    The Nobel Prize Prize is like the Oscars: a meaningless award granted by a self-appointed club of elitists.

    Worse, actually. At least Henry Kissinger never won an Oscar.

    I don't know how that works, can any yahoo be nominated for any reason? I would not place any bets on Donald., though for winning. :)

    It all went off the rails in my mind when the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded jointly to Yasser Arafat in 1994.

    Anyone can be nominated, typically nominations are not announced, but sometimes the crazier ones like this get leaked.

    Donald's probably on the committee and nominated himself.

    When Kissinger and Obama both have Nobel Peace Prizes, you have to wonder what exactly is meant by "peace".

    You would think that a nomination would have to include documentation to support the nomination. I'd love to read about the great things The Donald has done in the name of Peace. Is that like grabbing a big peace of the pie? :rolleyes:

    Well, it's not like the days where MLK, Mother Teresa or George Marshall won it. In recent years, the Peace Prize has been used by the Nobel Committee as sort of a carrot for resolving conflicts and pushing changes they see as important, not for actual accomplishments. For example, remember when Arafat, Peres, and Rabin won it in 1994?

    Well, we still have conflict in the Middle East. The Peace Prize has become very politicized today, and somewhat of a joke.
