Now that Obama has won, the Nobel Peace Prize has officially been reduced to a crackerjack box reward. There is no way Barack Obama has achieved anything deserving of a peace prize.
Suggestions from journalists that Obama was getting the prize too early were met with the comment by Nobel Committee Chairman Thorbjoern Jagland, "We hope this can contribute a little bit to enhance what he is trying to do." What? Now, the prize is awarded for what you are trying to do?
Well, if Jimmy Carter and Al Gore can win, I guess he is deserving after all.
