Makes him even more like Jimmy Carter now, doesn't it..?

You have to be kidding..... The Nobel Peace Prize..... TO Obama.... what on earth for....... can't everyone see... he is the ANTI _CHRIST!

Well, Renee, if Julia is right and Obama is simply Jimmy Carter II, we needn't worry too much, he'll make a total cock-up of being an anti-Christ!

The nominating process ended on Feb 1. That means Obama was in office only a few weeks and someone nominated him!

Yes, Dom, I picked that one up, too. Let us hope that the proper hacks, there are a few left, get their teeth into that story and find out who it was.

As a matter of interest, those qualified to nominate candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize are:

1. Members of national assemblies and governments of states;
2. Members of international courts;
3. University rectors; professors of social sciences, history, philosophy, law and theology; directors of peace research institutes and foreign policy institutes;
4. Persons who have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize;
5. Board members of organizations who have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize;
6. Active and former members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee; (proposals by members of the Committee to be submitted no later than at the first meeting of the Committee after February 1) and
7. Former advisers appointed by the Norwegian Nobel Institute.

Not exactly an exclusive bunch: especially under item 1 (the world's shysters) and item 3 which includes most of the faculty of any jumped up tech college you care to mention. The only thing that amazes me about this whole crock of faeces is that there were only 205 nominees this year.

Quite so, 'Bongers', and given that everyone and his uncle seems to have been on the list what really hurts is that no-one nominated me!

I am curious about #4 and wonder if perhaps Jimmy Carter put him up, but on reconsideration, given his level of competence he would either have spelled the name wrong or sent it to Father Xmas in Lapland!

Doesn't anyone realize the Nobel is "Consolation Prize #2"

Think about it. A US President takes Air Force One out for a globally warming joyride to press for his hometown hosting the Olympics - and fails.

And so the Nobel Committee considers it's past winners (and categories - obviously not fit for the Science category) so...

It's a theory, 'JK', but I wouldn't bet the deeds of the house on it!
