Posted on 10/07/2012 5:49:03 PM PDT by DFG
This year's Nobel prize season kicks off Monday with rumours suggesting the peace prize could go to Egypt's Maggie Gobran for helping Cairo's poor, Afghan burka opponent Sima Samar or US scholar Gene Sharp.
The first Nobel to be announced this year will be the medicine prize on Monday, when the jury in Stockholm reveals the winner or winners around 11:30 am (0930 GMT.)
Like every year, most of the speculation in the run-up to the announcements focuses on who will take home the prestigious peace and literature prizes.
Betting sites have become a popular feature of the guessing game in recent years, with gamers sometimes curiously accurate amid suspicions of leaks from within the award committees.

I saw Bill Clintons name? What in Gods namee did he do to deserve the peace prize? We are in an alternate universe.
What about Obama? Was he nominated???
“Like every year, most of the speculation in the run-up to the announcements focuses on who will take home the prestigious peace and literature prizes.”
forgot the /s?
Bill Clinton could win the Nobel Piece Prize.
Mitt Romney should get one, being that he just recently outperformed a Nobel Prize winner last week.
The Peace Prize is really the WAR PRIZE!!!!!
The people who have received it have created more war and terrorisim either directly or indirectly.
The “Peace Prize” has no credibility!!!
They’ll award them all to Obama- that’ll bring his poll nimbers back up!
The larger question is ‘which raging leftist who actually endangers peace by his or her policies will win the prize which should go to a conservative whose policies help keep it?’
Imo, 0 made the Nobel Peace Prize worth exactly, well, 0.
...and the peace prize winner is “The Arab Spring”.
“What about Obama? Was he nominated???”
Obma is a No-Balls Prize Winner!!
It became obvious several years ago that the Nobel peach prize is determined by some totally corrupt process.
Even money on the muslim brotherhood......I mean after all they need the money, so they can continue to spread peace.
Carter, Arafat, Gore, Food Stamp President, etc....suggests that the Nobel peace prize isn’t worth much more than a bucket of warm spit!
I'm sure his supporters will demand that he get another "Noble" [sic] Peace Prize - if only for all the Obamaphones he's giving away...
I’m pretty sure I’m up for a Nobel Prize in literature for my series in THE ATLANTIC about deer peeing in the woods. There’s some MFA up for his book IT’S ALL ABOUT ME BECAUSE I’M THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE AND I’M THE ONLY PERSON EVER TO FEEL THIS WAY AND THE REST OF YOU ARE CRAP ANYWAY.
They should just give it to Ubama again - - who cares? The whole thing is such a pathetic laughingstock anyway. Give it to Ubama because, well ...because he will bring total lasting peace to the Middle East, once and for all. They just know he will. That works.
Nobel Prize in physics- Obama, for discovery of a black hole in Washington...near the US Treasury.
Lemme guess...it’s Moochelle for her contributions to health and diet. sarc/off
This is exactly what I look like when I couldn’t possibly care less about something.
Sad that the IgNobel Prize now is more respectable.
.......... OBAMA !
Other great nominees:
Zero already collected his, so it must be Hillary's turn. Or maybe Code Pink's.
“I saw Bill Clintons name? What in Gods name did he do to deserve the peace prize? We are in an alternate universe.”
Clinton Global Initiative:
Also helped wage the real war on women:
“And for stopping Pakistan and India from going to war, stopping a famine in Afghanistan that likely would have killed millions, for stopping Saddam Hussein from continue to kill hundreds of thousands, and for saving millions of lives in Africa through AIDS funding, we award the peace prize to George W. Bush!”
“And for demonstrating that Preferential treatment has been pretty much a failure everywhere it’s been tried and for his groundbreaking look at the economics of knowledge and decision making, the economics prize goes to Dr. Thomas Sowell!”
“And because we are sick of giving that literature prize to authors nobody ever reads, we are giving this year’s prize to that piercer of political correctness, Tom Wolfe!”
And then I woke up...
I’m pretty sure they’re gonna give it to Obama for the Obamaphone...
The American media should receive the Nobel Prize for effectively promoting one world government by hiding Obama’s Marxism from the public and by ignoring “The Project” a.k.a. the Muslim Brotherhoods’ successful plan of infiltrating the U.S. Government.
Why not give it to Obama? they have ruined everthing it stood for giving it to him the first time.
“What about Obama?”
That’s right - it’s been three years since they gave it to him, he’s certainly due another.
That is the only reason they gave it to Obama. Just to slap George Bush in the face.
I’m bettign they will give it to obama agaqin for ‘holding up so well under pressure duiring hte presidential dwebate with mitt’
it was for his ‘relief efforts’ after haiitii- but I guess htere was no mention of Bush Sr’s name who worked tirelessly right aqlongside clinton in those relief efforts?
Suspence? @$#%$#$#@##$$$%$%% lets see, who can we find in the world who has done nothing with his or her life but has promise?
