Definitely a WTF moment. I like Obama, and I’m rooting for him as much as the next guy… but a Nobel Peace Prize? Really?! I’m excited about the potential for what he might accomplish… but he hasn’t done anything yet!

The saddest part about this is that it gives fodder to those who claim that there is an evil Liberal conspiracy running institutions like the Nobel prize. Wacky choices like this for the Peace prize reflect badly on the prestige of the other awards.

(As a side note I don’t think Obama himself is to blame for any of this. I think he responded excellently in disavowing the prize for his own accomplishments and speaking rather of what it represents. Of course, those who dislike him will be inclined to put that down to meaningless political posturing)
