The Best Thing About Obama’s Nobel Prize Is…

…it’s driving the Rethugs, and especially the neocon wing of the wingers, over the edge.

Come to think of it, maybe that figured into the committee’s reasoning.


  1. I still believe that McCain threw the election on purpose by picking Palin. If you watched his Presidential Race in 99, this latest was a 180degree rotation in to opposite land. Most of the time he didn’t look sincere. I think he got the the Hijackers back for ruining his beloved Republican Party.

    I know that song.
    The battle lines were drawn election night when McCain/Palin couldn’t manage to steal it. Not for lack of trying.
    I think it’s great that Obama won. Now we know for sure how the rest of the world views the Obama Administration. It feels so good to know that it is viewed with respect again after so, so long. It affirms my belief that our so-called enemies are happy to dialogue with us again.
    Now all we have to do is stop any rethugs from being reelected to Congress. We need a whole lot more Progressives in those seats. Then maybe the Democrats won’t be so lily livered and actually get things done.

    Here’s how the Rethuglican National Committee reacted:

    “The real question Americans are asking is, ‘What has President Obama actually accomplished?’ It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights. One thing is certain – President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.”

    The DNC responds with attitude:

    The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists – the Taliban and Hamas this morning – in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize,” DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO. “Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize – an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride – unless of course you are the Republican Party.

    Well, it’s back to the future. From a protest song popular during my high school daze:

    For What’s It’s Worth
    Buffalo Springfield

    There’s something happening here
    What it is ain’t exactly clear
    There’s a man with a gun over there
    Telling me I got to beware
    I think it’s time we stop, children, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down

    There’s battle lines being drawn
    Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong

    Young people speaking their minds
    Getting so much resistance from behind
    I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down

    What a field-day for the heat
    A thousand people in the street
    Singing songs and carrying signs
    Mostly say, hooray for our side
    It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down

    Paranoia strikes deep
    Into your life it will creep
    It starts when you’re always afraid
    You step out of line, the man come and take you away

    We better stop, hey, what’s that sound
    Everybody look what’s going down

    Good point.

    Just for dramatic effect, maybe we could get the Catholic Church to canonize Obama in expectation of his eventual sainthood.

    That should cause winger Catholics like O’Reilly, Buchanan, Bennett, and Hannity to foam at the mouth, spittle flying. Could be a workable premise for a hit reality show.

    Oh, wait– Glenn Blech already has that one covered.

    Never mind.
