Peace Prize: Is it hot in here or is Gore crazy?

As expected, Al “do as I say, not as I do” Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize for his fight against climate change.

Is this the first time anybody has won a “peace prize” for fighting something?

Now people want to know if this exposure will cause Al to run for president:

Kenneth Sherrill, a political scientist at Hunter College in New York said Gore probably enjoys being a public person more than an elected official.

“He seems happier and liberated in the years since his loss in 2000. Perhaps winning the Nobel and being viewed as a prophet in his own time will be sufficient,” says Sherrill.

That should be “a profit in his own time.” So much for truthful editors.

Notice how skillfully and quietly “global warming” has morphed into “climate change.” This has been a climatological Grecian Formula — the change was so gradual anybody absent a modicum of common sense didn’t notice.

Warmer? Man-made climate change! Another ice age? Man-made climate change! No matter what happens now, Al’s positioned himself as a the guru of how to go about fixing it, all while wearing a bank teller’s visor and a wide grin.

Even if the problem doesn’t exist in the form that Gore claims it does, by traipsing around the world in private jets and having energy hogging mansions, there will be man-made climate change soon enough — thanks to Al Gore. Talk about creating your own cause! This could be the first hoax in history that ends with the hoax becoming reality by design. It’s conceptually brilliant, and for that my hat’s off to Al Gore — in an Andy Kaufmann sort of way.

Meanwhile, our brave soldiers who are overseas plugging terrorists by the bushel are doing more to deserve a “peace prize” than anything Gore, who does nothing but bitch about how much carbon comes from their tank exhaust, will ever do for real peace.

After winning the Nobel Prize, Gore said that “climate change is not a political issue, but a moral issue.”

Whenever somebody who was a career politician tells me something isn’t a political issue, there’s only one thing it could be: a political issue.

In closing, pardon me for being wary of a man who considers a 2-degree rise in temperature to be a “moral issue,” but killing babies in the womb is a “choice.”
