Kore wa nan desu ka!?
I followed the (very un-smartphone-friendly) link, expecting to come back and reassure all of you that a Nobel nomination is fairly worthless, since there are tons of those every year, and the nomination process/criteria are kind of a joke.
Then I saw that he actually WON the damn thing.
I agree with the consensus of the members of this thread so far. This is pretty much uncool. I like Obama, I think he is the smartest president we have had in my lifetime, and I really like his communication style, and his enthusiastic advocacy for Science. I voted for him, knocked on doors for him, made calls for him, and donated money to his campaign at several points.
But a F*ing Nobel Peace Prize before he's served a year in office? To that I say simply: W.T.F!
Uncool, European prize-giver dudes. Un-freakin-cool.
