At least Obama didn’t award HIMSELF a Nobel
Posted by Dave Bath on 2009-10-15
Obama got a pat on the back from the Nobel Committee, then wondered (along with the rest of the world) about the justification.
Penny Wong, on the other hand pats herself grandly on the back about her "achievements" from recent talks with China.
Summary of achievements touted in the press release:
- We talked.
- We talked some more.
- We promised to talk more in the future
Now, it seems that the criteria for judging failure of her efforts would be if China threw a nuclear rocket at us, waited long enough for the worst radiation to blow over New Zealand, declared "Terra Nullius" and grabbed the coal and iron ore.
Wow! Given how all the scientists view climate change as a major threat to political and social stability, I reckon Ms Wrong is making space on her wall for next year’s Peace Nobel.
…but it won’t be like Obama’s who got it for not being Dubya. KRudd and/or Wrong can’t get it for not being Honest Johnny, because there’s no substantial difference.
