As it happens.

Glenn Beck advises to buy gold because the dollar is under attack. [Run commercial on FOX News for buying of gold.] Glenn Beck advises that the government is preparing detention camps and to buy gold. [FOX News runs commercial for buying of gold, then a commercial for men with stopped up urinary tracts, then gold again.]

In the comment mail here this morning: "[Obama] has really created e new international image of the USA. This will in effect reduce the number of threats as far as INTERNATIONAL terrorism is concerned."

Let's see: Al Gore -- Nobel Peace Prize. George W. Bush -- Unjust war Prize. Barack Obama -- Nobel Peace Prize.

Been laughing all morning with this news, not because president Obama deserves it, but because it seems it is not that difficult to get a Peace Nobel, you just have to try a bit! Get that Mr. Bush?

And to remember that in this last years news like this used scare the shit out off me.

Yes you can Mr. Obama and to tell the truth you deserved it, at least you've been trying.

This is a great excerpt:

"Bush and Blair definitely still deserve it," said Jan Simonsen, a right-wing independent member of Norway's parliament who nominated the two for the 2004 [Nobel Peace]prize shortly after the U.S.-led war toppled Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in April."

So close yet still a bridge or two too far.

This Norwegian politician are such a laugh, he probably works for the Norwegian Ministry of Silly Walks or something.

"Bush and Blair definitely still deserve it, ..." as I was saying, great comic material.

Gotta remember it's still the US here.

From the WSJ op-ed page, upside down logic, held by everyone in the minority party and then some:

Nobel Peace Prize might be bad because it might encourage Obama to halt war and bombing in Afghanistan. Seriously.
