Bang a gong

The President of The United States of America was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace today.

Wow.

“By awarding you its most prestigious prize, the Committee is rewarding your determined commitment to human rights, justice and spreading peace across the world, in accordance with the will of its founder Alfred Nobel. It also does justice to your vision of tolerance and dialogue between States, cultures and civilizations.  Finally, it sets the seal on America’s return to the heart of all the world’s peoples.” -Nicolas Sarkozy

Nice.

Obama himself admitted to not being certain he deserved the honor and saw it as less of a tribute than a call to action.  I can’t help but admire his lack of pretentiousness.  He is serious and sincere and if they would just let him do what we elected him to do.  What he came to do.  It is so painful to watch, overt cockblocking every time he puts a foot forward.  Nasty, senseless, painfully obvious obstruction for the sake thereof instead of reason or logic or common fucking sense.

It is clear to me that the Nobel committee intended to send the message that it liked the talk, but eagerly anticipated and encouraged the walk.  I’m confident that about sums it up.  There is no mystery here.  They realize the potential power for good America holds in her fists and understand that we now have a leader of the caliber, intellect and compassion to loosen those fists into hands for helping and shaping and lifting.

Seems as though we’re always at a crossroads, a critical juncture.  This President presides over the most persistently precarious positions and potential shifts of paradigm of any President in my lifetime at least.  The ill conceived placement of a single toe, and we stare nuclear holocaust, collapse of the world economy, famine and pestilence in a face so proximate, it’s collective exhale will wither the young, the infirm and most of the worlds crops.

Understand we flirt with disaster by the hour.

Most Hostess and Armour products will endure.  I think I’ll bury some to be safe.  Oh, and some Ramen.  There’s always a silver lining.  Something to snack on while we rot will mitigate the circumstances somewhat.  I’m hoping for blankets and comics until we liquify or sublimate to gaseousness.

Our man literally has the weight of the world on his shoulders.  He bears it, along with the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, with grace, dignity and humility.  What’s in play here is not just mutually assured destruction, but racism and bigotry and people with rotting teeth because they don’t eat their vegetables or brush their teeth or read the goddamn paper.

I am proud.  I am firmly of the belief that what stands between Obama, the American people and true, legitimate meaningful progress towards peace, justice and equity, is fear, ignorance, racism and stupidity so bold and heedless as to be unable to define itself, it’s reasons or it’s intentions.  These people are fucking nuts.

Our President received the Nobel Prize for Peace today.  The world roots for us and him.  After the eight years long nightmare we visited on the world by either endorsing or acquiescing to the Dick-in-Bush antipathy and odium for the rest of the globe, the civilized nations are looking to us and hoping, praying, that we will turn the destructive behemoth around.

That’s what this means.  This is what they’re asking us to do.  It’s why they did it.  Don’t be stupid.

It was no phantasm.  It was real and horrible and what it wrought will take decades to repair.  So western civilization is asking, beseeching us, to get back in the game of righting things as opposed to ignoring or tearing them apart.  We are all human.  Humanity is both our lowest and highest common denominator.  Above and beyond country, ethnicity, religious provocation or social and ethical imperatives, we are all the same species.  We are humans.  We are people.  All of us bleed, most of us love.

Still, people don’t or refuse to understand the import of such a momentous occurrence.

“It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working towards peace and human rights.’’ -RNC chair Michael Steele

Like who fuckhead?  Rush “The Human Shitsmear” Limbaugh?  Michele Bachmann?  Ann Coulter?  Hannity?  John Boehner?  Joe Wilson?  Cornyn?  Cheney?  Rove?  Hatch?  Rumsfeld?  Condi Rice?  Palin?

Oh, the list is sooooo much longer.  More than a gutter, more than a ditch.  A landfill littered with losers just like you.  Guilty and stupid.

Not exactly a roster of live and let live, compassion or peace, love and understanding.  Fuck you Michael Steele you ignorant, sycophantic, Uncle Tom piece of shit.  What we have here is a very good day for America and whomever pulls your strings is more sad and pathetic than even you.  You suck as a human being and a puppet.  How do you and yours sleep?

Drinks for my friends.

    Thank you waid.

  • Hi Michael!

    I wanted to pass along some fun videos on Barack Obama and his administration. With the international man of history winning a peace prize recently, this is perfect timing for 00Bama! It’s a video series of a 007 themed Barack sponsored by Comedy Central and Atom TV.

    We hope you enjoy it! Watch them here: http://www.atom.com/channel/channel_00bama/

    Thanks!

    and you forgot Glenn Beck, the Human Shitsmears angry little lap dog.

    To call him lying scum would be too kind.

    He sleeps at night believing he’d doing the lords work remember. Guns and God…it’s the American Taliban. What is this “Peace” nonsense?…there’s no $$$ in that.

    Sheezus, how did I forget that fucktard?

  • Joe:

    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the vacuous look in the eyes of their repugnicant friends? It’s as though their brains have been sucked out and replaced with the shitful rhetoric spawned by Fucks News to the point that they cannot carry on a meaningful conversation without spewing some nonsensical twisted logic hyped by Beck, Limbaugh, Hannity, Coulter and others.

    Here’s a typical conversation: How’s your boy’s team doing? (blank stare) I don’t know. How are things at work? (blank stare) I don’t know. You want to get together this weekend and go fishing or something? No. Did you see my new car? Yes. Okay, talk to you later. Yeah, later.

    What will it take to snap them out of it?

  • admin:

    I don’t know, in a lot of instances it seems as though that thousand yard stare is phenomena exclusive to political conversations.

    I know perfectly nice people who are reasonably intelligent but otherwise idiots when it comes to anything political.

    Anyone? Bueller?

  • Jonathan:

    The speech he gave in Cairo back in June to me, on it’s own, was worthy of a Nobel. I can’t believe how many of my liberal friends don’t get what the prize is about. “He just gives speeches” well Mandela just sat in jail. We’re not making penicillin here, it’s a peace prize.

  • admin:

    Agreed and good point.
