It looks as though Edward Snowden has also been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Obama won in 2009. Wouldn't it be funny if Snowden won it this year?

The Nobel committee is pretty weird. It's getting to where they skip over people who genuinely devote a life to humanitarian causes and go for whoever embarrasses their target du jour in the US the best.

I'm glad Snowden exposed what he did, but it isn't really on a par with saving doomed babies in China or something.

[Coincidentally, the year Obama won it for the epic act of getting elected while not being George Bush... one nominee that lost was Jim Garrow of Operation Pink Pagoda... who had been saving doomed babies in China.]

I think Obama won for what people had hoped he would accomplish.
I still think it remains to be seen what impact Snowden has had on humanity. His nomination is premature IMO.

I'm sorta assuming they wouldnt have handed it to Barry had they known what his actions would be.

Maybe I'm giving too much credit to them though... anyone that'd hand out a nobel prize based on what they assume you're going to do instead of what you've actually done would probably be shocked to find the replica handbag they bought from the nice chinese site isn't a real Coach purse.
