One Response to “Weekly Eurozone Watch: Nobel Yields”

    I will be the obligatory right-wing idiot to put a comment about Obama’s Nobel here at the top.
    Three and a half years of anonymous peace drones blowing up ME villages that harbor America’s enemies. Not that I don’t understand he might have valid motives for it, but it does not fit on the same resume with Nobel Peace Prize.
    In both cases the prize committee seems to be trying to encourage future good behavior by rewarding it in advance. It must be growing clear that to preserve a more perfect union, Northern troops may be eventually dispatched South.
