    my personal favorite!

    Telegraph: Obama's Won the Nobel Peace Prize -- WTF?
    !:lol::lol:

    Barack Obama has won the Nobel Peace prize and I'm still reeling at the shock. Most of us are, I should think. Here are my theories as to how it might have come about:

    1. Unlike in most of the rest of the world Obama Kool Aid (TM) remains Oslo's most popular beverage.

    2. The Norwegian prize committee's sense of irony is growing ever more sophisticated, as it hinted when it gave the prize in 2002 to comedy ex-president Jimmy Carter, and hinted more strongly when it gave the prize in 2007 to climate-fear-promoting comedy failed-president Al Gore.

    3. The other candidates on the shortlist were Robert Mugabe; Osama Bin Laden; Ahmed Jibril; and the late Pol Pot.

    This couldn't possibly be true Willow because as we know the world loves us now that we don't have Bush and we overcame our racism by voting for a guy because of his skin color.

    Israel had good things to say about Obama and the Jewish people overwhelmingly support the Democrat Party. Where are the conspiracy theorists when you need 'em?

    Not international, but I thought this paragraph from Time is worth a read:

    LOL. I think that this is going to turn into at least a three day wake for Conservatives mourning the awarding of the Nobel to President Obama.Darn Squareheads really put a burr in their saddles.:lol:
