The Mother Of All WTF Moments

Barack Obama, the definition of Image over substance, has been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for being elected president. That must be the reason, considering that the closing date for the Peace Prize was February 1st 2009, just two weeks into his presidency.

The reputation of the Nobel Peace Prize has been slipping for the past 20+ years, but today's announcement has pretty much relegated it to the class of the coveted "Silver Sow Award."

After this action by Norway's Nobel Committee, that puts the "No" in Nobel, one is left to wonder what's next for this do nothing dufus... a pre-posthumous sainthood from the Vatican???

WTF is an understatement. Perhaps not being able to achieve a damned thing so far is "peaceful". Perhaps it's because he's the first president of color.After all, it's always the white guy who starts all of the violence on the planet. At least it's nice to know that they didn't give it to another U.S. citizen and all. Obama, you done Kenya proud!

A lot of people are saying "I can't believe they gave Obama the Peace Prize", to which I'd say "I can't believe Fox News gave America George W Bush". At least some good is coming as a result of the former.

But I only just realised that it's an ADVANCE Nobel. If Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Sarag Palin choke and die on their breakfast cereal when they hear about this, the world will be a better place!

Even Obama said that he didn't deserve the damned thing. What a jackass!
