Ever since Arafat got one, the Nobel Peace Prize has lost a good deal of its lustre.

Don’t forget Kissinger. It’s always been a bit of a crapshoot.

They need to limit these things to just science.

I guess every Nobel Prize nominee needs to be given a questionnaire to find out what they believe about everything relative to human rights because these things are not known before the fact. I would favor that. Just a simple question: Do you think anybody should be discriminated against, imprisoned or killed for their race, ethnicity, religion, gender or sexual orientation? For anyone promoting peace the answer should be obvious.

Wouldn’t keep out the liars. The Prize is a million bucks.

Just to keep things real on the liberal side, I didn’t think Obama deserved one either. I’m not sure how they select the winner but it’s been pretty flawed for many years.

Neither did he and he gave the money to charity.
