Patterico's Pontifications

Calling All Professors: Patterico Needs to Be Nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:45 pm



Do you know any “professors of social sciences, history, philosophy, law and theology” with a conservative bent and a sense of humor?

If so, I need to speak with them — so they can nominate me for a Nobel Peace Prize. Those are the people who qualify to make a nomination.

I mentioned this a while back in connection with the Tookie Williams thing. I even hit up a blogger who is a law professor but he took the process too seriously. Then I hit up another blogger who is a professor. He agreed in principle, but never followed through and then became a leftist blogger and a little bit of an asshole.

So I’m still searching.

I think I’d be a great candidate. I may get subtracted points for not having killed anyone — like Arafat or Tookie did — but I am all kinds of hopeful and in the last two weeks I have done many services for humanity.

Any ideas?

  1. Best of Luck! You certainly have more experience and cred than the current recipient! Hey, I’m from Chitcago, do I get to vote twice?

    J. Raymond Wright (e8d0ca)

  2. Just keep grasping at straws. Gather enough of them and I’m sure you’ll be able to build a fine strawman.
    Meanwhile, I nominate you for the Pullet Surprise. Your giblets are showing.

    Larry Reilly (45c8f2)

  3. Send Mike Adams over at Townhall an email. You might enjoy some of his stuff. He’s a criminology professor at UNC-Wilmington and is in the process of suing his University and some individual feminist professors and administrators for discrimination.

  4. Larry – Did you skip happy hour tonight? That was a coherent comment!

    daleyrocks (718861)

  5. Patterico – SEK could help you out.

    JD (ad5f4d)

  6. I don’t think he qualifies, does he?

    Patterico (64318f)

  7. Hey, there’s some guy called Amused as Hell who has about 20 comments in moderation calling us racist for mocking Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize.

    Should I release them?

    Patterico (64318f)

  8. As I recall, Amused as Hell was anything but…

    Dana (863a65)

  9. I think it’s my fault he’s in moderation. Every other one was caught in the spam filter so I put him in moderation to figure out why.

    Also, you might try Law Prof. William A. Jacobson.

    DRJ (7fbae6)

  10. Amused is a sick perverted disgusting twisted b*stard.

    I did not click through to the qualifications thingie, I just saw the social science aspect of it.

    JD (3086d2)

  11. Eugene Volokh and Ann Althouse come to mind as Professors of Law.

    I think I should get a nomination as well, I keep the peace in my household every day.

    Patterico, as an Officer of the Court are you also a “peace officer”? That might get you some points.

    kimsch (2ce939)

  12. I think Amused is someone who has been here before under a different name. Same act, different name.

    daleyrocks (718861)

  13. Amused, in case you did not catch it previously, was the one that equated “plain old sex” to the drugging and assraping of a 13 year old.

    JD (3086d2)

  14. If Limbaugh gets nominated every year, why not Patterico?

    daleyrocks (718861)

  15. It would look good on the masthead – Nobel prize nominated blogger……

    daleyrocks (718861)

  16. Hey, c’mon Larry. Can’t we have a little fun at the President’s expense?

    I mean, you had eight years to do the same and you seem well intent on extending your joy for a few more years.

    But, let me be clear: President Obama deserved this honor from five Norwegian Nobel judges for his fabulosity. That can’t be debated.

    Why aren’t you out in the streets celebrating his enormous win rather than counting how many strawmen we can construct?

    Because, you know, we’re pretty good at that. And the celebrations need to start.

    Time management can be such a hassle.

    Ag80 (d1363b)

  17. Patterico – If you wanted some practice, I think I can get you nominated for the Mr. Walleye Minnesota prize without the aid of a professor. Just sayin’.

    daleyrocks (718861)

  18. Ya know, in this day and age, Patterico should get a Prom King nomination first. Then go for No Bell (in the belfry) piece prize. Ya know?

    John Hitchcock (3fd153)

  19. I would nominate you but then they will say you haven’t done much to deserve it. So… :)

    The Emperor who feels helpless. (1b037c)

  20. Patterico doesn’t deserve the Nobel Peace Prize because he’s done nothing about the fire ants in my front yard. And my wife is pretty pissed.

    Just saying.

    Ag80 (d1363b)

  21. I think I’d be a great candidate.

    Switch off any common sense in your brain and fall for the notion that a liberal orientation makes a person somehow very beautiful, generous and humane and you just may qualify.

    I imagine most of the slugs on the Nobel Peace Prize Committee act, think and live like a combination of an Al Gore, Al Sharpton, Bill/Hillary Clinton, Hugo Chavez, Michael Moore, John Kerry/Joe Biden (except with European accents). IOW, a profile of a flake, fool, fraud and, in general, a limousine liberal.

    Mark (411533)

  22. Here is Eugene Volokh’s post on how Gov. Richardson was nominated for FOUR Nobel Peace Prizes and how he [Volokh} can nominate YOU for a Nobel Peace Prize….

    kimsch (2ce939)

  23. Conservative professor…isn’t that an oxymoron?

    How about Instapundit or somebody from FIRE? Or look in the organization for conservative academics. I can’t remember the name.

    Patricia (c95a48)

  24. […] over at Patterico’s, the man himself is begging for a professor, any professor, to nominate him for a Nobel prize.  […]

    Gazzer’s Gabfest » Free Nobel prize with every four gallons… (b98ad6)

  25. Professor Stanley Unwin will speak out loud and clear on your behalf.

    Gazzer (22ecdc)

  26. I would like to volunteer to be the next nominee after Patterico.

    JD (df4ec8)

  27. Then I hit up another blogger who is a professor. He agreed in principle, but never followed through and then became a leftist blogger and a little bit of an asshole.

    I guess that couldn’t be Charles Johnson. What has happened to him ?

    Mike K (2cf494)

  28. Wow, Obama Derangement Fever lasts more than a day? Who knew?!

    Amused As Hell (66858c)

  29. I nominate Tim Maguire. He was Time’s “Man of the Year” a couple of years ago.

    Ag80 (d1363b)

  30. AAH said:

    Wow, Obama Derangement Fever lasts more than a day? Who knew?!

    Probably about as long as Bush Derangement Syndrome. Maybe four years shorter.

    Ag80 (d1363b)

  31. Wow, Obama Derangement Fever lasts more than a day? Who knew?!

    You are a racist.

    Patterico (64318f)

  32. Tom, no? He is smart and nice.

    happyfeet (6b707a)

  33. Patterico – The correct form is RACIST !!!!!!!

    JD (f2a921)

  34. Tim, Tom, what’s the difference between friends?

    Ag80 (d1363b)

  35. Obama Derangement Fever

    Obviously code.

    Dana (863a65)

  36. Yes. He’s also very mysterious. No idea what he does but he sure does know from financial thingies. I couldn’t follow him very well during all that TARP business I remember.

    happyfeet (6b707a)

  37. happyfeet:

    Yes, mysterious. Maybe Goldstein would be a better choice. I haven’t looked, is he posting again? I’ve always liked him.

    Ag80 (d1363b)

  38. Stephen Bainbridge or Victor Davis Hanson.

    Brother Bradley J. Fikes, C.O.R. (0ea407)

  39. Mr. Goldstein comes and goes… but he’s always a good choice I think. I miss when something like this Nobel farce would happen and I could click over to his site and get his take on things. When he’s gone I have to think for myself way more than I’m comfortable with.

    happyfeet (6b707a)

  40. Yes, mysterious. Maybe Goldstein would be a better choice. I haven’t looked, is he posting again? I’ve always liked him.

    Patrick Goldstein is indeed posting, at the L.A. Times, and a right prick he is, too.

    Patterico (64318f)

  41. Comment by Patterico — 10/9/2009 @ 10:03 pm

    Right? Or Left? I don’t read newspaper blogsites so I don’t know.

    John Hitchcock (3fd153)

  42. One thing I like about Patrick Goldstein, though: he works for a living.

    And he hasn’t told me to fuck myself in the past month, that I am aware.

    Still a prick though.

    Patterico (64318f)

  43. Patterico,

    Contact Eugene Volokh, he’s in your area too!

    kimsch (2ce939)

  44. Isn’t that anatomically impossible? Is there a doctor in the house?

    John Hitchcock (3fd153)

  45. “Isn’t that anatomically impossible?”

    John – Get with the program. Under the magic of ObamaCare, suddenly the impossible will become possible!

    daleyrocks (718861)

  46. I was actually talking about Jeff, not Patrick.

    Nevermind, I get it. Sorry to bring it up.

    Ag80 (d1363b)

  47. I’m an adjunct instructor (non-tenure, part time) in political science at a Southern California community college.

    Fritz (5a310d)

  48. I wonder if you could get Glenn Reynolds to do it.

    Steven Den Beste (99cfa1)

  49. A Nobel Peace Prize? Why would you want to join a club that’s filled to the brim with assholes?

    C’mon man, you’re not Andrew Sullivan!

    Apogee (e2dc9b)

  50. Contact Eugene Volokh, he’s in your area too!

    Click every link in the post.

    Patterico (64318f)

  51. I guess that couldn’t be Charles Johnson. What has happened to him ?

    I always thought there was something a bit off about Charles Johnson, which is why I never became a regular reader of his blog. Anyone who can switch ideologies on a dime like he has done is inherently untrustworthy.

    Mike LaRoche (445f08)

  52. Patterico, I believe you can get a nomination from Professor Irwin Corey. As “The World’s Foremost Authority,” he is a master of all the social sciences, history, philosophy, law and theology–and he does have a sense of humor.

    Official Internet Data Office (4514e0)

  53. I don’t know if Johnson switched ideologies all that much – his main thrust rightward was in response to terrorism – in most other subjects, he was all over the place. But I don’t remember him being so intolerant of dissenting opinions on his blog in the past, but I stopped reading him a few years ago because so many of his regulars were really nutbaggy.

    Dmac (5ddc52)

    Whereas Patterico through his professional and private activities:

    works to foster civil peace in a violent urban setting . . .
    defends the powerless against the privileged and empowered . . .
    exposes the witting or unwitting untruths disseminated throughout the land . . .
    and seeks world peace unfettered by submission to tyranny

    I hereby nominate him for the Nobel Peace Prize

    Golden Eagle (4e9369)

  55. Barack Obama’s dirty socialist Associated Press patronizes our little country to no end with this sloppy blowjob today…

    At a time when some had begun to question how long America’s pre-eminence in science and diplomacy could last, nine of the 11 nominees who won or shared this year’s five prizes handed out so far are American.

    On Monday, the economics prize will be announced, and Americans are the favorites.

    The scientists were recognized for work that led to breakthroughs in cancer therapies and antibiotics, and brought the world digital photography and high-speed Internet. Obama won for his mission to rid the world of nuclear arms and to bridge the divide with the Muslim world.

    When did we ever decide we wanted to bridge the divide with “the Muslim world?” Let them build a goddamn bridge if they want cause we don’t want to be where they are that’s for damn sure. Even drooling retards that watch CNN know that.

    happyfeet (6b707a)

  56. The Legal Insurrection blog springs to mind.

    Audacity (2fd5ad)

  57. You should contact Mark Levin – he submitted the Rush nomination. Plus, you could teach him the proper pronunciation of Patterico.

    AD - RtR/OS! (877de6)

  58. I don’t think he qualifies, does he?

    He does not . . . but check back in December, then maybe he will.

    SEK (9e7eee)

  59. Hi SEK good luck I came back cause I should be more clearer that what you are seeing in that article above is the dirty socialist Associated Press getting its nationalism (!) on and being very very dirty socialistically careful to speak of that tawdry whatnot the little pezzydent man got out of the dirty socialist scandi gumball machine as AMERICA’S prize. Which it is not.

    You’ll note the dirty stupid scandies don’t even track who wins their little thingy by country.

    The Nobel Foundation keeps no official tally of citizenships since laureates often have more than one.

    Don’t be fooled. At the end of the day it’s the little president man what gets to go home and rub his little award thingy all over naughty bits, not America. And certainly not you or me.

    happyfeet (6b707a)

  60. oh. all over *his* naughty bits I mean. His woman too but only if he feels like sharing and I bet he’ll make her work for it.

    happyfeet (6b707a)

  61. God Bless Obama
    apologies to Irving Berlin

    “While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
    Let us swear allegiance to a man that’s free,
    Let us all be grateful for a prez so fair,
    As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. ”

    God bless Obama and,
    His Nobel prize
    Stand beside him, and guide him
    With the help of some Norwegian guys
    For achievements, in the future
    We applaud him, his wife, too
    God bless Oba-a-ma, For what he’ll do

    God bless Oba-a-ma, For what he’ll do

    trentk269 (0481e9)

  62. My friends who are facing work slowdowns and job losses (some of who voted for the jackass in the White House) are pretty upset that they worry about a paycheck at all while King Obama is awarded gold medallions.

    Uncle Dan (e4735c)

  63. So the Obamessiah really *did* get awarded a Nobel he had done nothing to earn win a Nobel?

    I had hoped it was a bad dream. Still having difficulty believing it.

    Brother Bradley J. Fikes, C.O.R. (0ea407)

  64. Believe it! I wouldn’t mind to million+ bucks but I refuse to take the lobotomy to get the award.

    I think that the Nobel Committee wanted to go ahead and get President Obama his before his health care plan killed anyone.

    The realistic Dana (474dfc)

  66. Our soon-to-be-enNobelled host wrote:

    Certainly! Always good for a laugh.

    The amused as heck Dana (474dfc)

  67. Why would we nominate you for a Nobel prize?

    1. You are not a bleeding heart liberal
    2. You don’t hate America being a world power
    3. You have been doing this for more than 10 days
    4. You don’t hate Bush with every fiber of your being

    You just aren’t qualified.

    AYFS (56f733)

  68. My first thought upon hearing the Nobama Nobel news was that I wasn’t awake yet and had missed the joke.

    My second thought was to flood the committee with ridiculous nominations.

    My third thought was really to wonder who in the hell nominated him in February. Or was it earlier. I really really really want to see that nomination package and see who it was that wrote that nomination and when.

    Vivian Louise (e35449)

  69. Well, I’m also an adjunct Poli. Sci. prof, but if that isn’t good enough there is another class of nominators:

    directors of peace research institutes

    I could found and become the director of the….

    Obama Peace Institute
    Our Motto: Pacis per Lentus (Peace through Inaction)

    Our research would be dedicated to the study of how just sitting around on your ass, thinking peaceful thoughts, and occasionally giving voice to them, leads to global contentment. This could give rise to a wide range of scholarly studies including:

    I) Stoning People: Peace through Cannabis

    II) Siestas & Snuggies: Warmly Nap Your Way To Peace

    III) The Monsters of Peace Tour: A Proposal to send Obama, Gore and Carter on a speaking tour where peace is brought about by mass suicides caused by a 7 hour long Power Point presentation.

    Rich Horton (2fdc60)

  70. That motto is priceless!!!
