Based on some past winners (Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Kofi Annan, Yasser Arafat), we always knew the Nobel Peace Prize was politically motivated, now it has become a joke.
President Barack Obama won this year's. He as been in office less than nine months and was only President for 12 days before the Nobel nomination deadline last February.
His career consists of community organizing, a convention speech and campaigning for President while a less than one term senator.
Here's what the NobilePrizes.com says for Barack Obama (2009): for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.
Maybe the committee felt that a person (a black person albeit) who got to the presidency by talking about hope and change (creating the "American Socialist Democratic Republic") and apologizing again and again for being American, deserved it.
