When I wrote this post earlier today, I originally tried to work Glenn Beck and the tea party crowd into it. My idea was that Beck would argue that the nutcases screaming in the streets this summer were the ones who really deserved the Nobel Prize.
But that seemed over the top, too forced and absurd to be really funny.
“The Nobel peace prize should be turned down by Barack Obama and should be given to the tea party goers and the 9/12 project,” Beck said on his syndicated radio show today. “Because of the tea party goers and the 912 project people that stood in his way and stopped him from accomplishing from the things that he thought, ‘Please I’m the messiah, I’ll be able to accomplish that.'”
