    I like to go to Larry "Whitey Tape" Johnson's site for a laugh. As usual, the little boy and his commenters don't dissappoint:

    Nobel Gets Punk’d
    By  Larry Johnson
    Email: larry_johnson@earthlink.net

    Where is fucking Ashton Kutcher? I am sure he is skulking around Oslo whipping up mischief and mayhem. There is no way that today’s announcement of a Nobel Peace Prize is not an upcoming episode of Punk’d. If he could snooker Kanye using Jesus then it only makes sense to go after the Big-Eared Hawaiian Kahuna.

    But there are some other possibilities to consider.
    The Nobel Committee is now getting involved with the Special Olympics and, as a conciliatory gesture to the United States, decided to give Barack a kind of "participation" medal/ribbon in lieu of actually getting the Olympics. If he has the Noble committee send the medal to Chicago then he can truly claim, "I brought home the gold."

    I like these two comments:

    Done, Ferd. I just emailed them my award as most ignorant Norwegians and urged them to come to CA to pick up their prize and see CA and our 12% unemployment foisted on us by this faux American.

    Oh...forgot. Anything negative he inherited. Anything else he claims he created. Did I just hear him say he ended a war in Iraq?

    The current unemployment rate is Obama’s fault? Thanks for the keen economic analysis, Rush.

    I'm sure if I dug deep enough I'd find someone saying their patron saint of bat-shit-crazyness Palin should have won it.

      She thinks she is describing someone who called them on their bullshit. But what she is really doing is describing the GOP after 9/11.

      When your mommy tucked you into bed at night, Freedom Fighter, she propably checked under the bed for monsters. She told you "Night nighty, little FF. There are no monsters under the bed."

      When your pet gerbil died Mommy and Daddy told you "Don’t cry, little FF. Your gerbil is up in gerbil heaven with the most wonderfulest gerbil maze ever."

      Now you are a big boy, and mommy still provides you with food, clothing and shelter, and great big snuggle hugs when you get scared.

      Too bad nobody ever told you that there are people in the world who want to kill you, FF. Very bad people. People who would roast you alive, blow you to smithereens, or even worse things. There are people out there who hate, hate, hate you because you are an American, and they would kill you without a second thought.

      You are not only boring, you are incredibly naive

      Projectionism from one of the sad pants wetters.

      You should talk to the 2 WH aides who said the same thing to Stephanopoulos if you have a problem with the word "punked".

      Two key White House aides were both convinced they were being punked when they heard the news, reported ABC News' George Stephanopoulos.

      "It's not April 1, is it?" one said.

      I have no use for Larry Johnson but let's not pretend that he was the originator of the surprise expressed about this prize.

        And I sure am glad that you pointed out that white house staffers being surprised by this is exactly the same as part of my bolded text:

        If he could snooker Kanye using Jesus then it only makes sense to go after the Big-Eared Hawaiian Kahuna.
        But there are some other possibilities to consider.
        The Nobel Committee is now getting involved with the Special Olympics ...

        Thanks for the help. I never would have equated surprise with hate without it.

      credibility down the toilet with that "whitey tape" nonsense, or has he so deluded himself that he's unaware of that fact?
