This Year's Nobel Prize is brought to you by Halliburton

It's sad when you get breaking news from The Onion, but apparently, Bush and Tony Blair were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year. Not a typo. I swear. At a staggering loss for words, I defer to The Onion's sage "What do You Think?":

"Man, this must've been a pretty shitty year for peacemakers."

"Well, they did go to war when the entire rest of the world was opposed, so I suppose they deserve it. Wait, that came out wrong."

"Nominated by the grateful Iraqi people, no doubt."

"If they win, they would join the esteemed ranks of Henry Kissinger and Yasser Arafat."

"What, were the Powerpuff Girls too fictional or something?"

"It's about time. I'm sick of them always giving the Peace Prize to all those fucking pacifists."
