Support Is Mounting on the Right for Trump to Win the Nobel Peace Prize
Mother Jones
...

The rally in Washington Township, Michigan came on the heels of Friday’s historic meeting between the leaders of North and South Korea, where the two presidents vowed to work to end the Korean War and denuclearize the region. Trump claimed that the South Korean president gave the US “tremendous credit” for this foreign policy achievement, and as he further discussed the Korean summit, the crowd started a boisterous chant calling for Trump to be awarded the Nobel peace prize.

I want President Trump to win the Nobel Peace Prize because I want everyone to understand that it never meant shit.

He already won the Moscow Piss Prize for Watersportsgate. That's enough.

If somehow the North Korea situation is fixed in a meaningful and lasting way, I'd say he deserves at least a share of it. It's still premature to count those chickens. There's a hopeful sign, but there had been hopeful signs in the past that turned out to be false hope.

Could little Kim possibly care about such things? I know it sounds a bit naive, but maybe he wants a Nobel Prize (and even if he doesn't really deserve one, it would be a fair price to pay for denuclearization).

The Wiki reference to the Obama prize:
The 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to United States President Barack Obama for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples".[1] The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced the award on October 9, 2009, citing Obama's promotion of nuclear nonproliferation[2] and a "new climate" in international relations fostered by Obama, especially in reaching out to the Muslim world.[3][4]
and because he was black ... but I digress.

If the Norkians get rid of their nukes and that peninsula calms down, I submit that he was instrumental in that effort and that he is more deserving of the prize than the Kenyan Usurper.

Because he was not George.

An award not without precedent, as Al Gore got his for the same reason.

Kissinger got his for negotiating peace in VN. Really. You could look it up. :coolspecs:

Well if you're still thinking in terms of someone "deserving" it, I nominate Dennis Rodham.

How do you spell his name again? :notsure:

Motss: What do you think about lining the President up for the Peace Prize?
Brean: Our job's over come election day.
Motss: Yeah, but c'mon...
Brean: What, just for the symmetry of the thing? [Motss nods] Well, if Kissinger can win the Peace Prize, I wouldn't be surprised if I woke up and found I'd won the Preakness.
Motss: Yeah, but our guy did bring peace.
Brean: There was never a war.
Motss: All the greater accomplishment.

the gig "Mo" is gathering steam:
SEOUL, South Korea — Several months ago, South Koreans considered President Trump as dangerous as North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, as the two traded threats of nuclear annihilation.

Now, commentators and others in Seoul think Mr. Trump deserves a Nobel Prize for helping start the unexpected peace process unfolding on the divided Korean Peninsula. On Monday, South Korea’s president, Moon Jae-in, said he felt the same.

Mr. Moon’s endorsement of a Nobel for Mr. Trump, who has faced one ethical scandal after another at home, came as the South Korean leader presided over a meeting of his senior presidential staff on Monday. During the meeting, Mr. Moon received a telegram from Lee Hee-ho, a former first lady of South Korea, congratulating him for a successful summit meeting with Mr. Kim on Friday and wishing him a Nobel Peace Prize.

It’s really President Trump who should receive it; we can just take peace,” Mr. Moon was quoted by his office as saying.

The failing nobel committee has refused my nomination. What a disgrace folks. Can you say rigged? This guy in the front, he knows what I'm talking about. I finally brought an end to a war thats been going on for what, a thousand years, can't get nominated. Sad.

(extremely obscure reference)

Ok, seriously--Nobel Prize being bullshit or not, is something unprecedented going on here? I recall a list of similar promising developments a mile long in the past. Not that it can't lead to good things, I'm just questioning whether anything really new is going on yet.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Nobel prize in literature 2018 cancelled after sexual assault scandal
Teh Gruniad
Riven by infighting and resignations following allegations of sexual misconduct, financial malpractice and repeated leaks, the Swedish Academy has said no Nobel prize for literature will be awarded this year.

For the first time since 1949, the secretive jury that hands out the world’s most prestigious literary prize will not unveil a winner this autumn, instead revealing two laureates in 2019, it announced on Friday.

...
Emphasis added.

Prediction: The Nobel Prize for Literature is gone for good.

Next up: Peace. :)
