Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ai~! and there's the rub.

For two successive election cycles, the USians have elected criminals and morons, have voted distinctly against their class (not that Kerry and Gore were struggling with mortgages, but did anyone total the investments and BigPharma/War/Insurance connections of Bush/Cheney/Cabinet?), and made complete fools of themselves around the world with plodding plotting plodding militarists.

Kerry and Gore, did not fight like Obama did, did not work with luck the way that Obama did, did not get trapped by 'color of the suit' and the 'swift boat' crowd, and despite the errors of McCain/Palin, could have lost in the America that we know. But didn't.

The confusion in europe, about how could these people who they had long somewhat respected, how could they be so fooled by a deplorably rich, deplorably anti-social asshole, to get them to think that he was one of them, and get the populace to vehemently support obvious evil...it will never be understood. And imagine, (in this hypothetical thinking of the Nobel committee) what perplexity would have been involved in an EU drained by the unanswerable question of "How could they have elected these bobbing head morons, even worse that what was there before." I submit, all the excess mental power of the entire EU has been saved enough energy to have deserved many Nobel points.

Perhaps the award is for just getting through the billions of dollars election rat-race with a terrorist name and color, and for not letting the Americans (in the north of Mexico America and south of Canada America) elect another complete and untenable ass.

And perhaps...and even more likely, the Nobel's are able to see into alternative universes. Perhaps they see the Palin White House (after a mysterious terrorist-caused death of McCain.) Perhaps they see her 'bomb bomb bomb'ing Iran in memory of the fallen VietBrainwashed fool whom the conservatives talked down. Perhaps they see the Health Care Bill that she pushes through, giving a GuaranteedSedativePlan to all Americans, first to those who object.

Never underestimate their intelligence, always underestimate their knowledge.
