I’m not sure that I’m ready to let go of the ridiculous and inappropriate gift of a Nobel Peace Prize to an ineffective American apologist like President Barack Obama. As Glen Beck pointed out – the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to someone who hasn’t really done anything is not unusual in this day and age of “participation” awards. Wesley Pruden expressed many of my feelings and provides some interesting context in PRUDEN: Obama's ignoble prize: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/oct/13/pruden-obamas-ignoble-prize/ However the very best depiction might be the editorial cartoon "The 2009 Nobel Prize Recipient" at: http://www.washingtontimes.com/photos/2009/oct/14/59752/
There seems as if there will be no end to the ridiculous accolades for a man of mysterious background and sparse accomplishment. He wrote two autobiographies yet we know very little about him. He conducted an “historic campaign” not because he is half black, but because he is possibly the least qualified man to ever run, much less win the Presidency. Now the irony wrapped in an irony, he “wins” the Nobel Peace Prize – even days later I remain stunned.
