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.

 Frank says:

In every language, the first word after "Mama!" that every kid learns to say is "Mine!" A system that doesn't allow ownership, that doesn't allow you to say "Mine!" when you grow up, has -- to put it mildly -- a fatal design flaw. From the time Mr. Developing Nation was forced to read "The Little Red Book" in exchange for a blob of rice, till the time he figured out that waiting in line for a loaf of pumpernickel was boring as f*ck, took about three generations. ... Decades of indoctrination, manipulation, censorship and KGB excursions haven't altered this fact: People want a piece of their own little Something-or-Other, and, if they don't get it, have a tendency to initiate counterrevolution.
