Why the Nobel Peace Prizes are whacked…October 13, 2009
Jerry Pournelle lays out why the Nobel Peace Prize goes to leftwing losers, and why the other prizes go to people who are deserving by actually having done something positive. Go read it. Basically, when Norway and Sweden divided, Sweden got the other prizes and uses an actual board of scientists to make the selections, and Norway got the Peace Prize and uses a bunch of nutjob leftists. It’s kind of like other divorces – some kid always comes out messed up.
Bush 43 never got one, after liberating what, 50 million people in Iraq? And Reagan only ENDED THE FRAKKIN’ COLD WAR!!!
It’s one of those awards you don’t hope you win, nowadays.
