As of today, Assange’s name is being floated around as a potential candidate for next year’s Nobel peace prize. Now, if the Nobel people went for that one, they would definitely have stepped off the edge of reality, considering last year’s weird selection of BO. If this self-styled, egotistical activist could be shown helping humanity in terms of lifting them out of despair and poverty, I might be all for giving him a prize of sorts. However, since all he has done to date is divide the world, satisfy his own selfish interests, and compromise many people’s lives in the interests of getting back at the US, I think I’ll pass. If those aren’t reasons enough, think about the source of this silly story: the Kremlin, guys!
