Obama wins Nobel peace prize


Never has one single man been saddled with so many expectations.  Barack Obama, not having enough pressure being President of the United States, is now the 2009 recipient of the Nobel peace prize.

Are anyone’s shoulders that broad?  Why would we want to hang the world’s hopes on someone who already has far too much on his plate.  Two wars, a fractured House and Senate and a lingering terrible recession hangover should be enough but, no, now he’s being burdened with either congratulations on what he’s done (?) or will do to make the world a safer place.

I like the man.  Hell, I REALLY like the man but this is just unfair.
