OSLO, Oct. 12 — The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded today to Al Gore, the former vice president, and to the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for its work to alert the world to the threat of global warming.
The bat-shit crazy right-wing America haters can be duly expected to hit the airwaves today and denounce this one right quick. Because Al Gore? He craaazy! Just ask Charles Krauthammer! Besides, global warming is just God's way of giving us all a nice tropical vacation before the rapture. Or so my literal reading of synopses of "Left Behind" tell me.
I guess Mr. Gore will just have to take solace in his loving family, his piles of money, his Oscar, his Emmy, and now his Nobel frickin' Peace Prize.
