There are only two things in this world that I can't stand...people who are intolerant of other people's cultures, and the Dutch.
  • I Nominate Miss Alabama For The Nobel Peace Prize 18 comments
    Oct 9, 2009 9:13 AM

    When asked during the question and answer section of a recent beauty contest what is most important to her, Miss Alabama replied "world peace".

    Given that President Obama was only in office about three weeks when he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize back in February, and hasn't really done anything for world peace since then, I think that Miss Alabama could be a formidable competitor next year.

    Granted, she hasn't made a slide show, like Al Gore, which gets you an automatic Nobel Peace Prize. But, I still like her chances since she was emphatic that "world peace" is a really big deal and, if achieved, would be so awesome. 

    I can't remember her name, but, given her outstanding resume, my selection for the Nobel Peace Prize 2010 is Miss Alabama!

    Obama winning the Nobel is yet-another lesson in how the world realy works. Al made a slide show and got the prize. Next life I'm gonna be a liberal government worker.


    Any story featuring Miss Alabama is worthless without pictures!

    Author’s reply » As a matter of fact, I often use beauty pageants to calibrate the Cleavometer.
    Oddly, although Miss Alabama is an impressive young lady, the Cleavometer actually drooped somewhat when she she mentioned world peace.
    Later, when Miss New Jersey was interviewed by the judges, the Cleavometer made a sudden jump from 8 to 10 when she was asked what she would like to see more of in the world and simply answered "cock".
    I guess I've always been attracted to a woman with an economic use of the language.

    read the Nobel charter: celebrating advancement of centralized politically correct humanism, which is either communist or fascist, and since Alfred liked government controlled private property instead of government owned, fascism. the award is granted for furthering fascism, and i would say BO is doing a fantastic job-- he deserves the award!


    at least gore had some staffers work a few hours on the gov'mint dime-- i hope they got the cash


    miss n jersey is a fine example of getting more from less, funny

    Author’s reply » Amadinijihad needs to put together a slide show or say that peace is really, really good or he doesn't stand a chance.


    Now, if he did a slide show that said "peace is totally awesome", he'd probably even beat Miss Alabama.

    Call me naive, but I used to have respect for the nobel prizes, all of them. I started to question that respect when Krugman got the economics nobel last year. With Obama getting the prize, after achieving nothing, that respect is irrevocably lost.


    The nobel prize now means about as much to me as an academy award. The nobel is now just a marketing tool for a left-wing worldview. Nothing more.


    Soon they'll be televising the awards ceremony and beyonce will perform between awards. Joan Rivers will be out front interviewing people as they arrive in their limosines and tuxedos.

    I nominate the whole country of Honduras. That they have the nads oust a corrupt law breaking president, to say NO to the entire Organization of Latin American States, to say NO to Obama, Chavez, Castro, and to want the kind peace and freedom that was so eloquently written in the Declaration of Indepenence, gives that impoverished nation the nod for me.


    For months now, they've been saying NO!


    GOOOH Central American style, with guts.

    Author’s reply » Wisdom,


    So, what you're saying is Miss Alabama needs to hold a press conference and press for forced sterilizations and more advanced surveillance systems in public and private places?
    That makes sense to me.
    Then, once she is the reigning Nobel Laureate for peace, she can have her sceptor converted into a high powered cattle prod, capable of electrocuting the weaker, less desirable members of society.
    Then, of course,she could visit children's hospitals in her tiara and electrocute crippled and terminally ill children in the name of "peace".

    Reminds me of this from the BBC website


    "When Henry Kissinger won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, the distinguished musical satirist Tom Lehrer decided that he could no longer perform. "It was at that moment that satire died," says Lehrer, "There was nothing more to say after that."

    I just heard the real reason Obayme won the award. He defeated the uprising on the moon with one single shot!

    YH, you are confusing nazis with with fascist; all nazis were fascists, but most fascists are not nazis, they are "social democrats" who believe in gov't controlled courts and provate capital, without all the creative eugenics.


    surveillance? crushing all dissent? uhm, my observation is BO is in favor of that!

    Author’s reply » If you've read anything about Zeke Emanuelle's triage health care plan and Holdren's forced sterilization ideas, you might be thinking Nazi.

    YH: Knowing your sensibilities, I can't believe that when suggesting Miss Alabama you misspelled "piece". I know you meant "Piece Prize".

    Good Lord, you had me there for a minute. I thought you were talking about nominating Miss Alabama from 1994. That was Heather Whitestone. She hardly deserves your nod for the Peace Prize for her answer to this question: If you could live forever, would you and why?


    Her answer: 'I would not live forever, because we should not
    live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever,
    then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever,
    which is why I would not live forever.'


    For that my friend, the category is the Nobel Prize for Literature.


    These mistakes have occurred before as in the case of Al Gore, who was mistakenly awarded the Peace Prize when the category in which he was awarded was actually intended to be Comedy.
