Obama Wins Nobel – Next Up: Heisman Trophy!

by Joey deVilla on October 9, 2009

obama too soon

Speaking as a guy who prefers President Obama over anyone the increasingly deranged Republican Party has to offer, I have to say that no, he didn’t earn a Nobel. Wonkette editor emeritus Ana Marie Cox summed it up quite succinctly on Twitter: Apparently Nobel Prizes now being awarded to anyone who is not George Bush.

Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo has this to say:

This is an odd award. You’d expect it to come later in Obama’s presidency and tied to some particular event or accomplishment. But the unmistakable message of the award is one of the consequences of a period in which the most powerful country in the world, the ‘hyper-power’ as the French have it, became the focus of destabilization and in real if limited ways lawlessness. A harsh judgment, yes. But a dark period. And Obama has begun, if fitfully and very imperfectly to many of his supporters, to steer the ship of state in a different direction. If that seems like a meager accomplishment to many of the usual Washington types it’s a profound reflection of their own enablement of the Bush era and how compromised they are by it, how much they perpetuated the belief that it was ‘normal history’ rather than dark aberration.

You can expect to hear much sturm und drang from the already-verging-on-deranged conservative side of the political spectrum; even among officials, the expected window of graciousness through gritted teeth has been skipped. So much for their calls for people to “Respect the Office” when their guy was in charge.

Were I in the President’s shoes, I’d say: “Thanks guys, I’m honoured, but I’m sure that there are more deserving people and I haven’t earned it…YET.”

Back in April. Adam Sacks of the blog Adam Thinks created this so-funny-because-it’s-true graphic:

Adam Sack's poster featuring a Shepard Fairey-ized Obama-as-Hitler poster:  "Make Up Your Mind / He Can't Be All Four"

After getting so many requests, he’s decided to make it a t-shirt. You can order it online from Printfection for US$20.00:

Plus Ca Change…

by Joey deVilla on August 14, 2009

The strange accusations about Barack Obama coming from the American wingnut brigade – Socialist! Radical Muslim! Foreign-born! – are nothing new:

Mr. Miyagi to Obama: “Big Ups, Playa!”

by Joey deVilla on January 9, 2009

For some reason, this photo-comic in which “Mr. Miyagi” (played by Pat Morita in the Karate Kid movies) gives mad props to Barack Obama amuses me to no end. I decided to enhance it by adding a caption to the bottom":

Photo comic featuring Miyagi and Obama demonstrating their Crane Technique.
Found thanks to Giles Bowkett.
