Al Gore: Triple Crown Threat?
As of mid-October 2007 has been a very good year for Albert Gore, former Vice President of the United States. And it may get even better before 2007 has ended.
Gore`s winning streak started in February when loony elitists in Hollywood bestowed an Oscar upon the Veep for a flick that still has political professionals scratching their heads in bewilderment.
Politicians experienced in all types of dirty tricks and political shenanigans wonder: How was Gore able to get An Inconvenient Truth classified as a documentary?
In truth, Gore`s masterpiece is nothing more than a political ad that lasts two hours and 31 minutes.
Yet the damn thing won an Oscar. And millions of unwashed sheep flocked to theaters all across America and voluntarily paid good money to be hoodwinked and brainwashed by liberal propaganda available in the mainstream media on a daily basis.
Act Two of Gore`s triumph over science came from Oslo Norway, on October 12.
From that beautiful city came word that the Nobel Peace Prize was being dumbed down--even further.
That is not exactly how it was announced, but it is a fair rendition given the fact that the prize was awarded to Gore and a UN Panel for their combined efforts to embarrass George W. Bush and the United States.
After honoring Yasser Arafat with 33 percent of the prize in 1994 and Jimmy Carter in 2002, one would have hoped that the folks in Oslo had reached bottom.
Apparently not, given Al Gore`s thievery of 50 percent of the award in 2007.
So, what is next for Al Gore?
Shall the humble man from Tennessee retreat to his modest abode in Nashville and live in seclusion until the next major award is thrust upon him?
After all, life is pretty sweet when you own a mansion with 20-rooms and eight baths spread out over 10,000 square feet, and when spending $30,000 a year to heat and cool said mansion is not even a slight concern.
Or, shall the former Veep continue to ignore his own "Think Green" admonishment by continuing to engage in incessant air travel, with the hideous carbon footprints that result, just to collect undeserved awards and to campaign for even more honors that defy science and discredit America?
With the end of 2007 almost upon us, it`s a safe bet that Gore is plotting a full court strategy to seize the final award in the Triple Crown.
That would be the Time Magazine "Person of the Year."
It is also a safe bet that Gore will win that as well.
Pity there is no "Hypocrite of the Year" or "Carbon Polluter of the Year" award to recognize Al Gore for the inconvenient truth that is his extravagant lifestyle.
