Nobel Foundation makes a strange political statement.

I find it hard to believe that the Nobel Foundation has made Al Gore and his bunch of sidekicks Nobel Prize winners. Read here.

Although I suppose it should be considered that someone making Arafat and Nelson Mandela peace prize winners can hardly be expected to make the right decisions all the time.

Just like everything else it's down to politics. Hopefully the other prizes are actually awarded on merit.

Hmm yes. You should read what Cranmer says. His link is on my blog.

I feel the same way but have done since they put terrorists on the list. It does seem that the Peace prize is more of apolitical tool than something to be respected. In some cases, and this is the most blatant, it is clearly so political that it makes it a mockery.

I don't find it hard at all. I find it very, very easy.

Well they couldn't give him one of the Science prizes and Doris had already beaten him to the literature prize.

A Nobel You Can Fool Most of the People Some of the Time Prize would have been more appropriate.
