It was announced today that Wikileaks has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Yup, Norweigian lawmaker Snorre Valen nominated them for the award. It’s important to note that Valen didn’t nominate Assange personally. And I appreciate that because let’s face it, Assange can be, well, kind of a dick. I’ve watched his interviews and followed his progress. He likes sticking it to people. And if I’m honest, I like watching him do it. I believe that he did us a great service. He showed us our government in it’s meanest form. Duplicitous, obnoxious and arrogant. I never blamed him for publishing the things he did because let’s face it, if our government wasn’t doing nefarious things they’d have nothing to hide. Transparency is what keeps them honest and the gross lack of it over the past 10 years has been a crime. So I guess I’m saying, I hope they win.
