Obama - Nobel Prize Winner

Yeah, yeah, I know it's been forever since I've blogged here. But others' blogs are so much better than this one.

However, I wanted to note Pres Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize today.

Many are wondering what he could have done to deserve it. I think I have the answer:

1. It is a consolation prize from the people of Scandinavia for giving the Olympics to Rio de Janeiro.

2. It is Scandinavia's way of saying thanks for not bombing them after humiliating him in front of the world.

Anyway, either/or works pretty well for me. How about you?

I wonder if they think they can influence him though this.

I believe he's above such influence though.

I would hope he is above such influence. I would feel better about it had he declined the award, asking them to reconsider him later when he had accomplished real things.

In accepting it, it diminishes him and his office.
