OSLO - NORWAY: Some female members of the Nobel Selection committee said they had arrived at a split decision when it came to awarding the Nobel prize for Literature. A percentage of them felt that Scarah (sic) Palin was a prime contender given that she was soon to release her memoir "Going Rogue.
Committee member Annbjorg Gunnhild told reporters:
"Ve vere very pleeshed to shee that thish ladee can atually construcht a shentence vit vords in addition to shooosting bears and feesh for fude. This buke made the best-sheller leest befur it vas even published. This is a very promising sign for de vurld that American Republikans are encouraging leeteracy. Ve vanted to avard the prize to her but the men on de committee vun the hand-wrestling contest so ve had to shettle for Barak Obama over Scarah (sic) Palin".
The female members of the selection committee were very impressed with Ms. Palin's talk to the money managers in Hong Kong where she had stated :
"I'm going to call it like I see it and I will share with you candidly a view right from Main Street, Main Street USA".
Ms.Gunnhild said: "Ve found it incredible that in such a short time she vas not only seeing Russia from her living room but vas now seeing the view from Main Street USA. Vow! in such a short time she has laid out her vision and the promise of things to come - as she vill be the next (and first voman) Pressident of the US".
