But you know, the Nobel Piss Prize is not as useful as a good roll of Ultra Soft Triple Ply Cottonelle TP, or even Charmin. And they are both worthy of the same purpose.
BTW - anybody ask what the Kenyan pretender plans to do with the million cash that is awarded?
Maybe send a gift to Soros for buying him a faux-presidency? Or order Leapfrog Educational Computer Games, fourth grade level, for all ACORN employees? Or maybe even fund a free VD treatment clinic for SEIU
thugs? The possibilities are endless!

Not sure if this comment should go here but I just want to get it to you in case you can do something about it. Since you view all comments before posting I feel comfortable sending this to you like this. Long live the Republic.

archive.org is the "Way back machine." This is a legitimate **ARCHIVE** of old pages. So in 2004, they called him "Kenyan born." The East Standard (of which this is the Sunday edition) is a Kenyan news site.

The noble prize is a farce! In 2007 Al Gore was given it for his unproven work on global warming instead of Irena Sendler, a Polish woman who risked her life to rescue 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw Ghetto. She smuggled them out in all sorts of manners and kept a record of their names buried in glass jars in the neighbor’s yard in the hopes of one day reuniting them with their parents. She was eventually discovered and was severely tortured by the Gestapo. She had her feet, legs, and arms broken in the process. On the way to her execution, her German captors were bribed to let her go. She was dumped somewhere in the forest like a bag of rubbish and officially reported as executed. She survived. At the end of the war she dug up all the glass jars in order to attempt to reunite the children with their families, most of which had died in concentration camps. She died in 2008. Prior to her death she lamented the fact that she hadn't done more or rescued more children.

When an unproven scientific theory is awarded with the Nobel Peace prize (or a farcical president) instead of such an amazing woman who risked everything and suffered unbelievable torment to save 2,500 innocent children and yet she still had the humility to be haunted for the rest of her life by the fact that she didn’t do enough, it demonstrates the real worth of the so called “Peace” prize. Irena Sendler is a shining example to us all. She deserves to be memorialized in the hearts of all mankind!

I knew the prizes in the box were cheap but this (O) is way below what cracker jacks would put in their box.

Ditto that, Redleg.

Thank you for bringing this amazing woman's story out. I had not heard of her before just now. I'll do my part to see that she is memorialzed in the hearts of a all mankind by sending your comments out to everyone I know.

Now I'd like to see a few people start rejecting that farce of a "prize".

Irena who? Al Gore invented the Intarwebz, and don't you forget it!

But seriously.. the Scandinavians are nowadays fatally libtarded. They've had it too easy and good for too long -- oil profits and lutefisk all around -- that after a generation of that they have completely devolved.

Under federal rules BHO, like any other hired or elected official, should be prohibited from accepting any monetary award or prize related to his office.
Of course someone would have to enforce that pesky little rule for it to have any effect. If we hear about it at all in the media it will probably be a lobbying effort for an exemption in the leader's case.

Wow, Redleg...Just wow.

I suddenly feel really, really sick to my stomach right now.

I have always known that the Nobel "prize" was never worth the ink it is printed in, but this has got to be a whole new dimension of craziness.

Instead of awarding the prize to an angel, they instead gave it to a lying, deceitful con-artist who makes Al Capone look like Jesus Christ.

Who is going to get a Nobel Prize next? BTK? AKA Dennis Rader, the Wichita Strangler?
