Nobel Peace Prize Back on Course

The Nobel Peace Prize is back on course, i.e. on a downward spiral approaching zero credibility. Last year's award to Yunis and Bank, a reasonable choice, can be seen as an aberration.

  • 2007 Gore and the IPCC: His Holiness Chicken Little and a self-appointed, self-aggrandizing pseudo-scientific bureaucracy.
  • 2005 ElBaradei and the IAEA: More bureaucracy, dedicated to enabling and empowering dictators and despots.
  • 2002 Jimmy Carter: For his philosophy easily summed up as "I never met at terrorist or autocrat I didn't like, except of course for George W. Bush."
  • 2001 The UN and Kofi Annan: See 2005.
  • 1994 Yasser Arafat: For grand theft and mass murder.
  • 1990 Mikhail Gorbachev: For rolling tanks over the Baltic States, but not over Moscow, er... much. Like giving a prize to a guy for not beating his wife.
  • 1989 UN Peacekeepers. Perverts, but so ineffective!

Who takes the Peace prize seriously anymore? At least they didn't give the prize to Gore in Physics. Remember the 1995 prize in Chemistry to the "Ozone Hole" guys? What? You don't even remember the "Ozone Hole?" It was the Religion before Global Warming.
