Obama's Nobel > Letters

Web Letter

How long is the gentrified left, the left of magazine editors, journalists, academics and even of union leaders going to live on hope? You business-suited, cocktail and hors d'oeuvres champions of the dispossessed middle and working classes, who urged voting for Barack Obama on the basis of hope, are still writing about hope: what our president can do from this point on, if he undergoes a radical transformation--the political equivalent of a sex change; for he surely needs hormones patently missing.

"Does he deserve the Nobel Peace Prize?" you ask. I ask, how can BHO be considered for any peace prize? The man has allowed his generals to use high technology that has killed innocent people. Collateral damage, it is now called. In Vietnam, it was "Sorry about that!" It's still homicide.
