Nobel Joke Reverberations!

No, No, I misled with that header.....the Nobel award was made to Obama, and is a joke only in its lack of seriousness by the Nobel Committee!

At The Times Online Michael Binyon gives this analysis;

"The award of this year’s Nobel peace prize to President Obama will be met with widespread incredulity, consternation in many capitals and probably deep embarrassment by the President himself.

Rarely has an award had such an obvious political and partisan intent. It was clearly seen by the Norwegian Nobel committee as a way of expressing European gratitude for an end to the Bush Administration, approval for the election of America’s first black president and hope that Washington will honour its promise to re-engage with the world.

Instead, the prize risks looking preposterous in its claims, patronising in its intentions and demeaning in its attempt to build up a man who has barely begun his period in office, let alone achieved any tangible outcome for peace"

The news is full of words from astonished folks around the world.

The Nobel is indeed a JOKE!
