Forrest Gump, Cracker Jack, and Bo

Some situations are so ludicrous as to leave one's mouth hanging open with no words to speak.  This is certainly the former if not the later.

Award the Nobel Peach prize to Barack Obama?  This has got to be a joke, right?  If not it lays the final ax swing to the once venerable prize.  Soon the Nobel Peace Prize will be given out with each box of Cracker Jack.

Even Obama is trying not to laugh. “I do not feel that I deserve to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures”, says the President.  Finally, he speaks the truth!  He doesn't deserve this award and even he, the world's narcissist-in-chief, knows it.

Barack Obama leads a life more charmed than Forrest Gump.

And what is the the justification given by the Nobel knuckleheads? Thorbjoern Jagland, chairman of the Nobel committee, said the group, “in particular looked at Obama’s vision and work toward a world without atomic weapons."

Work?  What work?  Can one now win the Nobel Prize based on one speech to the UN and a press release?  Obama has made zero progress in jump starting the Arab-Israeli peace process — long the gold standard for Nobel Laureate credentials.  He was elected for his anti-war rhetoric yet he continues to preside over two wars while meeting today to decide how many more troops he will send into battle.  His is hardly a Nobel Peace Prize record.  Even Nobel Laureate Lech Walesa says this is a case of premature immaculation

Hey, you know what?  Today is Bo's birthday!  You know, the President's dog.  Despite desecrating Force One on his trip to the International Olympic Committee (something Obama does ever time he steps aboard), Bo has done at least as much as his owner for the cause of world peace.  They should give the award to Bo — in honor of his birthday if nothing more important.

Maybe somebody should check the addressee on that box of Cracker Jack.
