Limbaugh vs. Gore for Nobel Peace Prize

Sometimes the news is so funny that all we need to do is report it to get a good laugh. This week we have had two such stories. First there was this one, and now there is the report that the Landmark Legal Foundation has nominated Rush Limbaugh for the Nobel Peace Prize. From their press release, posted here for its comic value:

Limbaugh, whose daily radio show is heard by more than 20 million people on more than 600 radio stations in the United States and around the world, was nominated for the prestigious award for his “nearly two decades of tireless efforts to promote liberty, equality and opportunity for all humankind, regardless of race, creed, economic stratum or national origin. These are the only real cornerstones of just and lasting peace throughout the world,” said Landmark President Mark R. Levin.

“Rush Limbaugh is the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in the world today,” explained Levin. “Everyday he gives voice to the values of democratic governance, individual opportunity and the just, equal application of the rule of law — and it is fitting that the Nobel Committee recognize the power of these ideals to build a truly peaceful world for future generations.”

Rush Limbaugh winning the Nobel Peace Prize and being called an “advocate for freedom and democracy?” Only on the Bizarro World. While Limbaugh might actually win the Nobel Peace Prize on the Bizarro World, his chances here on earth are poor compared to those of Al Gore, who is seen as a possible winner. The nomination by itself means little. Last year there were 190 nominees for the award, and probably none who deserved it less than Rush Limbaugh.
