Al Gore wins the Nobel (Lenin) Peace Prize

So, Al the Bore wins a Nobel (Lenin) peace prize. I couldn't help but be struck at how much the award reminds me of a profile shot I have seen of one the left's favorite people, V.I. Lenin, otherwise known by many as "Vlad". He is also known as "Lenin" the leader of the Soviet October Revolution that was paraded around for a while like a circus freak after being dead and embalmed for so many years, so that the newly formed Russian government could make some money after the Soviet Union fell. Good times. Friends of mine who have taken Russian studies in College have told me about the old Soviet joke of "who is really buried in Lenin's tomb?"

So, considering that Gore and the rest of his ilk are "socialist marxist lite" I figured, what the hell. I mean, c'mon, even the "League of Nations" (aka the United Nations) and the American left are a thinly veiled, anti-American, Anti-Semite, Anti-Republican conservative anything for that matter organization. How much you wanna bet even George Soros has his hand in that gang of thieves?

So, anyway, I was wondering why the hell someone as irrelevant and a hypocrite as Gore would win such an award and voila! all I had to do was a little research. Here is a guy that is supposedly the juice on "Blowhard Smarming". Well, that's interesting since so many professional people in the scientific world have come out against his view of "BS", including Dr Roy Spencer, Ph.D who is an expert on all things dealing with the climate and Dr. Willam Gray, a pioneer in the science of seasonal hurricane forecasts. Now, people are fond of saying that "most" scientists believe that man-made global warming is a reality, but I have yet to really find 0ut who these people are as no one can give me a definitive list of who is who. If "BS" is happening, somehow I don't think 1) it has anything to do with human activity and 2) Science does not work on concensus.

Anyway, I have a problem with someone winning a Nobel (Lenin) Prize, considering the fact that it was given to of all people, Yasser (Mohammed Abdel Rahman Abdel Raouf Arafat al-Qudwa al-Husseini ) Arafat. For some odd reason, for all the years that I would see Yasser on TV, he always reminded me of a pot-bellied pig who needed a shave really bad. He was the modern day godfather of terrorism, purportedly representing the oppressed Palestinian people, yet himself was born in Egypt, albeit to Palestinian parents. That cat was a waste of human skin.

And then there is good ole' Jimmy Carter who lost all credibility with the "sweater speech" and of course, the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. Good ole' Jimmy just didn't have the stomach to back the shah, who was corrupt, but didn't do anything to encourage an election in Iran to replace said corrupt dictator meanwhile, he is also very vocal about recent American elections. He also didn't want to offend the Iranians and send in a force big enough to put the Iranian radicals in their place and rescue the hostages. Of course we know that there would have been casualities, but still, Jimmy was too worried about his legacy. It's interesting to have lived through 2 of the most inept Presidents in History, Clinton and Carter and now to see how whackos are rewarded by more whackos over absurd behavior. Go figure. I have often wondered just how different the world would be now had Ronald Reagan won the Republican nomination and General Election in 1976.

So, I stopped by the Powerline blog to do a little reading and found the following. I had to repost this as it is good. Here is some infomation on some of the past Nobel (Lenin) Peace Prize winners. You can read the rest here

Changing the climate, one winner at a time

When did the Nobel Peace Prize go off the tracks? Today's award to Al Gore and the IPCC "for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change" fits in with a subset of cosmopolitan frauds, fakers, murderers, thieves, and no-accounts going back about twenty years:

2005 MOHAMED ELBARADEI (joint winner). He's done such a nice job with Iran.

2004 WANGARI MAATHAI. The Kenyan ecologist peacefully teaches that the AIDS virus is a biological agent deliberately created by the Man.

2002 JIMMY CARTER JR., former President of the United States of America. A true cosmopolitan, he has undermined the foreign policy of his own country and vouched for the bona fides of tyrants and murderers all over the world.

2001 UNITED NATIONS, New York, NY, USA. KOFI ANNAN, United Nations Secretary General. Among other things, they have respectively served as the vehicle for, and presided over, one of the biggest scams in history.

1994 YASSER ARAFAT (joint winner), Chairman of the Executive Committee of the PLO, President of the Palestinian National Authority. He was a cold-blooded murderer both before and after receiving the award.

1992 RIGOBERTA MENCHU TUM, Guatemala. She is the notorious Guatemalan faker and author, sort of, of I, Rigoberta Menchu.

1988 THE UNITED NATIONS PEACE-KEEPING FORCES (snicker, that's good) New York, NY, U.S.A. Notwithstanding rapes and sex abuse committed by the team in Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea and the Congo, still doing fine work all over the world.

How about some recognition for the scientists of Laputa discovered by Gulliver in the course of his travels? Is it too late to recognize them for their fine efforts to extract sunlight from cucumbers? (Thanks to reader Anthony Ragan for his contribution.)

UPDATE: Reader Michael Slade thinks we need to extend the list a bit further back in time to include Betty Williams ’76, whom he deems "deserving of a place for her remarks about killing President Bush."
