The Nobel Committee is looking more like a group of standup comics and less like an august group of peace promoters. Looking back at their past picks for Peace Prizes, it becomes clear that a few cogs are missing in the Nobel machine. King Obama was selected to receive the prize based on what he said he *wanted* to do. He was in office only a few months when he was awarded the prize and many people across the globe had their jaws hit the floor.

Awarding a Peace Prize to someone who speaks of their good wishes is childish. Reading this article showed me that ThorbjA rn Jagland and his cohorts are about as clear as mud in their thought and purpose.
