Couric Fears Goracle Backlash

You can't make this stuff up.

Katie: Gore Warms Up Hollywood
Along with millions of other people, I was watching the Oscars last night, checking out the dresses. (Personally, I found Penelope Cruz’s the most beautiful and tasteful of the night...)

But as the throngs of celebrities greeted Al Gore as a secular saint, I wondered if this might usher in a backlash against environmentalists. It wasn’t too long ago, afterall, that environmentalists were decried as tree-huggers, and former President Bush railed against them — trying to say it was the spotted owl against logging interests and jobs in the West.

Gore has repeatedly said the environment is not a Democratic or Republican issue; it’s a moral issue. But now that Hollywood has so completely embraced the former vice president, one wonders if this issue will be associated only with liberal causes. The Oscars may give Gore's critics ammunition to reject a school of thought that’s been validated by countless scientists worldwide. Some people I know latched on to a recent Gore global warming conference that was cancelled because of a snowstorm.
It gets worse. Read on if you can take it.

Couric is stupid enough to leave the comments open. Here's a couple of samples:
Katie, get a grip, are you really this stupid?
Al is a dope. While the earth isn't flat I can't say as much for Al's head. Ask him all he did for the "earth" while he was in office. He'll lie, but the answer is NOTHING!

Traditionally, people aren't declared to be "saints" until they have been dead for awhile.

Just because Al has been brain dead for some time, shouldn't qualify him for sainthood.

Couric should let someone who knows better have more airtime. Might help her dwindling ratings.

More ridiculous media fawning here.
