Confirmed: Nobel Peace Prize Absolutely Meaningless


Unbelievable.  Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize.

I woke up to this:

Rather than recognizing concrete achievement, the 2009 prize appeared intended to support initiatives that have yet to bear fruit: reducing the world stock of nuclear arms, easing American conflicts with Muslim nations and strengthening the U.S. role in combating climate change.

Luckily I hadn’t eaten breakfast yet. 

The committee chairman said after awarding the 2002 prize to former Democratic President Jimmy Carter, for his mediation in international conflicts, that it should be seen as a "kick in the leg" to the Bush administration's hard line in the buildup to the Iraq war.

I’m pretty sure Bush didn’t give a crap about winning the Nobel Peace Price, he seemed a little more interested in preventing Iraq from obtaining nuclear weapons and kicking the crap out of terrorists.
