Peace Prize? You’ve Got To Be Kidding
I can only hope this is Obamamania cresting – the man has accomplished nothing in the 9 months he’s been in office and he’s given a Nobel Peace Prize for a fantasy project? If you think his narcissism is dangerous now, just wait. At first I thought this was an Onion headline, but nope, NYT:
The Nobel Committee announced in Oslo that it has awarded the annual peace prize to Barack Obama, just nine months into his presidency, “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”
Ye gods. And you wonder why the Peace Prize is no longer considered anything but a political prize.
I wonder what the over-under is for the number of times he mentions himself in the acceptance speech?
