I’ve been giving this whole thing about President Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize. It’s troubling to me for a variety of reasons, but primarily this:Worse; the nomination period for Nobel Prizes is from October to February. At best he’d been President **11 days** when he was nominated; at worst, he was still 5 weeks away from being elected.
Which means, in a very real sense, President Narcissist was awarded the Nobel peace Prize not for anything he actually did.
Doesn’t this make the Nobel prize some sort of a joke? Why yes; yes it does, skippy. It does indeed; sort of the Rubber Chicken of Awards. Certainly if the Nobel hadn’t attained “Ridiculousness Status” when Yasir Arafat won one, it most certainly does now.
So I did some research and I’m going to show everyone how to nominate someone for a Nobel Prize. It’s easy, it’s simple, and fun for all the family. And it’s a real resume-builder, too.

According to the Nobel Committee website, Qualified Nominators include “Members of national assemblies and governments of states.” The Constitution of the United States, **ARE** the government.
That seems to qualify to me.
Here’s a blank letter you can use to submit your nomination to the Noble Committee:
As a citizen of the United States of America, whose government is “of the people, by the people, and for the people,” I feel that I am a Qualified nominator for the Nobel Prize in ____________(Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine Literature, or the Nobel Peace Prize). I would therefore like to nominate ___________ (person).
I feel _________(person) deserves nomination for the following reasons:
Thank You for your attention in this nomination. Most Sincerely,
Your address, city, state.
(2.) Make a copy of this letter. Take it to your local Notary Pulic and notarize a copy of the submission letter.
(3.) Mail the original Letter Certified Mail to the Nobel Committee.
(4.) Select an appropriate frame, and put the notarized letter with the Certified Mail Receipt in the frame.
This will make a fine gift for that special someone for Christmas: A Nobel Prize nomination. Then Marcus Henderson Wilder will justifiably be able to claim that his books have been nominated for Nobel Prize in Literature. Think how much it would mean to your firends to have been nominated for that Nobel Peace Prize; or Literature Prize; or Chemistry Prize. What a truly great gift that would be.
Will they actually **WIN** the Nobel Prize they’ve been nominated for? Doubtful, really. I’d be extremely surprised if they do.
And, I might mention . . . we’ll also flood the Nobel committee with paperwork. Great protest strategy, eh?
Running Out to buy a suitable frame today . . .
PS: No, no — I’m quite serious here. I want to flood the Nobel committee with nominations. Let them know how we feel about this award, and how it’s become ridiculous .
