Ok, I was as pleased as the next guy to see Barack Obama win the US election, but he's only been in the job 9 months, (and he'd only been in the job 2 weeks when nominations closed).
What has he done to earn a Nobel Peace Prize?

Or have the judging panel created a new prize category, The Nobel Prize For Not Being George W Bush?

I can't read it any other way, and as a result I see this as a rather mean spirited thing. Obama's reaction on the other hand was characteristically gracious (and politically astute).

But it is fun watching the wingnuts foam at the mouth over this.

Rachel Maddow makes a pretty good case in favour of Obama winning the prize

In observing the interactions of other people, I have noticed that "not being a d1ck" seems to be very difficult for people in todays societies.
