After Thinking About it for a Bit

  • The Nobel Committee has not done Obama any favors
  • The Committee gave him the Peace prize to make it more difficult for him to bomb Iran (Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.)
  • If Kissenger won the prize, anyone can win the prize
  • They were trying to make him feel better after Chicago didn't get the Olympics
  • W brought standards so low, all you have to do is NOT be W to win
  • Bringing hope to the world is enough; you don't have to actually do anything
  • Declining the prize would be diplomatic suicide
  • Obama is the only one who could (did) accept it graciously and with humility
  • The Committee is actually a very conservative organization and they're building support to overthrow Obama
  • They think that by showing they love Obama the whole world will join in the love
  • Comments? Opinions?

That's my choice. The Europeans loathed W; Obama is so much better in their minds. (Mine, too.)

I agree with both of you. It's a dilemma, so early on. And I can't believe Gandhi never won.
