Obamalatio Watch: Lamest Collection of "Reasons" for Obama's Nobel Yet

Closet Obamalationists Ben Adler and Daniel Stone writing In Defense of Obama's Nobel Peace Prize @ Newsweek.com dig deep and come up with these whoppers:
And/or it could be for his achievement for being elected president on an international platform that the Nobel committee considers a refreshing humanitarian turn for the world's great hyperpower. Or for giving his moving speech on race in Philadelphia, or for addressing 200,000 Berliners, or his conciliatory speeches at the last two Democratic conventions, or his pragmatic address to a Chicago antiwar rally in 2002.

Let's review.

1) A President of the United States is not elected internationally.

2) "Moving speech on race in Philadelphia...." Oh yeah? Quote it. No googling.

3) "Conciliatory speeches" to Democrats? Is the prize given for making the Democrats "peaceful?"

4) A speech at an anti-war rally in Chicago in 2002??!! Adler. Daniels. Are you kidding me? Are you two tools fucking kidding me?! Where did you go to journalism school? Sesame Street?

Your Say

Wow, and I thought Obama being awarded the Nobel was pathetic. These clowns will probable recieve a Pulitzer for this pile of dung masquerading as journalism.

"a refreshing humanitarian turn for the world's great hyperpower".

First of all, BBHO (Before Barrack Hussein Obama) I believe we did spend a hell of alot of $$$ on very needy areas of the world.

Secondly, we've been replaced as the world's great hyperpower.

I remember the philly race speech. That was the one where he tossed Granny under the bus.

Classic. Thanks.

Now, be fair. Sesame Street did produce Kermit reporter and I think he has a bit more credibility than these two.

That race speech in Philly has made such a difference. I can't imagine how bad the race hucksterism would have been from Professor Gates or on Rush Limbaugh if we hadn't been lectured and all told we were racists.

why the eta and eta-prime are heavy. There is no way to use the anomaly to cptoume their masses.Belavin et. al. won't get it. Most conformal field theories are testable by cptoumer, not by nature, except a few which are fixed points of models which are solvable anyway.Baxter and co. won't get the prize because their work is too specialized to specific theoretical models. Special cases of the 8-vertex model (besides the Ising model) can be realized (I think helium adsorbed onto graphite is well described by the hard hexagon model). This work is not general enough yet.Anyway, any speculation that the above could win is wishful thinking on the part of theorists. People can't get the prize for great mathematical ideas alone, evenif somewhat relevant experimentally. A prizeworthy idea has to solve a crisis in the field or make a stunning experimental prediction. Perhaps Nambu and Goldstone probably won't get it for chiral symmetry breaking because Feza Guersey, who is the third person responsible for the idea (he invented the sigma model) is no longer living.Someone said that the dark energy discover is not yet well established because the type 1a supernova candles can't be calculated precisely theoretically. This was true some years ago,but I thought they were now better understood (a stellar astrophysicist would know better). There is also other data, found by completely different means which confirms dark energy, as I understand it. Perhaps it won't get the Nobel this year, but this work seems prizeworthy.
