Old And Busted: Nobel Peace Prize.
The New Hotness: Confucian Peace Prize

In Vladimir style, he wakes up one morning with a prize so cool that neither Jimmy Carter, nor St. Albert of Gore, nor even the vaunted #OccupyResoluteDesk have one:

After two wars in Chechnya, one conflict in South Ossetia and two of the deadliest hostage relief operations in modern history, the former KGB officer was named on Monday as the winner of the second Confucian peace prize.
It is unclear if Putin is even aware of the award which was chosen by an obscure cultural organisation, the China International Peace Research Centre, from a field of nominees including Bill Gates, Angela Merkel, Kofi Annan, Jacob Zuma and a Tibetan Panchen Lama imposed by Beijing.
The 16-judge panel said that Putin deserved the award because his criticism of Nato’s military engagement in Libya was “outstanding in keeping world peace”, regardless of the fact that it had no bearing on the outcome of the north African conflict.

The five member Nobel Prize Committee could not be reached for comment. Sissypuss the Blog Kitty, however, has it on good authority that them Norwegians are sure-a pissed-a off, you betcha. Ole Danbolt Mjøs, Nobel Committee chair, purportedly expressed outrage:

Norway will not permit the Peace Prize brand to be diluted by this ‘Made in China’ frippery! This means war!

Putin is said to have interrupted #OccupyResoluteDesk on the links with the news:

Bow to this, Barack! I’ve got the Confucian Peace Prize. Also, no trouble getting re-elected. Ask me nicely, and I’ll offer you some advice on campaign videos. Later, sucker.

    Can he get a Chilean model with his Confucian Peace Prize?

    Most likely yes, by the dozen.

    I thought Smitty was ResoluteDesk.  Who’s ResoluteDesk, and is it a reference to a ship name or what?

    What does Vlad get with his prize?  A family combo selection from rows A, B, and C?

    Sorry, didn’t think the Resolute Desk was obsure.
    But calling BHO #OccupyResoluteDesk, I am both connecting him to the useless protesters, and remarking upon his performance as POTUS.
    Also, while not complementary, it is family-friendly, so you needn’t worry where you forward the link, as you may with SCOAMF, or whatever Ace’s term is.

    Confucian Peace Prize voters:  pay no attention to the torture rooms ol’ Vlad used to run.  “Context” counts only for American Republicans.
