Video link, kinda funny, mirrors all the vanities about the "Peace Prize". Gotta love those progressives from Norway.

With apologies to Churchill:

Never in the field of human endeavor have so many awarded so much to so few for so little.

Well, I'm off to the vomitorium.

I literally feel like I don't live in America anymore. It's so bizarre. This video doesn't even scratch the surface of how mindbogglingly unreal the Obama worship is.
First it was the will.i.am videos, the Obama HOPE and CHANGE posters... then the indoctrinated children and the CNN healthcare dance troupe. Now this.

Really, I think it's just a new found form of emperor worship. Some will be quick to poo-poo the comparison, but I believe it to be apt.

I have a theory that there is a certain psychosis associated with post-modernism's lack of absolute principles that can only be relieved through some form of worship in an absolute, definable person. With all the flimsiness, people take comfort in some concrete representation--if it can't be beliefs, principles, or ethics, it will be in an amiable philosopher king who can dispense justice. In any case, I believe the religious syncretism of Rome to be very similar to the postmodern worldview today

If only Obama could win one of these awards.
Just kidding. Sort of. ;-)

I saw a lovely wiki entry that is now no more on the Nobel Peace Prize .

The Nobel Peace Prize (Swedish, Danish and Norwegian: Nobels fredspris) was one of five Nobel Prizes bequeathed by the Swedish industrialist and inventor Alfred Nobel. But as of 2009, the Nobel committee officially indirectly announced they no longer cared about actual achievements, and awarded the prize to current US President Obama for; spending money the US didn't have, reaching beyond the governments' powers and interfering with management of publicly shared businesses, and filling the upper echelons of the US government with under-qualified, and entirely unqualified personnel.
