Ah, you have to love the predictability of Pravda FOX News Channel. When Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize, you KNOW they started scrambling to find ways to diminish him. And Friday, they found their mouthpiece in the conservative NY Sun's Seth Gitell.

Gitell thinks that the Nobel committee awarded the Peace Prize to the wrong American, arguing that it should have gone to...wait for it...Gen. David Petraeus.

So the general presiding over a horrendous civil war of our own making, responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and the displacement of millions more, not to mention the deaths of more than 3,800 American troops should be given the Peace Prize???

I don't think that even Orwell could have imagined FOX News.

Can you help us out?
