Bush and Blair Nominated Twice for Nobel Peace Prize. That would have been the real joke.

Everyone seems to be joking about Obama winning the Nobel Peace prize.  Even SNL made it the opening skit last night.  Well the argument is that he was nominated after being in office for only 11 days.  In fact the voting did not occur until just recently and there were over 300 nominees and anyone can be nominated for the peace prize even George Bush who was nominated twice as shown below.  If he had won that would have been the real joke.
