Indeed. This morning when I saw the news my mind did a little WTF backflip. Thank you, Nobel Foundation, for expressing your relief that America has a chill president for once. I'm sure there could have been no better candidate for the prize - you know, people who have actually accomplished things, rather than simply being elected based on promises and drive to accomplish things.
Don't get me wrong, I love my Obama and I voted for him and I'll vote for him again, but this is more than a little absurd. Its like they just decided to go ahead and give him one since he's going to go down in history anyway for being the first black president and for the energy and vitality of his campaign. Seems like a cop out to me.
