I don't think Al Gore deserved one either

What the eff has Obama done which deserves the most prestigious prize there is for promoting world peace? Granted, in time he might actually end the war in Iraq and maybe even get NATO out of Afghanistan. In time he may even spread enough goodwill in the Islamic world to lower the number of fanatics willing to blow themselves up to eradicate the Infidel.

The official citation reads "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples." By the end of his term, he will probably have done this.

But not yet.

This is an even bigger WTF than giving a Peace Prize to that stuffed shirt Big Al whose claim to fame was scaring the bejeezus out of the world using incomplete data and offering no real solutions to the bogeyman he created.

Compare his non-record to the massive lifetime accomplishments of last year's winner, Martti Ahtisaari. (follow the link, be amazed at the difference)

Edit add - fixed the broken link
