Shaking My Head in Disbelief

The President of the United States has won the Nobel Peace Prize, due, apparently, to his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” (emphasis mine)

All you have to do to win a Nobel Prize is make an effort? You have to do more than that to become an Eagle Scout.

Nobel-Prize nominations are due February 1, only a few short days after the U.S. Presidential Inauguration. He couldn’t possibly have done that much worthy of such an honor in that short a time span.

Why not wait until he has been in office a few years and then see if his accomplishments, rather than his efforts, merit this award?
