Giving the Nobel Peace prize to Al Gore was a sham,
But Giving it to Obama is a joke.
It is also quite risky. With the mess the Obamateur is making of international policies, his reckless empowerment and appeasement of pretty much every thug-politician and rogue state on the planet, there are by now some serious and growing risks that he may actually corner himself into engaging the U.S. in all sorts of devastating conflicts before his term is thankfully over.
The joke would then be on the Norwegian nutcases — But then again, these guys did give their prize to Arafat.
So they must have some kind of a sense of humor, I suppose.
