Update:

Anyone can be nominated. Winning is a different matter.

Update 2:

Warren v......yes. The point is the neocons keep making fools of themselves and keep trying to slander the Nobel Peace Prize by including the turd, Hitler.

Update 3:

Warren v......no, that's not what I'm saying. Hitler was ejected pronto. He was a turd when he was nominated by another turd.

    Hitler was nominated by the Swedish Member of Parliament Erik Brandt in January 1939. What many people don't know, and obviously even his contemporaries didn't understand, was that the whole nomination was nothing but a joke.

    Brandt was a Social Democrat, a staunch anti-Nazi and one of the founders of a Swedish organization called Universal Anti-Fascist Coalition in 1938. What made him perform this practical joke was his astonishment over the naïve and gullible praise of the British Prime Minister Chamberlain ("Peace in Our Time") who in his opinion put the whole of Europe in danger by yielding ground to Hitler in Munich in September 1938 by accepting the incorporation of Bohemia in the Third Reich.

    12 Swedish members of parliament praised Chamberlain to the skies and nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1938 (he didn't get it), which made the astonished Brandt respond by nominating Hitler a few months later.

    Brandt seems to have been both shocked and surprised when he realized that most people, including the media, didn't get his irony. Many people even wrote him telegrams and letters to express their thanks and appreciation for his nominating Hitler. Even the German leadership seemed happy and content about the nomination (when he actually intended to make them feel offended by the irony), so Brandt quickly turned tail and withdrew it just a few days later.

    In the end, no one was awarded the Peace Prize that year.

    "All Nobel Peace Prize nominations from 1901 to 1951 have been released in a database, and showed Adolf Hitler to be nominated in 1939. The nomination was retracted in February of the same year. Other infamous nominees include Joseph Stalin and Benito Mussolini."

    Hitler was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1939, you know about the same time he was invading Poland.

    Is there a point to your question?

    Aha! So you are pointing out that Hitler, 6 years into his reign was nominated for the NPP but as time went on people saw who he really was and he did not win. Um, interesting!

    I think we have beaten the Hitler horse to death. The issue is over the last few years the Nobel Peace prize has been marginalized to become nearly meaningless because of who was awarded the “Honor.” When characters like Al Gore, Jimmy Carter and Yasser Arafat win the Nobel Peace prize it marginalizes past recipients like Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King who made meaningful contributions and sacrifices in their life times.

    The Nobel Peace price has become a means for Marxists to give their Marxist brethren Kudos on a Global scale.

    In a sense it is quite an accomplishment for a devout Marxist to get elected as President of the United States but I am not sure it rises to the level of a Nobel Prize.
