Bush and Blair for Nobel Peace Prize? Say it isn't so!Silverback

Just got an e-mail from a friend who said he found it somewhere online. The mind reels . . . On the other hand, Henry Kissinger got one, so why not?
Satire is dead. And thank God it didn't live to see this day.
I suppose you'd rather they give it to Arafat.... What?purplepaul

As far as I know, anyone can be nominated for the Nobel Peace Price. Basically, you fill out a form and send it in. (It's not that simple, but it's simple enough.) Naturally, every year there are some wacko entries. This year I am nominating Mario Cipollini.

Then again, why not Bush and Blair? The long term effects of what was done in Iraq may be more and longer lasting peace. Just because people were shooting and stuff was blowing up doesn't mean it wasn't good for peace. You can laugh at me for saying that, but wasn't WWII good for peace? I'm not saying they should get a Nobel, but look at it with a little historical perspective.
