No, seriously. These days, Americans only get the Peace Prize because the Nobel committee felt bad about the recipient’s spectacular public failure to successfully oppose George W Bush. Which is why I’m not as upset about this as other people: heck, when you compare Barack Obama’s record in that regard to Al Gore’s and Jimmy Carter’s the Nobel committee should probably be commended for bravely speaking truth about the not particularly powerful.
They need to rename the prize to something more suitable, though. The Nobel Got My Rear Kicked By Bush Prize, perhaps? Or does that not sing?
