Adam pointed me to this neat comic explaining just how Obama managed to get the Nobel Prize. It’s the only explanation.
Speaking of Obama and peace, I just read that he has ordered another 34’000 troops into Afghanistan and is about to test the “Massive Ordnance Penetrator”, the largest non-nuclear bomb ever, weighing in a bit over 13 tons.
Still, it’s probably way better than what John McCain & Sara Palin would have done (not including what is stated in the comic above).
Barack Obama won the Nobel peace prize even though he hasn’t taken any real action yet. I like Obama, but this paints him out even more as the next Jesus.
Normally the Nobel Prize is awarded 10-40 years after a person has accomplished something worthwhile, but when this year’s nomination deadline ended Obama had only been president for two weeks. I find that a little odd.
