You're talking about stuff I haven't done yet in the past tense and it's driving me crazy.
We don't often get all political up in this piece and this isn't so much a political comment as more a rhetorical question to express incredulity.
By now you've heard that Barack Obama has been awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Normally, I don't get too concerned about these things because they're so subjective and often make little sense to my small brain.
But this time I have to ask one question: What was so impressive and peace creating about Obama's thirteen (13) days as president* that merited a nomination, let alone dominance over the rest of the planet of peace pursuers?
I personally made peace many times among my kiddos during 2008 where there was no peace and I didn't even get a nomination? That's an outrage!
Seriously, and interestingly enough, at least one commentator thinks Obama should turn it down. That might be a great PR move, actually. Rush Limbaugh thinks this is a "greater embarrassment" (for Obama) than not getting the Olympics.
P.S. I wonder if Kanye is going to show up at the award ceremony to suggest someone he deems more worthy.*The deadline for 2009 nominations for said Nobel Peace Prize was February 1st, 2009.
