Considering his propaganda film has been exposed as a fraud, will he ever be called on to give back his prize money when it can no longer can withstand scrutiny?
I won't be holding my breath.
On the eve of Al Gore's expected win of the Nobel Peace Prize, a British judge said his global-warming documentary is riddled with nine glaring errors and should be accompanied by a warning about its "alarmist" and "exaggerated" claims.
The Rightwing Nuthouse sends in the clowns.
Much more reaction here.
So Al Gore is the joint winner of the Nobel Peace Prize. Admittedly, he has to share it with the United Nations’ climate change panel - but, even so, I think we need to declare an international smugness alert.Meanwhile, I detect a bit of sarcasm from Allahpundit.
The former US Vice-President has already taken over from Michael Moore as the most sanctimonious lardbutt Yank on the planet. Can you imagine what he'll be like now that the Norwegian Nobel committee has given him the prize?
More to the point, can you imagine how enormous his already massive carbon footprint will become once he starts jetting around the world bragging about his new title?
UPDATE II: We've found the most nauseatingly fawning item today about the serial fabricator. Jesus Christ himself apparently is dwarfed by comparison.
The news that Al Gore has won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize has added fuel to speculations that the political superstar and climate change icon will run again for the White House. But Gore is too big for the grubby intrigues of electioneering -- now more so than ever.If Gore gets any bigger, he'll have to let his pants out again.
It's now or never. His fans, who still brood on the election debacle of 2000, have been waiting and hoping for this day for months. "It's like waiting for Grateful Dead tickets to go on sale, back in the day," Eric Schiller, an activist with the California arm of America for Gore, one of several groups urging him to run for president, told the San Francisco Chronicle.
Funny how this superstar couldn't even win his home state in 2000.
