahy, who wrote: “Where’s Kanye West when we really need him?”
Reportedly, Obama’s selection was due to his committment to world peace which, as pointed out by Tampa morning radio personalities Jack Harris and Tedd Webb, “Ought to make every Miss America contestant eligible.”
The peace-seeking President was not immediately available for comment. He is in meetings this morning, planning a new war strategy for Afghanistan. I’m just sayin’…
Mmm-Mmm-Mmm Nobel Prize Winner Barack Hussein Obama…
