Brutal murderers on death row or imprisoned politicians get themselves nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in order to prove their continued worth to humanity. To see how this is done, check the process for nomination, and the qualifications for nominators. Peter Schramm should nominate the Ashbrook Center--for something. He and many of his academic colleagues are qualified to do so.
A better nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize would have been this Romanian (try to ignore the frightening photo) who writes mostly in German about life under Communism. Herta Mueller snagged the Nobel Prize in Literature instead.
