Am I going crazy, or Obama just win the Nobel Peace Prize?
...I think cedara was right here. When the Conservatives find out, I am going to need so very much popcorn.
Current Mood: surprised

Given that half of what they're going to say will be absurd (usually highly untrue) shit about Norway, I'm going to need a drink.
Booze and popcorn. Sounds like a fun evening.

Slightly random, but ok. Considering who else they've given it to, that's not the worst they could have done.
It is going to be absolutely epic once America finishes waking up though.
He's not the worst person to give it to, but it strikes me as somewhat... premature? I'd be less surprised if it had been in a few years, when some of the good stuff he's started has actually been completed.
But yes, the reaction is going to be insane.

I'm running on the exceedingly huge cynicism you get after the leaders of your local political parties get given it shortly after behaving in a distictly inceindary and non-peace-mongering manner, so really, he hasn't started any riots, he's doing good...
This time, I get to sit and watch the heads explode at a safe distance.
Oh, ouch. I'm sorry that had to happen to you.
Yeah, the brain asplode aspect is probably going to be the best part of all this.

In fairness, we mostly just pointed and mocked. Its not like you can take politics here seriously and stay sane.
Its making me nearly, nearly want to watch Fox. I think I'll see what the Daily Show says first though.
There are times when all you can do is point and laugh.
Oh God, the Daily Show. That's going to be interesting. As will Fox, in an entirely different way. I shall have to do some YouTubing tomorrow.
You may have a point there, if not exactly the one the Nobel Prize Committee was aiming for.
I'll admit that personally I think the best thing about all this will be pointing and laughing at the frothing right wing.

This almost makes me want to watch Fox News for the LOLS. Almost. If I weren't convinced it would make me hypertensive after 15 mins I totally would!
I hope someone YouTubes the best bits of wackiness. And then links them to me.
