    The BBC doesn't joke
    yeah, I've seen half of the crap on bbc three, the man isn't kidding.


    at the end of the day, no president will be a total crowd pleaser, just loko at the reaction to the interest in instigating an nhs type service out there. I don't think he's done anything pheonomenal yet to deserve a nobel but hey..

    This is a brilliant idea.

    Every US President should be given a Nobel Prize at the start of their office, so they lose serious face if they try to then start a war. It can be like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    I just thought - it's an ADVANCE Nobel for Obama. Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Sarag Palin will almost certainly choke and die on their breakfast cereal when they hear about this, therefore, the world will be a better place!
    Nobody cares about your distaste for the American right. Really.

    *Sigh* Obama hasn't done anything yet, apart from be black. Well done him for breaking the mould and all that.

    Seems like he's been awarded it for being the opposite to George Bush, rather than anything he's actually done, don't get me wrong I like Obama's foreign policy much better, especially when he sent that message to Iran on their holy day but still it's not Noble Prize worthy!

    The award is premature as we haven't seen an awful lot materialise from his presidency.
