Landmark Legal Foundation Nominates Rush Limbaugh for 2007 Nobel Peace Prize



Limbaugh called 'the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in the
world today'

LEESBURG, Va., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Landmark Legal
Foundation today nominated nationally syndicated radio talk show host Rush
Limbaugh for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
Limbaugh, whose daily radio show is heard by more than 20 million
people on more than 600 radio stations in the United States and around the
world, was nominated for the prestigious award for his "nearly two decades
of tireless efforts to promote liberty, equality and opportunity for all
humankind, regardless of race, creed, economic stratum or national origin.
These are the only real cornerstones of just and lasting peace throughout
the world," said Landmark President Mark R. Levin.
"Rush Limbaugh is the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in
the world today," explained Levin. "Everyday he gives voice to the values
of democratic governance, individual opportunity and the just, equal
application of the rule of law -- and it is fitting that the Nobel
Committee recognize the power of these ideals to build a truly peaceful
world for future generations."
The Nobel Peace Prize, which is given by a committee of the Norwegian
Storting (the Norwegian Parliament), was created by inventor Alfred Nobel
in his will in 1896 to be given to the individual or organization who
"shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations,
for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding of
peace congresses." The first Nobel Peace Prize was awarded in 1901 to Henry
Dunant and Frederic Passy.
Should Limbaugh become the 2007 Nobel Laureate for Peace, he will
receive the Nobel Peace Prize medal and a cash award of $10 million
Norwegian Kroner (approximately $1.6 million). The prize would be presented
at a ceremony in the Oslo City Hall presided over by King Harald V and
Queen Sonja of Norway on December 10, 2007, the anniversary of Alfred
Nobel's death. As the 2007 Nobel Laureate for Peace, Limbaugh would deliver
the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Lecture at that ceremony.
Founded in 1976, Landmark Legal Foundation is the leading conservative
public interest law firm in the United States. Rush Limbaugh serves as an
unpaid member of Landmark's Board of Advisors.

Professor Ole Danbolt Mjos
Chairman,
Norwegian Nobel Institute
Henrik Ibsens Gate 51
NO-0255
Oslo, Norway

Dear Dr. Mjos:
Landmark Legal Foundation herewith submits the name of Rush Limbaugh as
an unsolicited nomination for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
We are offering this nomination for Mr. Limbaugh's nearly two decades
of tireless efforts to promote liberty, equality and opportunity for all
mankind, regardless of race, creed, economic stratum or national origin. We
fervently believe that these are the only real cornerstones of just and
lasting peace throughout the world.
Rush Limbaugh is a nationally syndicated radio talk show host in the
United States and one of the most popular broadcasters in the world. His
daily radio show is heard on more than 600 radio stations in the United
States and around the world. For 18 years he has used his show to become
the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in the world today.
Everyday he gives voice to the values of democratic governance, individual
opportunity and the just, equal application of the rule of law -- and it is
fitting the Nobel Committee recognize the power of these ideals to build a
truly peaceful world for future generations.
Thank you for your thoughtful and serious consideration of this
nomination. Should you require additional information, please don't
hesitate to contact me.
Sincerely,



Mark R. Levin
President

Wow - that's a lot of Vicodin and Viagra...

This makes me wonder how many crazy nominations the Nobel Committee receives on a regular basis.

When you look at Rush they way you look at Elvis, I agree with it. Every Oxy-contin that Rush ingested was one less drug on the street. He did it for us.

raggin' on the dude bc he has a drug problem is rather arbitrary, no? and somewhat hypocritical considering the brothers were wacked out for 30 years. I've walked in those shoes, it ain't funny and that poster while sad, is true. If you haven't been strung out on heroin or another narcotic, you've got no idea what you're talking about.

I thought it was the sign of the apocolypse when Tookie Williams and Oprah were nominated, but thats just me.

The whole thing is a joke.

Anyone can nominate anyone for a Nobel Peace Prize. It will get the same consideration as all the other nominees. I think Ill nominate myself and then update my resume.

"Time's Man of the Year"
"Nobel Peace Prize Nominee"

I think youre missing the point. While yes the ABB were a walking pharmacy for a long time, they werent openly advocating harsh prison sentences for drug users in a public forum and then when it was discovered that they were dopers, were let off the hook. Its the hypocrisy of Rush that makes him the joke that he is.

Doesn't appear that the Landmark Legal Foundation meets the criteria to be able to nominate "anyone", much less Rush Limbaugh for a Nobel Prize.

Nominators

New nomination rules, effective from 2003. Compared to the old rules the list of nominators has been slightly expanded.

Any one of the following persons is entitled to submit proposals:

members of national assemblies and governments;

members of international courts of law;

university chancellors; university professors of social science, history, philosophy, law and theology;

leaders of peace research institutes and institutes of foreign affairs;

former Nobel Peace Prize laureates;

board members of organisations that have received the Nobel Peace Prize;

present and past members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee; (committee members must present their nomination at the latest at the first committee meeting after February 1);

former advisers at the Norwegian Nobel Institute.
Observing the rules given in the statutes of the Nobel Foundation, the Committee does not publish the names of candidates.

The Nobel Peace Prize may also be accorded to institutions or associations.

The nominators are strongly requested not to publish their proposals. Proposals should be sent to:

The Norwegian Nobel Committee
Henrik Ibsens gate 51
NO-0255 OSLO
Norway.

piacere - not attempting to trivialize a drug problem. Squatches post points to probems I have with Rush which is his hypocrisy (he points a lot of fingers for somebody living in a glass house).

Rush is more of a hatemonger and fearmonger than anything else, if one must use labels. Sometimes when I'd flip over to WWL to get some talk about the Saints, I'd get Rush instead. Listening to him talk for just 3 or 4 minutes is enough to realize this man is deathly afraid of a lot of things, and has found an audience of people just like him. I've never heard him say a single thing that would inspire "peace."
