The dubious award-winners hall of fame

  1. They really gave the NPP to Arafat and Kissinger, i'd forgotten? Someone once said that Kissinger winning was the death of satire.'

    • Yes, He got it, Kissinger that is.That is why the NPP is such a colossal waste of time and is now considered a farce. They have managed to hamstring Obama, whatever he does now will be under much scrutiny.

  2. This article is as dubious as some of the awards it lists.

Comparing Obama's international politics to the author's taste in music or their preference of tv actors? I would have expected a more intelligent argument from Macleans.

  4. I cannot for the life of me understand why "Two and a Half Men" is so popular – it is so predictable, NOT funny; but in my humble opinion John Cryer is probably the best on the show (doesn't say much). Probably the worst sit-com I've ever watched!

  5. Denzel Washington winning an Oscar for Training Day over Russel Crowe in A Beautiful Mind was another doozy.
