Debasing the Currency

I awoke to a supreme suprise this morning (along with millions of people who have seen the potential to live their lives free of tyranny begin to wither away once more in the face of American fecklessness) to see that our President has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Kudos, sir.

Although there seem to be many people who cannot understand how such a thing can happen so soon in his tenure (after all, it took History's Greatest Monster 22 years after he left office to receive his), I believe this seemingly inexplicable award is the result of concept best explained in the words of Mr. Obama's predecessor in the office:

"The soft bigotry of low expectations."

Either that, or the prize committee members all simply voted "present."

Five Norwegians cannot be wrong.

Vidkun Quisling said the exact same thing.

And yet he didn't win a Pulitzer or a Nobel for his best selling books- he was robbed!

Yes, but thankfully he did get Grammy for the spoken-word version, so there is that.

And, I hear he's got the inside track on this year's Heisman Trophy!

I think we can all say, "Heckuva job, Barry!"
