Parody dies another death

Obama has followed greats like Henry Kissinger, Menachem Begin and Shimon Peres in being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. I think George W.Bush was runner up.

Here's a chunk of the Reuters report:

Describing himself as surprised and deeply humbled, Obama said he would accept the award as a "call to action" to confront the global challenges of the 21st century.

"I do not view it as a recognition of my own accomplishments but rather an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations," he said in the White House Rose Garden.

Like he hasn't been humbled by Bibi and AIPAC.

Now America has launched well over 20 foreign invasions since WWII and Obama says that the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded as "an affirmation of American leadership on behalf of aspirations held by people in all nations". Perhaps parody isn't dead after all.
