Our President, Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the United States, has won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples," the Norwegian Nobel Committee said, citing his outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation.

I salute you Mr. President because the world sees the greatness within you, as I do. Winning the Nobel Peace Prize is an honor that only three Presidents have received - President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906, President Woodrow Wilson in 1919 (while in office), and President Jimmy Carter who was awarded the prize after leaving office in 2002. To put this into prospective, the President has only been in office about nine months, he is the second sitting president and the third of all forty-four to be honored, and he looks like me. Let me remind you that the last president only got a “shoe”.

The Nobel committee praised Obama's creation of "a new climate in international politics" and said he had returned multilateral diplomacy and institutions like the U.N. to the center of the world stage. I praise him for being sent to deliver us from evil. So I say to Fox, Caribou Barbie, the Drugster, the alcoholic, wrong-way Wilson, the racists and all the conservative haters – “If God is with you who can stand against you.”

This is a great day. Enough said…

Just a Season - a must read novel...
