Neither do I

(Via Drudge)

"I don't know how I ever got a Nobel Peace Prize..." says Nobel Peace Prize laureate Betty Williams, an Irish poet.

Neither do I, especially when she makes remarks like this to a group of schoolchildren:

"Right now, I would love to kill George Bush."

She made this remark at a speech to a school in Brisbane, Australia, in the context of discussing non-violence, which she doesn't seem to support. Perhaps she believes in peace through superior firepower instead. (*AHEM*)

The spooky part is that if you made this remark here in the United States, in nearly any context, but especially in a public speech, you'd likely get a visit from the Secret Service. Instead, she got cheers. The brainwashing continues apace.

Nice to know the next generation of Australians will also be friends of the US. (*AH-AHEM*)
