Meet the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winners!

, , , , ,

Can you win the Nobel Peace Prize multiple times? Because I enjoyed Obama winning so very much in 2009 that I want it to happen again.

Sorry, no repeat for the president.

But well-deserved congratulations do go out to Kailash Satyarthi, a children’s rights activist from India and to Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teen who was shot by the Taliban because she wanted to go to school:

The Wall Street Journal has a great write-up on the two here:

As a reminder, here’s what the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner had to say to 2009’s winner about drone attacks:

So, how’s that working out?

Malala’s prize is long overdue and there are many who thought she should have won it last year, like we did:

Although there is talk that the Nobel committee is playing politics with this year’s winners, too:

The Nobel Peace Prize committee, having disgraced itself by hastily honoring Obama, stoops to play the Indian-Pakistani, Hindu-Muslim game.

Don't care any bit who wins Nobel Peace Prize. It's the most political of the political prizes world over. A living joke being Obama himself

Finally, in other Nobel Peace prize news, Americans want President Obama to give his back:
