Another Sick Joke: Tony Blair Recieves Prestigious Liberty Medal!

Tom Lehrer famously said "Political satire became obsolete when Henry Kissinger was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize". Well last night political satire was drugged, raped and murdered in an alley, when Tony Blair - "Middle East Peace Envoy" (which is a joke in itself) - was announced as the winner of a prestigious liberty medal and a $100,000 prize by the National Constitution Centre in the US. This is the man who turned Britain into an Orwellian surveillance state and illegally and deceitfully invaded Iraq!

You seriously cannot make this stuff up - first Obama gets a Peace Prize, then Monsanto is named company of the year and now this!

What's next, an environment award for BP? ... Oh wait, that already happened last year!

Damn it, that was the most ludicrous thing I could come up with and it still happened.

Ok ... Errm ... How about awarding the Pope a child protection award?

*Checks Google to make sure that hasn't happened!*

Seriously though, Judging by the past winners of the Liberty Medal, it's not really surprising Blair would win. These awards are a joke.
