        \_ I am shocked, *SHOCKED* that the NSA spies on foreign and US
           citizens and foreign governments. This Snowden guy must have
           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.
           \_ Most people seem to have been surprised by this.

11/6    Four more years!
        \_ Yay! I look forward to 4 more years of doing absolutely nothing.
           It's a much better outcome than the alternative, which is 4 years
           of regress.
           \_ Can't argue with that.

The Call So what did Obama do to get the Nobel Peace Prize? Fri, 10/09/2009 - 1:35pm US President Barack Obama was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize just 12 days into office. FP took a quick look back at what Obama did to improve world peace -- or, really, anything with foreign-policy relevance -- in those two weeks. Here's what we found: * January 21: Obama met with the ambassador to Iraq, commander in Iraq, and regional commander to receive a complete briefing on the war. He also ordered a review of the case of Ali Saleh al-Marri, a detainee held on a Naval brig in South Carolina. This time Obama speaks with Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, South African President Kgalema Motlanthe, and Prime Minister Taro Aso of Japan. The resciding of the Mexico City policy, rejection of torture, naming of the climate change envoy, and closing of Guantanamo all seem like banner moments. Hardly equal to, say, negotiating peace between the Israelis and Palestinians or being willing to give up your life to end apartheid. Of course, this just provides evidence of Obama's win as symbolic -- the importance of his calls for a nuclear free world pale in comparison to the importance of his tone and his preference for dialogue at the helm of the world's biggest superpower. Whaddya mean 12 days, by Don Bacon on Fri, 10/09/2009 - 8:28pm in only six days he had two meetings and made eight phone calls, and had time left over to sign a couple directives. I guess he didn't do anything the next six days, he was so tuckered out from all the phone calls. Heck, that's nothin, when I was a telemarketer I'd take 200 calls a day. Of course that's no way to win the Nobel, but it kept beer in the fridge.
