They know how to pick 'em: Last year, the euroweenies who award the Nobel Peace Prize decided to give it to former U.S. President Jimmy Carter -- not for any work he's done, but as an effort to stick it to President George W. Bush.
This year, they've given it to a nutjob who believes that AIDS was created by evil scientists to kill black people.
Kenyan ecologist Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, today reiterated her claim that the AIDS virus was a deliberately created biological agent.
"Some say that AIDS came from the monkeys, and I doubt that because we have been living with monkeys (since) time immemorial, others say it was a curse from God, but I say it cannot be that.
"Us black people are dying more than any other people in this planet," Ms Maathai told a press conference in Nairobi a day after winning the prize for her work in human rights and reversing deforestation across Africa.
"It's true that there are some people who create agents to wipe out other people. If there were no such people, we could have not have invaded Iraq," she said.
"We invaded Iraq because we believed that Saddam Hussein had made, or was in the process of creating agents of biological warfare," said Ms Maathai.
"In fact it (the HIV virus) is created by a scientist for biological warfare," she added.
It just adds to the long list of "awards" that no one in their right mind would ever want to accept. Would you want your name in a list that included Yasser Arafat and Wangari Maathai?
The fact that Teddy Roosevelt is also on that list no longer outweighs that crazies and terrorists on the list.
