Barack’s Nifty Nobel Prize

Posted by madjillmom on October 9, 2009

Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize because…

  1. He isn’t George Bush.
  2. It will piss off Bill and Hillary. Gore and Arafat have one and they don’t.
  3. Nothing he did, but all the promises.
  4. He is siding with the Palestinians against Israel – a sure fire way to get noticed by the Committee.  Arafat and Carter as examples.
  5. He can give a really nifty speech.  He should share the money with his teleprompter.
  6. Peace in Chicago – Attorney General Eric Holder and Education Secretary Arne Duncan have been dispatched to war-torn inner city Chicago to stop the gang wars and establish peace.  As soon as they figure out a strategy, someone will e-mail it to Obama and General McChrystal to implement in Afghanistan.
  7. It was a consolation prize for losing out on the 2016 Olympics.
  8. He has a really nice smile.
  9. He has written (maybe) two biographies about himself and his search for his identity.  Now he will have to write a third one.  Goody.
  10. The Nobel Peace Prize doesn’t mean much anymore.

Now I am curious as to who informed the President of his prestigious award.  Fox reported that reporters woke up Gibbs who then called the President.  In Obama’s remarks to the nation, he said his daughter came in and told him about it and  their three day weekend. (Time enough to fly to Norway, I suppose.)   I can just see the First Family and Bo bounding onto the Presidential bed with excitement.  What a way to begin the day.
