Oh Jesus Christ....the Nobel Peace Price......REALLY???

Postby Bucharest on Fri Oct 09, 2009 7:49 am

Let me go ahead and beat a lot of people to the punch on this one, and I'm not even one of those Obama haters, because when it comes to politics, I've actually completely thrown my hands up in the air and hardly even pay attention after the fucking joke and complete debacle that was the last 8 years and what that moron did to the Republican party......but Jesus H. Christ.....WTF is that all about.....the Nobel Peace Prize...are you fucking kidding me??? If he's such a "bringer o' peace".....he might want to start closer to home, as in his hometown....it's like fucking Beirut up there. I'm not saying the man doesn't have the capacity to bring peace, especially compared to his predecessor....but let's try and leave the horse ahead of the cart on this one and let him finish his 10th month in office before we start handing out cookies and certificates.

(OK.....I've now filled my quota for politically-related posts for Q4......I'll be back in January.)

The Nobel Commitee should just come out as a group and shout FUCK YOU GEORGE W.BUSH from the tallest mountain in Norway because at this point it would get their message across just as well without continuing to make a mockery of an award that at some point was held in very high esteem.

In order to win the Heisman, doesn't a QB have to complete a pass first? The good news from all this is that we're out of Iraq and Afganistan, and Iran has agreed to cease their nuclear program ... hey, maybe this was a preseason award, and they were projecting his stats for the upcoming season like Dave Campbell and Phil Steele do.

Touche. My point was that it was just giving a highly esteemed award to an undeserving candidate.

The equivalent I guess would be Aaron Corp winning the USC QB spot, but Pete Carroll announcing that Matt Barkley would start in the Rose Bowl the week of the Heisman voting and the voters giving it to Barkley.

I still think it's crap that this guy took home the award in 1922.

Reagan ending the cold war = No Nobel Peace Prize
Obama being in office for a couple of weeks = Nobel Peace Prize

I think we should just rename it the "We Think GWB Sucks Prize" because that's all this really is and it's a shame.

It takes two to tango Barry.... Reagan was instrumental in ending the cold war but without Gorbachev also playing a crucial role it would not have ended.

Simon I definitely understand your point but Gorbachev wasn't really dealing from a position of power. Regardless of the fact that it took 1 1/2 to tango I think you'd agree that was definitely deserving of a peace award.
