Dan from New York:
All kidding aside, Mr. Obama should feel right at home when he's presented with that shiny medal. Maybe he'll start wearing it around his neck all the time - like a sommelier.
2009: Barack Hussein Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize. Former recipients include:
2005: MOHAMED ELBARADEI (joint winner). He's done such a nice job with Iran.
2004: WANGARI MAATHAI. The Kenyan ecologist peacefully teaches that the AIDS virus is a biological agent deliberately created by the Man.
2002: JIMMY CARTER JR., former President of the United States of America. A true cosmopolitan, he has undermined the foreign policy of his own country and vouched for the bona fides of tyrants and murderers all over the world. Gave the Ayatollahs their big break.
2001: UNITED NATIONS, New York, NY, USA. KOFI ANNAN, United Nations Secretary General. Among other things, they have respectively served as the vehicle for, and presided over, one of the biggest scams in history.
1994: YASSER ARAFAT (joint winner), Chairman of the Executive Committee of the PLO, President of the Palestinian National Authority. A cold-blooded murderer both before and after receiving the award.
1992: RIGOBERTA MENCHU TUM, Guatemala. She is the notorious Guatemalan faker and author, sort of, of I, Rigoberta Menchu.
1988: THE UNITED NATIONS PEACE-KEEPING FORCES New York, NY, U.S.A. Notwithstanding rapes and sex abuse committed by the team in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea and the Congo, still doing fine work all over the world.
Nobel Fun Factoid: This year's Nobel Peace Prize winner (Our Esteemed President, peace be upon him) recently refused to meet with the winner of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize, the Dalai Lama, in an attempt to suck up to China.
