Bush? Peace Prize?

I don't know why I didn't hear about this until today, or technically yesterday, but I heard that George W. Bush, the guy who got us in to all this CRAP, is supposedtly a candidate to get the Nobel Peace Prize.

I saw this on the cover of TIME Magazine.

Three letters man, W T F.

Well, I guess it sorta makes sense, since Nobel himself invented DYNAMITE. But thats exactly why he started the Peace Prize thing; he felt guilty for being responsible for something so destructive that he wanted to reward people for promoting peace.

Bush does not promote peace, as far as I can tell. Starting a war is slightly the opposite. But I do remember something from George Orwell's 1984: "War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength". But that was the antagonist's sloagan, so...we're back to wondering why the crap Bush is up for the Peace Prize.

I guess we'll never know.
