“What do you want, a cookie?”

US President Barack Obama has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his “extraordinary efforts” to promote diplomacynot be George W. Bush.

To paraphrase Chris Rock, you don’t give out a Nobel Peace Prize for DOING SHIT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO DO, you low-expectation-having motherfuckers! Ghandi was nominated 5 times AND NEVER WON.

The US still has troops in Iraq. The US strategy for Afghanistan is a mess. Gitmo is still open.

I’m a big supporter of Obama. I think he has the potential to be one of the world’s truly great leaders. But he has done absolutely nothing concrete to deserve this, and he really needs to acknowledge that or he’s going to get raked over the coals for it by the right.
