Apparently Barack Obama has just won the nobel peace prize….
““His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population,” the committee said.
“The committee also said it gave “special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.””
The MacDoctor will now pause for a moment while you all catch your breath and stop laughing…
The Nobel peace prize was made for Obama:
In 2007, they awarded it to Al Gore for large amounts of hot air. Obama’s good at that, too.
In 2006, they awarded it to Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank for creating economic and social development from below. Obama has created new meanings for the word “economy”
In 2005, they awarded it to the International Atomic Energy Agency for tirelessly wanting to put uranium in reactors instead of bombs. Obama would like to do that, too. Especially with his own bombs.
In 2004, they awarded it to Wangari Maathai for her contribution to sustainable development. Obama would like to sustainably develop his presidency.
In 2003, they awarded it to Shirin Ebadi for her efforts for democracy and human rights. Obama’s watch-words…
In 2002, they awarded it to Jimmy Carter, former president of the US. Hey, Obama’s president of the US, too!
In 2001, they awarded it to the United Nations and Kofi Annan. Obama’s a United Nations kind of guy…
In 2000, they awarded it to Kim Dae Jung for peace and reconciliation with North Korea. Man, Obama’s on a roll…
I could go on, but it should be obvious to all that Mr. Obama fits the profile perfectly – he really is the ONE.
I won’t mention that in 1979 the Peace prize was awarded to Mother Theresa. That would be a bit of a stretch, even for Mr. Obama.
