Oh ... that's just stupid

Maybe not quite as stupid as giving it to Yasser Arafat or Henry Kissinger, but pretty friggin' stupid any way you cut it. The guy ran for the presidency on a platform of perpetual war, for the love of God ... and so far that's the only campaign promise he's delivered on.

Hey, I have an idea! Let's posthumously honor Hunter S. Thompson with the Carrie Nation Temperance Prize! I'm sure Pablo Escobar's surviving family would treasure a DARE Lifetime Achievement Award, too.

If Barack Obama possesses so much as a shred of honesty, humility or honor he'll refuse the prize and ask the Nobel committee to give it to someone who deserves it. Cindy Sheehan, perhaps. Or Muntadhar al-Zeidi. Or how about some randomly selected citizen of Switzerland?
