Gore Lies, Wins the Nobel Prize

We hate to be as indiscreet as the title to this posting, but recent events call for frank speech.

On Wednesday a British judge ruled that Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth could be shown in Britain's secondary schools only if students were first warned that the film contained "serious scientific inaccuracies, political propaganda and sentimental mush."

Today the Nobel Prize Committee announced that Gore would share the Nobel Peace Prize with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The Nobel Peace Prize is now officially the equivalent of a championship awarded by World Wrestling Entertainment. And the British High Court is officially the last bastion of common sense in Europe, save maybe the brain of Nicholas Sarkozy.

We would make comparison to the charge that Dubya lied about WMD, but it's simply too obvious to bother.

Let's remind ourselves that the same body the nominated Mussolini, Stalin and Hitler for the same award. I'd say Algore is in good company.

What, exactly, does telling people about global warming have to do with peace?
