the Nobel Peace Prize...really?

Big A called me as I was on my way home from MOPS and told me President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.

WHAT?!?! Why?

I don't understand. We're still at war. His big time health care bill hasn't passed.

I'm just confused. There has to be someone who has accomplished something who deserves it more than our rock star president. I'm just a little annoyed with this news that there was no one more deserving of this amazing honor??? No way. I'm not that up on who else would be deserving but there are people who are advocates and activists for various organizations, diseases, etc. who have done something.

Did he win it for "most appearances on tv by a US President in a week?" Seriously, I'm so tired of seeing him on tv - everyone knows about the healthcare bill. Him being on tv 24/7 is not going to help it get passed; it's just starting to annoy everyone (even those who voted for him).

I'm also appalled at the appearance by the president on the advertisement for George Lopez's new late-night talk show. Seriously? Our president is not supposed to be an icon, a sex symbol. He's supposed to be a professional. Not telling George Lopez that he needs to change late night tv and that's a change he (Obama) can believe in. Put on a tie.

And Nobel Peace Prize givers - what were you thinking????


On another note: do any of you have Skype?

Totally Agree.. I was reading about that last night whilst doing a midnight feed.. I was slightly confused to why he had got this when there are still so many issues that need sorting out!!
Will hopefully have skype again when I can persuade the Mr that I deserve a snazzy new laptop!! :) x
