Convicted felon George Ryan has once again been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, joining Rush Limbaugh and an unknown number of other nominees. The category of "qualified nominators" is stunningly broad, rendering a nomination essentially meaningless. The Nobel committee will release the full nomination list in 2057.
There is no IgNobel prize for peace. That honor is only for research. No matter. Ryan's ignoble massacre of justice would not come close to meeting the humor requirement anyway.
