This is what happens when you're drinking whiskey at 3 in the morning because your girlfriend is traveling across country and won't be back for a couple of months. You wind up discovering that the nomination of George W. Bush and Tony Blair for the Nobel Peace Prize isn't the craziest thing you've ever heard of.

Other nominees are varied and include: Pope John Paul II; the European Union to mark its expansion to include former East bloc states; the Salvation Army; former Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler; former Czech president Vaclav Havel; former Yugoslav president Slobodan Milosevic; and Chinese dissidents.

Suddenly the nomination of Bush and Blair doesn't seem so crazy by comparison, and I can guarantee you that those are words I never thought I would type.
