    I expect the wingnut meta-take on this to be that the Nobel prizes are pointless socialist crap no matter who they awarded to.
    Consider the evidence:
    Prizes in science awarded to eggheads whose theories are worthlessly esoteric, rarely resulting in more efficient devices for killing people. The Committee never recognizes creation science so like do they even know what science is?
    Literature prizes awarded to “writers” whose “work” is hard to read. How is difficult literature prize worthy? Or better yet, why would I read anything that some liberal would consider literature? Damn right Stephen King don’t write literature…he writes good ol’ books.
    And the Peace prize? What does that tell you that they give away a prize for peace? “Oh look at me, I’m Osama bin Peaceful and I’m more peaceful than you, whitey.” You can keep that one.

  • Paul Tardy

    “All the Noble “Peace Prize” does now is reward sniveling weasels who make grandiose speeches disparaging America in foreign lands. Consider the past recipients. They ought to just drop the pretense and rename it the “Nobel Enemy of America Prize”.”

    (I especially like the scare quotes around “Peace Prize”).

    “Affirmative Action really works.”

    “It’s a blatantly transparent move to keep any military action from being taken on Iran”

    “The Kenyan next should receive an Oscar for ACTING like a Natural-born Citizen”

    One should not forget that it is the Swedes who give the Nobel Prizes for science, etc. Norway gives the peace prize as nothing more than a socialist political statement.
    Obama getting the Nobel for his international groveling is comparable to Nevile Chamberlain having received it (which he didn’t) for signing Britain over to the Nazis with the stroke of a pen.
    Such Norwegian “phoney baloney”is only taken seriously by the liberals — Chris Matthews must be having another one of those Obama tingles running up his leg.
    Perhaps the President can give the prize money to his former client, ACORN.

    Bet you think the fucktards slime Obama’s Nobel with NAMBLA, but you’d be wrong. Apologies in advance for the long post, but this is unbelievable. It mentions Wonkette, so I thought it would be of interest. From the WaPo column on Does Obama deserve the Nobel Prize:
    “Posted by Erick Erickson (Profile)
    Thursday, October 8th at 10:26PM EDT
    When I was a teenager, my friends and I joked about NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association.
    Until I was in my twenties, I thought my friends had just made it up. Surely there was no such organization that campaigned to allow open sexual relations between boys and men — a concept that did not just involve statutory rape, but offended the profound decency of a moral public.
    Sadly, NAMBLA is very real and today steps right out of the darkest pits of immoral human behavior and straight into the White House. Sean Hannity has been all over this story and we are just now coming to terms with how sick and demented the thinkings and associations of White House Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings are.
    To be sure, the left wing Media Matters, which is run by former conservative turned homosexual activist and left-wing icon David Brock, is screaming from the rooftops that Sean Hannity is lying.
    Hannity is not lying. Kevin Jennings is a profoundly sick and immoral human being — a proponent of statutory rape, an opponent of the Boy Scouts of America, and a zealous advocate of NAMBLA.
    He is Barack Obama’s Safe Schools Czar. He is a supporter of men who openly and vocally support pedophilia.
    Media Matters threw out a few talking points to defend Van Jones. But Media Matters is giving a full throated, aggressive defense of Kevin Jennings. Why? Well, to paraphrase Wonkette, gay is the new black.
    Van Jones was just a black guy. With a black President, resources did not need to be brought to bear to defend him. Kevin Jennings, however, is not just a gay man, but a man who believes in the full gay rights agenda, where men and boys can have sexual relationships
    free of prudish moral people frowning. Jennings has championed NAMBLA’s causes and lauded a pedophilia advocate.
    He even wrote the forward to a book called “Queering Elementary Education.” That’s right, Jennings wrote the forward to a book that, in its own description advocates the aggressive homosexual agenda among elementary school students. From the book: “queering education happens when we look at schooling upside down and view childhood from the inside out.” No irony is intended apparently in that description. Americans of moral decency should be stunned to know the President of the United States would put in charge of “safe schools,” a man who encourages predatory relationships between young boys and grown men.
    Barack Obama has done exactly that. Has he no shame.”

    The point, I guess is that it might not be fair to use the Nobel Peace Prize to say just that, given what it was supposed to be according to Nobel’s will.

    Although I guess this means our government has finally realized that (except when we serve as an example in Michael Moore movies) the only time people notice Norway at all is when the NPP is handed out, which should inspire some humility and lessen the “man, we’re just so darn great, aren’t we” factor.
