Peace Prize FAIL

(Click to enlarge, if you so wish.)

According to Donald, this is similar to an actor being selected for an Academy Award based on his claim/promise that his acting in his next film is going to be incredible. ("Just wait and see. You won't believe your eyes! I'm gonna be phenomenal in my next role!!") Only, chances are that the Academy would be more stringent in its selection process than were those who awarded this Peace Prize.

Really, what were they thinking? Everyone-- even O's supporters-- seems to agree that this was a ridiculous decision.

P.S. Anyone unfamiliar with FAIL Blog may not understand the joke. . . Visiting that link will clear things up.

“The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists – the Taliban and Hamas this morning – in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize,” DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO. “Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize – an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride – unless of course you are the Republican Party."
Oh, please.
Real mature, DNC. (Not that I expected maturity, of course.)

So far, it seems that most people are criticizing the committee that gave the award more than Obama for receiving it, but we mustn't let that get in the way of comparing Republicans to terrorists.

One final thought before I move on to more important things:
How can anyone take real pride in an honor he hasn't earned? However, considering that a previous recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize (Yasser Arafat) was himself a terrorist. . . How much of an honor is it, period?
