The Nobel Peace Prize? Really?

Are you fucking serious? What the hell has he done to deserve this? Actually, it's kind of fitting. They gave one to Jimmy Carter and Yasser Arafat, why not Obama.
There will be an outcry from those on the right who will say that Obama's nomination, made two weeks into his Presidency, is impossible to justify but I think such an outcry will sound like right-wing whining. The better response is simply to allow those on the left to explain what he did in his first two weeks as President that merited such recognition.

I was surprised too. I don’t think President Obama has done anything to deserve it. But if he uses this award as a call to action to help reduce nuclear weapons throughout the world or bring peace to the Middle East it could be a good thing.

I agree that Yasser Arafat was a bad choice for the Nobel Peace Prize but President Carter helped broker peace between Israel and Egypt. It’s one of the most important accomplishments toward peace in the 20th Century.
