Dear Haters, we are going to go all Dave Chappelle on you this morning and scream, "In yo' face. IN YO' FACE!"
I awoke this morning to find that Prez 44 has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize! There's no downside to this people... none. From MSNBC:
OSLO, Norway - President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday in a stunning decision designed to encourage his initiatives to reduce nuclear arms, ease tensions with the Muslim world and stress diplomacy and cooperation rather than unilateralism.Nobel observers were shocked by the unexpected choice so early in the Obama presidency, which began less than two weeks before the Feb. 1 nomination deadline.
Already the wingnuts are saying he won because he's a rock star and hadn't done anything to deserve it, isn't that what they said about his election as well? So I have the same response for both issues: deal with it! And by the way, please go out to www.nobelprize.org and research the history as well as what they were looking for this year before you come at me with the "he didn't deserve it" nonsense.
Let's just admit that some folks are hating because they couldn't win their 5th grade science fair, some folks are hating because Obama just IS THAT DUDE, and some are hating because that's what they do.
I, for one, will be popping the bubbly later on as I do the happy dance. Love it when smart people are recognized for brilliance. So take a moment and pop a bottle, send President Obama some love. Congrats, Barry!
