Alfred (Nobel) would turn over in his grave

...if he heard about President Bush and Prime Minister Blair being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. AP story here . I thought I was hallucinating when I saw the headline.

Past winners have been surprising

Didn't Arafat win one a while back? What were they thinking at that time? He signed an agreement, nothing more.

The peace prize is more of a joke than it should be.

Re:Past winners have been surprising

Isn't the peace prize supposed to reward someone for "promoting peace"? So, they're considering rewarding someone for promoting peace through war? Very strange.

Damn my Monday-morning brain

Should have put this in my earlier post:
Couldn't we nominate these gentleman for an Ig nobel prize ?

Re:Damn my Monday-morning brain

I second that emotion.
