Mario Vargas Llosa has won the Nobel Prize for Literature

Mario Vargas Llosa, a self-described "classical liberal", has won the Nobel Prize for literature
("Classical liberal" is what the rest of the world calls libertarians.) 

I don't know how they allowed this to happen.  I mean, the man can WRITE ! 
Heads will roll.

He started off a commie, and then came partially to his senses.

Considering how far to the left most Latin American artists/writers are, he's practically a Nazi or a heretic.

They gave the Nobel Peace Prize to some guy in a Chinese prison. All I can say is, "It's about time." If I were the Nobel Committee, I wouldn't set the dinner table for him.
