Putin Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

(and not by the Onion.)

"The committee insists that being nominated does not imply an endorsement on its part.

Putin's chances of winning the prize appear limited given the ongoing crisis in Ukraine."

1. He deserves this less than Obama did his!

It sounds like someone's idea of a joke.

3. I looked quickly for The Onion ... to no avail. I think "the prize" is losing its prestige...

nominating Heads of State in the process or aftermath of murdering citizens in sovereign nations.

4. Nominated does NOT mean likely to get

Apparently, there are many people who can nominate people - and there are people on the left and right who claim to have been nominated. Only getting it counts.
