I Think It Would Be Just Hilarious If Biden Miraclously Won...

 and Trump received the Nobel Peace Prize.  9/11/20 New York Post:

WASHINGTON — President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for a second time this week — this time for brokering a historic peace deal between Serbia and breakaway republic Kosovo.

In a Friday morning tweet, Magnus Jacobsson, a member of the Swedish Parliament, announced he was nominating the Trump administration and the two European nations for their “joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House.”

You will recall Obama won the 2009 Peace Prize after only a few months in office and according to Nobel officials it was a mistake.  9/17/15 BBC:

Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama in 2009 failed to achieve what the committee hoped it would, its ex-secretary has said.

Geir Lundestad told the AP news agency that the committee hoped the award would strengthen Mr Obama.

Instead, the decision was met with criticism in the US. Many argued he had not had any impact worthy of the award.

Mr Lundestad, writing in his memoir, Secretary of Peace, said even Mr Obama himself had been surprised.

"No Nobel Peace Prize ever elicited more attention than the 2009 prize to Barack Obama," Mr Lundestad writes.

"Even many of Obama's supporters believed that the prize was a mistake," he says. "In that sense the committee didn't achieve what it had hoped for".

Obama was an Affirmative Action Nobel Laureate, as near as I can tell.

  1. Is there anything for which he wasn't the Affirmative Action beneficiary?
    I have read that the Affirmative Action programs were intended and sold as something to benefit the poorer elements of the minority groups, but in practice, they tend to benefit the more middle-class and higher portions, as they are better able to make applications so as to receive the benefits of the programs.
