Do not adjust your computer monitor. No need to go in for an eye exam. It's true:
UK Prime Minister Tony Blair and US President George W. Bush have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by a Norwegian politician.
Harald Tom Nevsik, a member of the right-wing Party for Progress, said that he had nominated the two world leaders for fighting terrorism and promoting world peace.
Conservatives have long viewed the Nobel Peace Prize
as something of a joke. They have scoffed at Arafat, Carter, and Gore when each took a turn at the Swedish podium. So, perhaps Nevsik simply figured, what's good for the goose...
What are Bush's chances at taking this year's prize? Well, in this topsy-turvy world, I suppose anything is possible.

Our New Approach to Comments
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss
– we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
