Thoughts for the Day:
The Nobel Peace Prize

1. Funny how many experts on the Nobel Peace Prize there suddenly are.

2. Funny that the extreme right despises the NPP so much. Maybe if there were a Nobel Violence Prize that'd be more their cup of tea.

3. It is odd that Obama would get it so soon.


4. Just not being George W. Bush might be worth some kind of prize in and of itself.

Did you see the NYT story I stole from here?

Before we delve into the debate about this prize, I'd like to stop and point out what a refreshing discussion this is! Instead of asking whether or not our President will, in fact, be listed in history as the worst President of all time, we're asking whether or not our President is really worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.

That's a win in my book.

[Snark]A colleague here called this the "Fuck you George W. Bush Nobel Peace Prize."[/Snark]

[Serious]Spencer Ackerman has an excellent short piece that builds on a paragraph from Obama's remarks.
