Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize

OMFG. This is just too much. I can't really think of what to say. I'm just flabbergasted! Ooh! Goody! We barbarian Americans have finally won the friendship of the godless Eurotrash establishment!

The folks at Maggie's Farm (my favorite non-TML blog, btw) pretty much took what I was feeling behind my speechlessness and posted it in list form here:

1. Everyone should start their day with a good laugh, it scientifically proven to lead to better attitudes toward whatever we do, which is scientifically proven to lead to better results;

2. Because I can’t find any other commenter who believes he deserved it, it’s heartening that we can unite around common-sense;

3. Since none can justify it, commenters on other candidates for the 2010 congressional and 2012 presidential election may be more honest about those who run on empty records and words;

4. President Obama’s preparation for and delivery of an acceptance speech may distract him from doing more to weaken the US and allies and reward foes, thus furthering peace;

5. President Obama no longer actually has to do anything to receive a Nobel Peace Prize, which may reduce he further worsening the outcomes of the measures already taken, thus furthering peace;

6. All those living in countries wracked by conflict and those in countries where they are oppressed can relax instead of fighting or standing up, knowing that hope is enough to be rewarded for accomplishing nothing, thus furthering peace;

7. The Nobel Prize will fit in nicely to the new White House décor alongside the Obama chosen faux painting;

8. Displaying encouraging honesty, President Obama says “ ‘I do not feel I deserve to be in the company’ of previous winners, ‘transformative figures who've been honored by this prize, men and women who've inspired me and inspired the entire world through their courageous pursuit of peace.’ ”

9. I can look forward to President Obama’s picture officially being hung alongside Yasser Arafat and Le Duc Tho’s.

10. The 50-year old childhood book I have of Nobel Peace Prize speeches that inspire by the winners’ track-records will rise in value. Perhaps, President Obama will use the prize money to buy it from me.
