Nobel Peace Prize and President Obama

My first thought, on seeing the news that President Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize, was that SNL (Saturday Night Live) had decided to turn the parody level up to 11. If CNN is going to take SNL seriously, then SNL will make it practically impossible for CNN. There will always be room for CNN to demonstrate greater incompetence, but not much.

I wrote about the commotion about a SNL parody of the ineffectiveness of the President thus far in his rookie year Does CNN have Any Credibility Left? The awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize appears to have been based on the CNN investigative analysis of SNL.

I went to the news source. It seemed legitimate. I checked others. This story is true.

He is the titular head of a country that is involved in 2 declared wars. There is probably more potential for this number of wars to increase, rather than to decrease. Although President Obama did not start these wars, he does not appear to be ending them.

There was the suggestion that the award was rushed to throw support behind the potential for President Obama to produce change. After all, it isn’t as if they could have waited a year, or two, or three, to see if this politician actually accomplishes something more than a world tour. That might give some justification for this award. Should we change the name to the Rookie of the Year Peace Prize – Any novice leader, who has not started a war in the first couple of weeks of office can win.

If he is so inclined, he may nuke Iran. I’ll bet that would make the prize committee proud.

This makes you wonder who else was being considered? The North Korean Elvis impersonator, Kim Jong-il?

Martin Luther King did not just talk about having a dream. Apparently, these days just having the dream is good enough.

President Obama’s number one accomplishment. He became the borrower on the largest sub-prime loan in the history of like forever.

Should we rename this the Sally Field Prize? This is just Europe saying, . . . you’ve wanted more than anything to have our respect. The first time we didn’t feel it, but this time we feel it, and we can’t deny the fact that we like you, right now, we like you! this is like Europe telling President Obama that he has been favorited on Facebook.

A lot of marriages start, because the woman sees potential in the man. A lot of these marriages end in divorce, because the man does not use the potential the way the woman thinks it should be used. Maybe Europe should have asked for a pre-nup.

Maybe it is as some have suggested, the Not George Bush Prize. A prize awarded in the first year of every presidency that immediately follows the second term of a second George Bush. If you think that you have ever won something that had high standards, try winning this one.

President Obama has a lot of potential, but so does Sarah Palin. She might even be able to do something interesting for the talent part of the competition. Maybe it was the beer he shared to help make peace between Henry Louis Gates and James Crowley. That might be foreshadowing the way to peace with the Islamic terrorists. Hey guys. Let’s sit down like a bunch of adults and discuss this over some beer and hot dogs. Yeah. That’s the ticket. A Beer and Hot Dogs Summit.

Maybe the Nobel Peace Prize should have its name changed to the John Winger Prize.
