    Default Nobel Peace Prize

    Um-um-um-um-um
    It was impossible, so it took a little longer to accomplish.

    The last American POTUS to win one was another idiot, Jimmy Carter.

    I actually agree with most of the comments made by the Nobel Committee. However, as of now I think the award is premature since, beyond words, there is nothing to show from his efforts. In another year I hope he will have actually earned such a prize. I would love to see pictures of Sarcozy and Berlusconi on learning of the announcement. Talk about jealous rage.

    The sad part of this is that there are some very deserving people whose efforts and ACHIEVEMENTS actually warrant the award.

    There is speculation that this is the "anti-Bush" award.

    Another note. Nominations for this had to be in by Feb 1. Considering he was sworn in on Jan 20, exactly what were his accomplishments again?
