Republicans Flip Out Over Nobel

>Has Obama’s peace prize set off a war at home? Conservatives are lining up to blast the prize: Bill Kristol compares Obama to Gorbachev, writing “Let’s hope …that, beginning in 2012, Obama will have lots of free time to spend hobnobbing with Gorbachev on the international celebrity circuit.” Erik Erickson at Powerline said, “I did not realize the Nobel Peace Prize had an affirmative action quota for it.” And Rush Limbaugh said, “They love a weakened, neutered U.S. and this is their way of promoting that concept.” The DNC, meanwhile, hit back hard, saying “The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists—the Taliban and Hamas this morning—in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize.”
