What did she do to deserve it.  Obviously they should give it to Obama instead.

None of this would have happened if more people in Afghanistan had guns.

BrotherMalcolm: Didn't Gore, Obama render this award a joke?


The_Original_Roxtar: The Nobel Peace Prize is a farce.
2012: the European Union.
2009: Obama
2007: Al Gore


Oh absolutely - a lot longer than that. They gave it to somebody I don't approve of back in the seventies -- and I'm some guy on the Internet, and as you know, any award given to anyone I don't approve of is forever after rendered a joke and a farce.

Skeezix: Obama won because McCain was an idiot who picked a stupid biatch as his running mate. Too bad you STILL can't handle the truth.


There was no way any Republican was going to win that election. Obama, Hillary, Kerry, whoever won the Dem nomination was going to win.

The Reps could have put up the love child of Mother Teresa and Ghandi, and the Dems could have put up the bald, pregnant, escaping from rehab Britney Spears.....the Dems would have won because of the legacy of Bush the Lesser.

GUTSU: Bungles: BillCo: What did she do to deserve it.  Obviously they should give it to Obama instead.

Obama won because the US had been in such a ridiculous mess for the previous 8 years.

We, the world, wanted the old USA back. The sane USA. And we got it.

So suck it up.

Haha really? I guess we no longer have the patriot act and gitmo is closed and boarded up. I suppose we're out of the middle east also? Face it any changes were just superficial.


We don't really give two shiats about your random internal politics, we just liked having a grown-up back at the world table.

The USA is terrifyingly powerful. Europe likes it when someone sane is at the helm. After 8 years of sphincter-clenching over whether a Neo-con puppet was going to blow up the world, Obama arriving was like the coming of Christ.

Objectively from our perspective, Obama has been and excellent president, but mainly because he's the real president, not a cipher for some Levi Strauss cabal.

OscarTamerz: But did she make a really neato PowerPoint presentation on an issue while doing exactly the opposite? That level of hypocrisy is the true test of a Nobel Peace Prize nominee.

Typical of those Euro types. After Obummer destroyed the meaning of the Nobel Peace Prize they want to give it to a girl who wasn't fast enough to duck.

Farxist Marxist: BillCo: What did she do to deserve it.  Obviously they should give it to Obama instead.

I recall the "WTF" moment I had when Obama won that lottery. In fact, the moment continues.


Hey, we were mostly respectful for the 8 years of your tyrant, you can kindly STFU and stand in the corner until our tyrant is done.

czetie: revrendjim: Bit of a feaux pas by the nominators. Nominations are supposed to be confidential. Publicizing it puts pressure on the committee to pick her.

Not exactly. The Nobel Committee itself abides by a rule of confidentiality for 50 years. However, strictly speaking, there is no obligation on nominators to maintain the secrecy of their own nominations -- although it is considered "bad form" for the reason you mention.

FWIW IMO Time should have made her Person of the Year -- her own bravery is remarkable, but in addition astonishingly good things happen all around in Third World countries when girls get educated.

/Also it's "faux pas".


Or maybe fausse pas if it's a feminine oopsy!

Hope she wins but since she didn't even win Time's Person of the Year, it is doubtful.
