    Then why the fuck are Republicans bawwing more than chickens in the morning over it? :eusa_eh:

    I've seen the standard screed both on and off this board today. "Gore, Carter, Yasser Arafat, and now Obama have received it!" "Obama has done nothing to deserve this reward." Same thing over and over in various threads.

    Alright, so you think Obama didn't deserve it and therefore the prize is worthless. Why bother commenting on it then? Why bother making arguments over it,etc? Wouldn't the best solution to just go :eusa_eh: it's not worth anything instead of acting like Obama has pissed in your drinking water?

    Just like my two cents. :eusa_eh:

    It became worthless when Obama won it.

    No, it became worthless when Henry Kissinger won it.

    The height of unintentional political satire.

    Why? Because what was at one point a legitimate award for service to the world has turned into a laughing stock because of corruption. The givers have made it worthless. And that's a tragedy.

    Legitimate award by who's standards? Oh that's right, you're putting some actual weight into a award for peace from a man who created Dynamite. Smooth. :lol:

    Besides, you mean people who YOU consider legitimate.

    Alfred Nobel, the man who endowed the award, invented dynamite, and in the process, accidentally killed 5 people, including his younger brother. Irony has always abounded for the Nobel Prizes.

    I'd like to see some evidence of this so-called "corruption" though.
