The Nobel Peace Prize

As if the Nobel committee had any credibility left to lose, they outdid themselves this time.  Let’s briefly review who did NOT win the Nobel Prize in recent years:

Mahatma Gandhi

Irena Sendler

Pope John XXIII

Dorothy Day


Now let’s see who DID win

2009       Barack Hussein Obama  “for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”

2008       Marti Atasaari                   ‘for his important efforts, on several continents and over more than three decades, to resolve international conflicts"

2007       Al Gore                                 for a Power Point presentation, er, I mean , "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change"[


Wonder what else is on SyFy?
