Nobel Logic

Sima Samar: women's rights activist in repressive, war-torn Afghanistan. No Nobel.

Dr. Denis Mukwege: founder of Panzi Hospital in Bukavu and champion of Congolese women and girls who are victims of gang rape and brutal sexual violence. No Nobel.

Handicap International and Cluster Munition Coalition: a coalition aimed at cleaning up cluster bombs and land mines around the world. No Nobel.

Hu Jia: a human rights activist and an outspoken critic of the Chinese government,currently serving a three-and-a-half-year prison term for "inciting subversion of state power." No Nobel.

Wei Jingsheng: another a human rights activist who spent 17 years in Chinese prisons for urging reforms of China's communist totalitarian regime. No Nobel.

Barack Obama: novice American politician best known as the multinational abortion industry's favorite patron. Nobel Peace Prize.

The logic of this can only be summarized thusly: "I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together. Goo goo ga joob."
