From the article:
U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for giving the world "hope for a better future"
He got the Nobel Peace Prize for "giving the world hope"!?
You've got to be kidding me.
Well, I guess that he fits in well with Yasser Arafat, Jimmy Carter, and Al Gore.
"Very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future," the committee said in a citation.Please!!! No more!! I've got to run to the restroom and lose my breakfast.
I'm not sure whether I should laugh or cry. On one hand it is funny. On the other hand it's a shame that the so-called Peace Prize has descended consistently to this level of silliness.
I don't know why the price committee didn't award the "Peace" prize jointly to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong-il, and Barack Hussein Obama. I guess they didn't want the chosen one to have to share the spotlight.
