  1. While I might not agree to characterizing our Dear Leader as a warhawk, perhaps it was foolish to give the award to someone before they had had an opportunity to actually do something.

  2. We all laughed at this at the time. Barry did absolutely nothing, yet was awarded this prize. But in all seriousness, this is the problem with things like naming schools after a sitting president. You don’t know what they are going to do in the future.

  3. Hey, maybe now they can revoke the one they gave to Arafat, too. Sorry, but this is too little, too late, as Nobel has repeatedly discredited themselves on this one. It’s worth about the same as used toilet paper, at least if you ignore the fertilizer value of the TP, these days.

  4. Given that Arafat, Le Duc Tho and Rigoberta Menchu have all won the Nobel Peace Prize, it has as much value as the PolitiFact “Lie of the Year” award.

  5. I have a fantasy. (Settle down there, Beavis.)

    The Nobel Committee chooses to honor me with the Nobel Peace Prize. I mount the podium, reach into my suit coat and remove and don a pair of latex plastic gloves. Gingerly grasping the trophy making minimal contact despite being gloved I say:

    “You gave this thing to Obama. You gave this thing to Al Gore. You gave it to Jimmah Cahtah. You actually gave this thing to Yassir effing Arafat. Why would I sully my name by accepting this?”

    I toss the thing over my shoulder, followed by the latex gloves and leave the stage….

  6. That was an oversight, Swiftee. Fearless prediction — the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize will go to Hillary Clinton.

  7. Don’t become fixated on the idea that the Nobel Peace Prize has anything to do with “peace” anymore. It is a marker of tribal kinship.

  8. gl, isn’t the prize, like, gold, or something? And doesn’t it come with a Democrat slush fund size cash award?

    You can do what you want with yours, be as for me, I plan on putting it to a use more fitting the spirit of compassion for my fellow human beings, for which it’s known.

    …A lost weekend in Vegas for me and my posse featuring enough hookers and blow to make the full size TRLBRT feature presentation!

  9. GL, don’t forget to put the gloves in a hazmat bag.

    I’m with Mr. D. I will be surprised if the Nobel committee does not shower some honor on Mrs. Clinton this year or next.

  10. for those people who think Hillary is getting it before 2017 will it be because she got the maker of the video arrested?
