Obama gets the Nobel Peace Prize...for his "potential"?

A gigantic WTF to the committee who decides this award. It's well-known and prestigious; it should be given to someone who has accomplished something; President Obama shouldn't even be eligible until we can see the results of his actions in office, which we can't do yet because he's only been there for 9 months.

This is nothing against our President. But he's new. We can't see what results his actions will have, yet. There's nothing on which to base this award. Yet.

So WTF?
