The annual clown prize, also known as the Nobel peace price has been awarded to the EU. The prize is awarded for screwing up the economy, especially in south Europe and inspiring the greeks to dress up in nazi uniforms to welcome Angela Merkel.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee in Oslo awards the Nobel Peace Prize to the European Union for peaceful reconciliation after World War II and spreading democracy.
Hmmmm.

I'm starting to see a pattern of poor decision making on the part of the awards committee.

I'm just curious how they came to this conclusion. I was in Yugoslavia right after the war and that was messed up.

When Obama can win one for just being POTUS is a clear sign this "peace" prize has to be scrapped.

Many saw it as a down payment on Iraq and Afghanistan and he has duly delivered. He's ended the Iraq war and says he will be out by 2014.

It's kind of odd when you have winners like Martin Luther King, Gorbachev, George Marshall, and Mother Teresa along side Obama and the EU.

I'm not a big fan of these pity prizes lately.

He has done no such thing, but you spilt some Kool-aide on your shirt.

He has still done nothing that deserves a "peace" prize.

He actually was increasing the number of people at war while accepting a prize for peace...

You don't normally award prizes for things people promise to do in the future.

EU and Obama are definitely jokes, but that doesn't mean the other winners necessarily deserved them as well.*cough*

Lets see who has won.

Al Gore- He made a movie about global warming.
Obama- He won because he was black.
EU- They won for I don't know what.

And every day the Swiss are grateful that they aren't part of the EU.

while I think the award is indeed a bit silly, to not recognize that the award is aimed at Europe's amazing ability, since 1945, to not spend every other year trying to kill each other, is rather fucking remarkable.

I mean, to not "get" that, one has to be "history-challenged"....to say the least.
