And Yet Another Award For The "Words" Man!

I am still on the road, but I have a short piece to illustrate that a LOT of people are a bit surprised that the Nobel Peace Prize Committee is now handing out the Prize for just saying what one wants to do instead of actually DOING something. Except, thankfully, or at least, right this minute, the following piece from Andy Borowitz, an Obama supporter, I might add, is humor. Or would be, if it wasn't so plausible these days.

Huh - come to think of it, Obama getting the Peace Prize for reading a teleprompter WOULD be humorous, not Prize-worthy, except there were people actually DOING work for peace in the world(including the esteemed Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton). Ahem. But enough from me, here is the post:
Obama Named Country Music Entertainer Of The Year: Surprise Selection Shocks Nashville

NASHVILLE (The Borowitz Report) - President Barack Obama stunned the country music world today by picking up its highest honor, Country Music Entertainer of the Year.

Mr. Obama was chosen unanimously, according to the Country Music Association, beating out such favorite as Carrie Underwood and Toby Keith.

In Nashville, country music insiders were shocked by Mr. Obama's selection, given that he has only been in office for eight months and during that time has yet to record a single country song.

But Mr. Obama was gracious in receiving the honor, saying that he was "honored and humbled" by the award before excusing himself to accept this year's Heisman Trophy.

Oh, I just wonder what award today will bring for the Talker in Chief!
