I've noticed a flurry of comments about Rush Limbaugh nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. I thought it was a joke, so I did not follow up. Imagine my horror when I read the following on James Dobson's Citizenlink (yes - I read it every day - it is the best way to keep track of the bastard.)
Limbaugh Nominated for Peace Prize
Earlier this week, former Vice President Al Gore was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Now Rush Limbaugh is up for the honor.
A popular conservative talk show host, Limbaugh is the choice of Landmark Legal Foundation, which announced its nomination Thursday.
"Rush Limbaugh is the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in the world," according to Landmark Legal President Mark Levin.
"Every day he gives voice to values of democratic governance, individual opportunity and the just, equal application of the rule of law," Levin said. "It is fitting that the Nobel Committee recognize the power of these ideals to build a truly peaceful world for future generations."
Should the Nobel Committee pick Limbauigh for the honor, he'd win a cool $10 million in Norwegian kroner.
Should Limbaugh win the honor? Christ, I'll run naked down Wall Street if this were to happen. This is ludicrous. That fact that it was publicized by James Dobson sickens me, but is in character for the totally out of touch wanna be pastor.
I dug (well digged actually) deeper and found this excellent post on the subject by Mel Seesholtz, Ph.D. at the Atlantic Free Press.
That’s right. The Landmark Legal Foundation, “the premiere public interest law firm fighting for conservative principles in America,” has nominated the rotund one (who serves as an unpaid member of Landmark’s Board of Advisors) for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The post goes to shred Limbaugh, as well it should. But please people - tell me this was a joke?
