Breaking News: Nobel Committee is now a Political Action Committee

This morning, the Nobel Committee proved to the world that it has no legitimate interest in awarding the Peace Prize based on concrete accomplishments and has instead chosen to use the prize as a tool for political manipulation.  Let me be clear:  Alfred Nobel’s vision was that the Peace Prize would be awarded for concrete accomplishments, not for vague intentions or political popularity and by using the Peace Prize as a political tool the Nobel Committee has reduced itself to just another political action committee and the Prize to nothing more than a political tool.

That a president who is currently presiding over two wars and who is seriously considering sending an additional 40,000 troops into battle in Afghanistan can be awarded a prize for peace is shameful and those who cannot see this obvious absurdity are blinded by the same ideological biases as the Nobel Committee.
