Schadenfreude: Nobel Committee asked to strip Obama's Peace Prize

Well, Obama has fired more cruise missiles than all other Peace Prize winners combined. He’s still probably behind Arafat for the number of bombs actually authorized, fwiw. In any case, a couple of troublemaking cranks want Obama’s Peace Prize stripped.

Liberal Democratic Party of Russia leader and Vice-Chairman of the State Duma Vladimir Zhirinovsky released a statement today calling for the Nobel Prize Committee to take back the honour bestowed on US President Barack Obama in 2009. …

Bolivian President Evo Morales echoed the call: “How is it possible that a Nobel Peace Prize winner leads a gang to attack and invade? This is not a defence of human rights or self-determination.”

Best line in the story? It has to be this one.

Morales won the Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights in 2006.
