The Prize

By now you certainly know that our president, Barack Obama, has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Maybe you will be surprised to learn - or maybe you wouldn't - that the conservatives are claiming that he doesn't deserve it. There is even the claim that Obama being awarded the prize is an example of "afirmative action".

Now will you believe they are egregious racists?

By the way, the Nobel committee said the following:

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.

It might be worth considering that the decision of the committee was a thorough rejection of the "cowboy diplomacy" of our previous administration.
