Russian President Vladimir Putin nominated for Nobel Peace Prize – NY Daily News

Invade Ukraine and get nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

It was all in a day’s work for Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, whose name popped up Wednesday among the record 278 put forward for the prestigious prize.

Putin, who is also known for his persecution of gay Russians, was reportedly nominated for helping defuse last year’s crisis in Syria.

If he wins, will it be presented in the proper packaging, that is, a Cracker-Jacks box?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I quite honestly did Laugh Out Loud – those Nobel people have become so totally predictable – and a sad parody of themselves, as well, of course.

    …Putin, whose name popped up Wednesday among the record 278 put forward for the prestigious prize.

    Oh, my, yes, what a “prestigious” award it has become – how “exclusive”, and all…

    Also on the list is Chelsea Manning, a 25-year-old Army private who was known as Bradley Manning when he leaked secrets about U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Nice list – no doubt all the very best, most “peace-loving” folks on the planet.

    Putin, who is also known for his persecution of gay Russians, was reportedly nominated for helping defuse last year’s crisis in Syria.

    Absolutely – never mind that, had not his hand-puppet Assad gassed his own people to kick things off, there wouldn’t have been a “crisis in Syria” to begin with – at least not at that time, anyway.

    The irony, she is thick – and yet totally lost (or at least ignored) for some folks…

  2. If he wins, he’ll probably drive right up to Oslo in a tank to accept the award in person. Along with a couple hundred thousand of his “fans” accompanying him.
