Okay, so what (aside from a lot of really fabulous speeches) has Obama DONE to win him the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009? Don't get me wrong, I like the guy and all that (which is more than I can say for my own President), I would have voted for him if I was Amreeki and I cried when I heard his inauguration speech too. But he's barely assumed office, he's trying (I'll grant him that) but since when was a Peace Prize awarded on the basis of pure faith that a man will deliver? In which case I deserve a Nobel Prize too for something amazing I too shall promise to bring to fruition in the next few years.
I mean, I like the guy and everything, but the Nobel Peace Prize? That's carrying this sycophantic love affair a bit too far. Seriously.
