The Latest Nobel Joke: EU Wins Peace Prize
(l) Newly-designed Nobel Peace Prize------(r) Greek riots
(copied from the Orange County Human Relations Commission "Rusty Award")
First, it was Yasser Arafat. Then it was Jimmy Carter. Then it was Al Gore. Then it was Barack Obama. Now the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded-not to an undeserving individual-but to an undeserving organization, the European Union. Well, I guess things could be worse. They could have given the prize this year to Hamas, Hezbollah or the Muslim Brotherhood, but there is always next year.
I can't wait to get Nigel Farage's reaction to this latest outrage.
My prayers have been answered. Here it is.
The only question now is who will have the cojones to go to Oslo and accept it? I guess if the aforementioned 4 clowns had the cojones to do so, the EU can come up with someone who has no shame. Since Nigel has taken himself out of the running, I guess it is left to either, the Belgian Waffler himself, Herman van Rompuy, or the feckless Baroness Lady Ashton, most recently seen being spanked by the mullahs of Iran in a vain effort to get them to stop building a nuclear bomb, or Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the EU Commission. My guess is it will be Barroso, since being from Portugal, he probably knows what cojones means in Spanish (Balls-not pelotas balls, but cojones balls).
Meanwhile, the Nobel Peace Prize now means about as much as the above pictured Orange County Human Relations Rusty Award or perhaps even the Golden Penguin, handed out out each January to the Fousesquawk "Jerk of the Year". At least the latter award is more accurate.
Which reminds me; I have much homework to do. There are so many candidates to consider and so little time.
