Patterico's Pontifications


No Nobel Peace Prize Nomination Yet

Filed under: Crime,General,Morons,Nobel Peace Prize — Patterico @ 6:35 am

I am disappointed that no reader has yet volunteered to nominate me for the Nobel Peace Prize. What’s the holdup? I haven’t committed enough murders?

Let’s get to work, people. If you are 1) a judge, a legislator, or a social science, history, philosophy, law, or theology professor, and 2) incensed by the nomination of murderer Tookie Williams and by the prize awarded to murderer Yasser Arafat, make your statement now. Leave me a comment or e-mail me at patterico AT patterico DOT com.

UPDATE: There is a possibility in the works, but a vomiting cat has delayed the discussion. No kidding.

UPDATE x2: The cat vomit is cleaned up (it wasn’t my cat) and things are looking positive. No guarantees, but I have a promising lead.

UPDATE x3: Eugene Volokh opines that a professor should not nominate someone he or she thinks is undeserving, because making light of the seriousness of the nomination process does not justify dishonesty to the Committee. He has an interesting point; however, his concerns could easily be addressed by simply being completely honest with the Committee that this is a parody nomination.


Nominate Patterico for a Nobel Peace Prize

If you are a professor, judge, or legislator, then I want to hear from you. I want you to nominate Patterico for a Nobel Peace Prize.

I’m dead serious about this.
