Skip to comments.The Free Republic "Obama wins 2009 Nobel Peace Prize" Quip Thread
Posted on 10/09/2009 7:06:00 AM PDT by grey_whiskers
Browsing Free Republic this morning, it seems like a lot of people are shocked by the choice of Barack Hussein Obama (mmm, mmm, mmm) as the 2009 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
Even non-conservative sources (see The London Times and The Taliban??!!!) are commenting with disbelief.
I think we ought to collect one-liners or jokes about it, for upcoming water cooler discussions.
Have at it!
Time for Michele "keeping up with Oprah" Obama to do another international shopping spree.
This is the worst news Obama could have had.
Guess who the last Democrat President to win the Nobel Peace Prize was?
Obama Wins Noble prize bombs Moon
Obviously it was awarded for the beer summit, where Obama’s racist side came to full bloom, and the public got to see what Black Liberation Theology was all about.
Did Al Gore have to give his back?
Kanye West Taking the MTV Video Music Award Away from Taylor Swift and Giving It to Beyoncé.
I hope for a cure for the common cold!
That means I win the Nobel Prize for Medicine next year!
I hadn’t heard about this yet, and would have sworn it was satire...
I’m embarrassed for the Nobel Committee. They probably don’t even appreciate how pathetic their syncophantic offering to their ‘god’ of peace really is. Especially since the nomination period for the awqard closed 2 weeks after the inauguration! I can only assume that back then they expected he’d have all the world’s problems solved by now...
It is pretty obvious to me that giving obama the nobel prize is an extremely patronizing insult playing upon his incredible arrogance. Obama will receive much ridicule for this. The Nobel committee stuck it to him, and even as leftist as they are, I think they meant to.
I can’t stand Obama and I think he deserves the ridicule, but even I am a just a tad embarrassed for him. Unbelievable.
Another Freeper said it first, but....
Hell, why don’t they give him the Cy Young Award for his girly first pitch at the All-Star game this year while they’re at it.
It makes perfect sense.
Obama is Moslem.
Plus, Islam is the “Religion of Peace.”
Therefore, he’s just won the award for “Biggest Moslem.”
mmmm.. mmmmmm mmmmm!
Barack Hussein Obama!
He is also expected to win the Stanley Cup, be crowned Miss America and gain the Triple Crown — by several lengths in each race.
If Jimmy Carter wasn’t alive I’d swear he had been reincarnated as 0bama.
Barry is now firmly ensconced in infamy with Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt ... both of whom were swcoialist at heart. This ‘prize’ is on the same level as all children getting a trophy for being in little league, not for winning or accomplishing anything, just for being in the league. So, Barry now has a plastic trophy for being in the Wilson-Roosevely league. [BTW, Jimmy Peanut also has one and John Feckless Kerry served in Vietnam.]
NEWS FLASH - Barack Obama appointed Archbishop of Canterbury
Now we know why Miss America invited Rush Limbaugh to judge... they were afraid the judges would award Barrack Obama!
Carter won, Obama too
Carter I, Carter II
We’re either descending down the comic pages or the dark ages.
I want to nominate Barry for the Home Depot “Biggest Tool” award.
He wins the ‘09 Nobel Prize
A “peace” of works who’s spewing lies.
Mmm, Mmm, Mmm — Barack Hussein Obama...
I figured it out this morning. We don’t have Barack Obama living in the White House - we have Forrest Gump.....
I guess they took the bribe money for the Olympic bid and sent it to the Nobel committee instead?
KarlInOhio gets drunk and runs up on the Nobel ceremony's stage: "Yo, Obama. Im really happy for you; Imma let you finish. But President Bush actually freed over thirty million people from a brutal dictator!"
My two cats were fighting this morning and I successfully broke it up before either lost fur. I didn’t give a speech about it beforehand. Does that disqualify me? Should I have given a speech but let them end it on their own terms? I get screwed every year. Same old winners! :(
Best quip came from a WH aide when awakened with the news.
Is it April 1st?
“Barack Obama ... because surrender is hard work!”
I thought the same thing....but in about 10 minutes he's going to "address" us all on this - and I'm certain it'll be a "HOPE" speech, versus one of 'I don't really deserve this' humility.
This is one 0bama speech I don't want to miss.
Saw this on another post:
“It wasn’t a Peace-Peace Prize.”
Awarded for the same reason he was given scholarships, the Editor of the Harvard Law Review, his political career as a community organizer, state legislator, senator and president—great P O T E N T I A L. All of which adds up to — as Websters Dictionary defines it: 1) “existing in possibility : capable of development into actuality, or 2) : expressing possibility; specifically : of, relating to, or constituting a verb phrase expressing possibility, liberty, or power by the use of an auxiliary with the infinitive of the verb (as in it may rain). It may develop into actuality, but I think there’s a greater chance “that it may rain.”
I'm not convinced that's less deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than the current winner.
In other news, Harvard has selected an incoming freshman with pretty good SAT scores and exceptional letters of recommendation as this years valedictorian.
John was in the fertilized egg business.
He had several hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets,' and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.
He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.
This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.
Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing.
Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.
John's favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!
When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, could run for cover.
To John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring.
He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.
John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.
The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well.
Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making.
Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.
Vote carefully this year, you cant always hear the bells.
Fresh off Olympic failure, Obama wins “Miss Congeniality.”
It's that good.
Not worth the paper it’s printed on.
President Barack Hussein Obama joins the exalted ranks of Jimmy Carter, the worst president of the 20th Century, and Yasser Arafat, an unrepentent terrorist and murderer. The Nobel committee today awarded Obama the Nobel Peace Prize. Pretty amazing considering Obama has only been president for 9 months and has accomplished nothing worthwhile. He has managed to destroy the American economy, tripled the deficit, and lost 5 million jobs driving the unemployment rate to nearly 10%. He has yet to accomplish one “peaceful” feat.
The Nobel committee said Obama has engendered “hope” by his insistence on disarming America of its nuclear weapons. Maybe they should re-name it the Nobel Hope Prize. Or maybe the Nobel Slobbering Sycophant Liberal Prize.
AW COME ON! don’t you think the (piece) prize will look good on the mantle next to his birth certificate? They both have the same amount of authenticity.
