I checked my vital signs to see if I was dreaming. I checked to see if anyone might have tampered with the water supply. But it's true. President Barack Hussein Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize.
For criticising America at every opportunity, for sucking up to every human rights violator at every opportunity, but most of all for gazing earnestly into his teleprompter, President Obama has won the Nobel Peace Prize.
To say that Obama has achieved nothing would be a lie. He has actually shown beyond a reasonable shadow of a doubt the total and absolute worthlessness of this prize. Yasir Arafat was at least great in his awfulness. Jimmy Carter merited the prize through the nadir of ineptitude that has been achieved by few since.
Barack Obama is a total rookie. He has thankfully failed at implementing his dangerous ideas, despite the applause of cutthroat dictators and Eurotrash everywhere. He has set a gold standard for mediocrity. I would congratulate him, but for what?
The Nobel Peace Prize has about as much value as the Zimbabwean Dollar, which trades at trillions to the dollar and falls hourly. The award of the Nobel Peace Prize to President Obama is a joke with no punch line, just like many of its recipients.
Alfred Nobel, after whom the prize is named, is the inventor of dynamite. Deterrent posession of arms has probably done more to preserve world peace than anything else. I am sure that Mr. Nobel would be puzzled, if not shocked, to see the judgement exercised in his name by the Nobel Peace Prize award committee.
Good sportsmanship would dictate that congratulations are in order. But what for? Sphere: Related Content
