Someone told me about this and I thought they had been hoaxed (again)

Obama Wins Nobel Prize in Part for Confronting ‘Great Climatic Challenges’

Look. We all know that the Nobel Peace Prize has as much to do with the real world as the Oscars have to do with film making. At least the Oscars are awarded for things that have already been done, rather than things that someone has said they’re going to do in the future but haven’t really moved on yet.

Really, I guess I don’t see how this does anything but strengthen the comparisons of Barrack Obama to Jimmy Carter.

  1. If you wanna have some fun with this, you can continue to support his unwarranted and unearned awards by voting for him to win the Heisman.

    ESPN is running a contest where the public votes for someone to get a vote for the Heisman on the official ballot. There are several nominees, but also a space where you can enter any name you choose.

    I placed Barak Obama’s name in for the Heisman, and it’s be dun to flood the contest with this loser POTUS’ name.

    Heh…..

  2. And a couple of months from now, he’ll be awarded the Cy Young award for throwing out that ceremonial first pitch awhile back.

  3. Suck it Iranian protesters. Your cause just wasn’t good enough.

    That whole program is such an f-ing joke. Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, and Barack Obama. Saul Alinksy and Bill Ayers should be up for theirs shortly.

  4. The Nobel Peace Prize was just a consolation gift to Obama as he did not get the Olympics. Think of the Nobel prize as a nice parting gift.

  5. Don’t forget that the bassages on the committee also gave one to Arafat.

    Someone wrote that the “Nobel Peace Prize” ought to be renamed the “Neville Chamberlain Award” sine it’s primarily going to clueless politicians and appeasers.

  6. Ok, let me get this straight. TWO WEEKS after he was sworn in, Zero got nominated for the Nobel. Even though he has “…..no concrete achivements as yet….” it’s for what he will do in the FUTURE!? You can’t make this crap up! Using this logic, can I get my full pay for the next five years for the work I will be doing? My God,I used to hold the Norwegians in high esteem.

    AFSarge,

    And ye non-believers didn’t think I was serious when I addressed him as The Messiah.

    He better be careful though. He might get people really CROSS</b. with him.

  8. You Guys just don’t get it- It’s a Leftist thing. They run the selection Committee
    it’s there Award and they will do with it what they want. Being on the Left means never having to say your sorry.

  9. Dick Morris has an interesting explanation on Norway awarding Obama this prize. Here is an excerpt:

    Now, the Norwegians have weighed in to support Barack Obama in his bid to reshape America so it looks more like, well, Norway, or at least like Europe.

    European socialism cannot succeed without conquering the United States. If the European Union has high taxes and the US keeps its levies low, business and brains will flow to America. If the EU’s labor standards require long vacations, high benefits, and proscribe layoffs and ours’ do not, employers will migrate across the ocean to do their business in the States. If the Old World curbs ambition by taxation, regulation, and social opprobrium, the ambitious will flock to the New World as they have done for four hundred years.

  10. The Nobel prize is given by the Sweden, not the Norwegian. Before someone say “it’s basically the same”, I tell the Sweden are blondier than the Norwegian.

  11. Good one on the Heisman, AW1 Tim! LOL!

    Naderbus…….while you’ve nominated two good cndidates……you guys might just as well go home. I’ve nominated Al Franken. It’s in the bag! :)

  12. I gave all my pocket change to the Salvation Army dozens of times over the years, which is an actual, TANGIBLE act of philanthropy — where’s MY Nobel Prize?

  13. I didn’t know the Nobel Prize committee had a Dumbo Jug Ear category that was officially known as the Peace prize!!!!
