Yep it’s true Friday, October 9th 2009 the sitting President of the United States was announced as the winner of the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.
Well good for him, I think you should have to serve at least a full 365 days before you get it but hey I don’t make the rules. And now President Barack Obama is in the company of former President Jimmy Carter…maybe thats not a good thing…but hey he’s also in line with former Vice President Al Gore…again maybe not the best thing…Well there’s Henry Kissinger…shit a war criminal…ok well Martin Luther King Jr. ok there we go we got one!
But really good for him, it will be interesting to see what he does with the over one million dollars that comes with the award…maybe he could put it in the health care fund!
Here are the Wikipedia pages if you care enough:
Oh and heres a fun side note there were three people nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize but were rejected by the committee: Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, and saving the best for last…drum roll please………….Adolf Hitler! Again they never even had a chance of winning but still the fact remains they were nominated!…wow…just wow.
