Some Dumb Guy Suggests David Ray Griffin for Nobel Peace Prize

What the heck, after giving it to Le Duc Tho, Rigoberta Menchu, and Yassir Arafat, it's not like it would bring dishonor on the prize. But this did crack me up a bit:

It looks to me as though we'll need a senator or congressperson to endorse the submission, along with documentary support for Ray Grifffin's qualifications.


Jeez, these guys can't read, can they? He links to the Qualified Nominations page, which rather clearly states that the following are also qualified to nominate candidates:

University rectors; professors of social sciences, history, philosophy, law and theology; directors of peace research institutes and foreign policy institutes;


In other words, Griffin, who's a professor of theology, could nominate himself.

Another winner from bg.

Hey, maybe "Scholar" Jerry Leaphart should buckle down and read NIST's papers and presentations on designing to prevent progressive collapse.

Nah, no billable hours in that.

I actually think he should win the prize. After Arafat won I was convinced they pick only charlatans (Arafat and Menchu, as you've mentioned) for the grand award.

If DRG didnt nominate himself, he could just get one of the apple dumpling gang over at scholars to do it.

I know why they are doing it though. Once nominated, expect to find in every new CTer video a quote or segment from "Nobel Peace Prize nominee David Ray Griffin".

So this is that 'Nobel Prize Nominee' quack doctor that examined Terry Shiavo and said she was gonna get up any day now?

Nobel Prize in Peace Awarded by the Norwegian Nobel Committee to "the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity among nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses".

so how does griffin meet those qualifications?

If he wins I bet he would bake a wonderful fruitcake!

Le Duc Tho, Rigoberta Menchu, and Yassir Arafat...

Mr. Griffin would be in great company, along with the likes of "Coffee Kofi" Annan and Jimmah Carter.

Liars, thieves, and criminals. What a bunch.

Hey, it could be worse. They could be suggesting that Judy Wood be nominated for a Nobel Prize in Physics.

Or the US as leading democratic and free country of the world.

It truly is....

Sarcasm aside, it is.

Nice try, boy.

I dont think they give a rats ass about him winning. I think they just want to be able to increase the "legitimacy" of everything they quote by him, by saying it is a quote/opinion of a "Nobel Peace Prize NOMINEE".
