Obama wins 2009 Nobel Peace Prize hours before bombing the moon

Or at least that's what the cheeky comment on metafilter had to say about it.

Joking aside, this is a bit of an odd turn isn't it? As the Carpenters would say, "we've only just begun."
Asked why the prize had been awarded to Mr Obama less than a year after he took office, Nobel Committee head Thorbjoern Jagland said: "It was because we would like to support what he is trying to achieve".
So, basically, the Nobel prizes (at a sweet $1.4m a pop) have become like pro sports contracts - pay for potential.
