More On Obama's Gold Medal For Peace, With RedState.com Reaction Shotzz!

And "Erick Erickson," some sort of retarded cousin of Robbie Robertson and #1 journalist on top Internet destination RedState.com is justa little caught off guard because he "did not realize the Nobel Peace Prize had an affirmative action quota for it."
