Carter finally wins the Nobel Peace Prize, and with this presentation, any hopes of Bill Clinton EVER shutting up on international affairs completely and permanently disappear.
The Wall Street Journal (subscription only) reports that in awarding the prize to Carter, the committee said:
“It should be interpreted as a criticism of the line that the current administration has taken,” said Gunnar Berge, chairman of the Nobel committee. “It’s a kick in the leg to all that follow the same line as the U.S.,” he added.
I think it is interesting that neither the Washington Post or the New York Times picked up this line. Are they covering up just how degenerate the committee is?
If they really wanted to kick this administration, they would have manufactured a reason to give it to Clinton (Ireland, maybe). Also, as the Instapundit noted, let’s remember the company Carter now keeps.
Greg Hlatky of A Dog’s Life fame says it best:
TOTAL BANKRUPTCY… Jimmy Carter – international Mary Worth, white-bread version of Jesse Jackson, whose every foreign policy effort came to utter grief, who opens his mouth only to say something foolish – has won the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize.
Ibk! Gaaack! Spew!
