What about poor Boner? Where's his slice of the pie?
Isn't Al Gore giving a presentation in Madison today?
Yes, he is!Link
I bet the Clintons are feeling pretty hot under the collar right now!
I was thinking about Clinton too. He must be pissed.
The Dalai Lama is always thinking kind thoughts, it what he does.
Dalai Lama right now: WTF?
I'm sure he's wondering how many more Althouse threads there will be about Obama's spurious prize.
Bissage said...What about poor Boner? Where's his slice of the pie?Boner wasn't really very diplomatic, now was he?
Dalai Lama? I thought that guy with the funny suit in Iran would get it. Or maybe Hugo Chavez. They could have even shared it. Yep, those guys in Oslo are smoking something funny.
He's also going to receive $1.2 million. That's about 3, 4 years worth of work for Michelle at the hospital. He da man!WV: movendMovend on upmovend on upto the White House
White House = Twilight Zone
I wonder why the Nobel Peace Prize Committee doesn't award itself with the prize.
I don't think you get the whole Tibetan Buddhist thing ... it's not about thinking happy thoughts ... it's about not thinking at allaka satori
I wonder why the Nobel Peace Prize Committee doesn't award itself with the prize.Dick Cheney isn't on the Committee.
Well, you see, his achievement wasn't really "peace peace"....
Question- will he be allowed to collect and keep the prize money? As a sitting President does the money belong to the government- like other things they get- or will he be forced to give it to charity. Who does the money actually belong to? Just curious.
Al Gore is thinking that the world just got a little bit colder.
Obama Peace Summit!
Rush Limbaugh, was just handed 3 hours of material.
Peter V. Bella, I'm pretty sure it comes in the form of a sizable donation to the Committee to Reelect the President.
I read somewhere that the nominations had to be in by 10 February. So the award was only for his first two weeks at work. SWEET!!
Overheard on Twitter: "Somebody needs to buy Kanye West a plane ticket to Oslo."
Kanye! Funny. I will steal that one.
Six posts on one subject. This has really scandalized you, hasn't it, Ann?Good for you, Madame.
OMG.. I saw an email this morning b4 leaving for work and I thought it was a joke.what you think might be real is a joke and jokes are becoming real.or maybe its like Althouse says "I've never seen jokes as the main source of laughs".this is certainly a source of laughs.wv - cophiess - yes copious laughs (thanks for the help)
Here's a scary thought: Gorbachev won the same prize in 1990. What happened next was, to paraphrase Emperor Hirohito, was not necessarily to the USSR's advantage.
As for the Dali Lama: He is thinking Gunga-a-Lunga!
FROM THE BLOG OF ECONOMIST GREGORY MANIW AT http://gregmankiw.blogspot.com/Friday, October 09, 2009First-Year Grad Student Wins Nobel Prize in Economics! From the Associated Press (with some light editing):Pfuffnick's Nobel Economics Prize triumph hailed by manyLONDON — The surprise choice of first-year grad student Quintus Pfuffnick for the Nobel Prize in Economics drew praise from much of the world Friday even as many pointed out the youthful economist has not yet published anything in scholarly journals.The new PhD candidate was hailed for his willingness to tackle difficult problems, his commitment to improving the economic system, and his goal of bringing efficiency and equality into harmony.Professor Paul Krugman of Princeton, who won the prize in 2008, said Pfuffnick's award shows great things are expected from him in the coming years."In a way, it's an award coming near the beginning of the first year in grad school of a relatively young economist that anticipates an even greater contribution towards making our economy a better place for all," he said. "It is an award that speaks to the promise of Mr Pfuffnick's message of hope."He said the prize is a "wonderful recognition of Pfuffnick's essay in his grad school application."permanent link
I wonder why the Nobel Peace Prize Committee doesn't award itself with the prize.Funny!I wonder why he didn't get the prize in physics. He's made of atoms.
Uh Oh. This place is going to be a rocking today.Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy ride-I said that like Mae West would of said it.
Wonder if it has anything to do with today being the anniversary of che guevara's death.
Peace prize? He should win a piss prize. Obama's a doodie head with a butt for a face.< /conservative > < /thirdgrader >
This is great news for Republicans!
From the Nobel Prize Committee (via Michael Graham):"His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population."There's a lot more Chinese Nationalists than Tibetans, so dissing the Dalai Lama clearly advances peace according to the committee.
I’m all for beer summits (as some of you know) but isn’t this self-steam gig going too far? it's like the tired broadway line "i laugh and i cried". wv - rests - how can i rest at at time like this?
"His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population."Next year's winner will be McDonalds.
In other news, President Obama has been named MVP for the upcoming World Series. Although the World Series has not yet been played, Obama was named MVP in recognition of the first pitch he threw when the Washington Nationals played last year's World Series Champion Philadelphia Phillies.Obama was considered to be preemptively named World Series Champion himself, but was disqualified because he is a one-man team.White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the President humbly accepted the decision of the baseball commissioner.
Dude is killing pirates, thwarting and capturing terrorists, winning Nobels, what else can he do? And stock market is up AGAIN today. Jesus!
Is anyone leaf peeping this weekend?Pumpkin shopping?Wearing a fantastic expensive scarve with brill colored sweater?Are words like "cornocopia" and apple picking and funnel cakes going to be in your vocab this weekend?How is your fall shaping up?
@Henry You wrote:His diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world's population."Next year's winner will be McDonalds.But by that standard, next year's winner would be Osma bin Laden.
Just remember, you guys still back Dick Cheney, who might wind up tried and convicted as a war criminal one day. And now the guy you voted against, and who you bash all day, every day over everything he says or does, has won the peace prize. Maybe some of you are just evil!
The Novel committee folks are really the same folks from the Guinness commercial. ‘you know his going to get it – why don’t we give it to him now?‘His going to get it – give it to him now’ Brilliant!!
Dude is killing pirates, thwarting and capturing terrorists, winning Nobels, what else can he do? Barrack Hussein Obamammmmmm!mmmmmm!mmmmmm!
Just remember, you guys still back Dick Cheney, who might wind up tried and convicted as a war criminal one day.LOL!
Are farmer's markets on tap for the weekend?How about corn stalks or hay rides?Hot apple cider with a special cinnamin stick and paprika on top?How about a horror movie?Perhaps tail gating at an Ivy League football game?Rowing on the Charles?Time to put away the tankeys and unveil the athletic fit cashmere v neck sweaters in camel color with a white t underneath. Let's talk fall.
Put a fork in her .. Afghanistan is toast.
I am nominating Letterman for next year's Piece Prize.
Perhaps a day trip to Newburyport or Nahant or Swampscott?A walk along the beach with the rare clumbers in fabulous Marblehead?A spa treatment at Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires?Day shopping at Northampton while doing some lesbo peeping?A yoga class at Baron Baptiste?A realignment of chakras at Bikrim?Is Ptown or The Vinyard or Nantucket off season in the cards?The possibilities are endless.
Q: Why did Pope Benedict XVI faint last week?A: Someone told him Obama was converting to Catholicism.
The smart move by President Obama would be to thank the Nobel Committee and decline the award--saying he wants to actually acheive progress before being honored. That would be gracious, humble and smart politics (both domestic and international). My guess is he does not do that.
What color are you this fall?
What about "hot toddies"What a weird word Hot Toddies".Say it fast five times.
"And Al Gore. What's he thinking?"Pfff... my question is what the hell was the Nobel committee thinking. But it's a but useless to ask that at this point.
Althouse is off her rocker. Obama won this prize for things he said. If anyone is annoyed, it's his teleprompter.
What color are you this fall?Fall is one of my fav seasons. I usually go with black and orange which is just smashing with my jeans and boots.If there was a Nobel prize for fashion, I'd be da man.
The Michael Moore of OsloJohn Podhoretz - 10.09.2009 - 10:06 AM I can’t agree with my colleagues here on CONTENTIONS that a) Barack Obama should reject the Nobel Peace Prize or b) be embarrassed by it. The Nobel Committee chose him wisely because he does, in fact, represent the organization’s highest ideals.He is an American president queasy about the projection of American power. He is an American president who rejects the notion of American exceptionalism. He is an American president eagerly in pursuit of legitimacy to be granted him not by those who voted for him but by those who do not cast a vote and who chafe at American leadership. It is his devout wish that America become one of many nations, influencing the world indirectly or not influencing it at all, rather than “the indispensable nation,” as Madeleine Albright characterized it. He is the encapsulation, the representative, the wish fulfillment, the very embodiment, of the multilateralist impulse. He is, almost literally, a dream come true for the sorts of people who treasure and value the Nobel Peace Prize.It’s the most obvious choice, once you think about it, since Michael Moore won an Oscar for Fahrenheit 9/11.
Fabulous Hoosier.Very seasonal and appropriate.Say Kuala Lumper fast too. Very unusual word that Kuala Lumper-sounds like a porn star or drag queen.Ladies and Gentlemen please join me in welcoming Kuala Lumper to the stage to sing her stirring rendition of No Doubt's I'm Just A Girl.
The smart move by President Obama would be to thank the Nobel Committee and decline the award--saying he wants to actually acheive progress before being honored. That would be gracious, humble and smart politics (both domestic and international). My guess is he does not do that.Exactly. But I don't think he has the character to do such a thing.The Nobel Committee may have thought they were giving Obama an honour, but what they have done is make him the laughing stock of the world. And this on top of his failure in Copenhagen.Wait!.....maybe it is a double blind. They give him the honour to make him look even more foolish, narcissistic and weak.
Jason @ 9:26 lol.
Mitch said: "Here's a scary thought: Gorbachev won the same prize in 1990. What happened next was, to paraphrase Emperor Hirohito, was not necessarily to the USSR's advantage."But it did result in a more peaceful world, for at least a little while.
Oktoberfest this weekend: Masskruege and an oompah band.
This is the Nobel Prize for Best Dresser, not Peace.
