Jimmy Carter Blames Obama Nobel Prize On Racism
Recent photo of Jimmy Carter suggests the former president may have lost a step or two.

PLAINS, Ga. (CAP) - Former President Jimmy Carter says the unexpected awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to President Barack Obama may be the direct result of lingering racism on the part of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

"It took me more than 20 years of diplomatic work after my failed presidency to get my Nobel Prize," noted Carter. "President Obama is only 10 months into his failed presidency, so there's no other logical explanation."

Asked who the Norwegian Nobel Committee might be exhibiting their racial prejudice against, Carter said he "hadn't worked that part out yet."

"But let's just say that if Israel is behind this, I wouldn't be surprised," he added.

Carter is hardly the only observer to express concern over the committee's choice of Obama for the prestigious award. U2 lead singer Bono was reportedly "shocked" at being passed over in favor of Obama, and immediately suspended his band's current tour to return to Africa, where he'll work "even harder" on debt relief and reducing the spread of AIDS.

"Blast that feckin' Obama - I've done more for starving kids in Africa than he's ever done, even if he was born there," said Bono, who admitted he probably shouldn't have given up his charity work to devote himself to rock and roll debauchery.

"And the debauchery hasn't even worked out for him, as I feckin' predicted," said U2 guitarist The Edge. "Every time he asks some Molly if she wants to come back after the show and see his 'giant claw,' he turns into a feartie-cat and runs back to his wife."

On the right, many have pointed to Norway's prevalent left-leaning views as the reason the committee picked Obama.

"A bunch of socialists over there, no doubt about that," said Fox News commentator Glenn Beck. "I say if Norway loves Obama so much, they ought to marry him."

Then he took that comment back, noting such a marriage would be "unnatural and fly in the face of God and country." Then he gesticulated wildly, and cried.

Still, many say Obama is more than deserving of the honor, and the awards keep pouring in. For instance, the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences announced this week that Obama would be this year's recipient of the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, for "creative producers whose bodies of work reflect a consistently high quality of motion picture production."

"I told them I'd never, you know, made a movie," said Obama. "They said that's okay, they figured I'd get around to it eventually.

"And when I do, it will be good," he said, flashing his winning presidential smile.
