    Sheehan claims she's Nobel Peace Prize finalist

    http://www.kvue.com/news/local/stori....2ce2644a.html

    " The president's most vocal critic against the war in Iraq was in the Capitol City Wednesday night.
    KVUE Online Video

    KVUE's Shelton Green reports

    Cindy Sheehan was at BookPeople on Lamar & 6th Street signing autographs for her new book entitled "Peace Mom".

    " Sheehan also announced at the signing that she's a finalist for a Nobel Peace Prize."

    A Nobel Prize has really lost all meaning and significance if she wins

    Don't forget the list of people who can validly nominate someone for a Nobel Prize (in this case Peace) is so large one shouldn't really even look at the list of nominees. All that matters is who wins.

    Here's a link on who can nominate someone for a Nobel Peace Prize:

    Yeah, I noticed.. I really have no clue what he did (or what others who won the Literature Nobel did) that was so special, but so be it. Have you read any of his works?

    Lol...pretty sure Sheehan could find a Sociology prof or two to nominate her.

    No, I haven't read a lot from him... the latest guys I did now, Coetzee, Glass, Saramago. As a matter of fact Saramago is an incredibly good read, you should try out "Essay on blindness" or "The gospel according to Jesus Christ" very beautiful books.

    No one thought he would ever get it, not because he is not an amazing writer but because he is a known supporter of communism, and Nobel prize has never been quite procommunist.

    The Nobel Peace Prize has become totally "politicized," these days and has nothing to do with anyone bringing real peace to the world.
