    It seems the Brits can see what the Barry worshipers cannot.

    The brits are not as easily fooled as some of our Barry lovers bones.

    The award is a joke now, not an 'honor.'

    tigerbob made an excellent post with links to all the major brit dailies.

    Accross the board they all agree Barry doesn't deserve this, even the left leaners:

    Looks like winning a Noble Peace Prize is like pulling a prize out of a box of Cracker Jacks. In my mind, it has become a meaningless award. Carter won it. Gore won it. Now Obama. Proves to me it is a bullshit award these days.

    ...has been for some time. I equate the Nobel shit to an international political Oscar/Emmy/Grammy/GoldenGlobe type thing such as when a select group of idiots selects a few amongst themselves to be patted on the back and given accolades for being popular and a really good ass-kisser.

    I wonder what Obama will do with the million or so dollars he gets. Will he redistribute that ill-gotten gain?

    Barry is on the air now talking about how much he 'deserves' it.

    What a douche.
