NIP Opens Prevaricator of the Year™ Nominations

WASHINGTON: Today the National Institute of Prevarication officially opened nominations for the 2009 Prevaricator of the Year™. Nominations will remain open until midnight December 31st. The official results will be announced sometime in January 2010.

Nominations are open to anyone, and you can nominate yourself if you wish. Multiple nominations for the same person (from different sources) will carry weight in determining final results. You can nominate your favorite prevaricator by leaving a comment. Just put your favorite liar of 2009 in your comment. To advance your nomination it would be helpful in describing your nominee’s contribution to the field of prevarication, citing sources where possible.

News of this award has already leaked and we have heard from many who want to be named Prevaricator of the Year™ for previous years. So we will also accept nominations for Posthumorous Prevaricator of the Year™. If you nominate someone for a Posthumorous award, be sure to include the year.

Once awards have been announced for a particular year, all decisions are final.

Editor’s Note: Results of Posthumorous awards are tabulated here:

Posthumorous awards:

1999 Al Gore for his work in creating the Internet

1998 Bill Clinton “It depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.”

1994 Jimmy Carter for achieving Korean nuclear disarmament, truce with Haiti

Note to the Carter Center: Nominations for multiple years are discouraged.

    Karl Munchausen for 2009. I can’t believe you still have this piece of trash web site up. It constantly gets worse. “Prevaricator of the Year.” That’s the pot calling the pedal black. You really must be joking.

    What about Obama and Biden for pushing the stimulus package on us? “If we don’t act now, unemployment will continue pas 8%.”

    I can’t seem to choose 1, so I really have to nominate The House, Senate, and Administration that came to power on Jan. 20 2009. The one real truth I’ve heard is “blame it on Bush”.
    Thanks, I’ve vented again.
