Le Duc Tho, Jimmy Carter, Yassir Arafat - and Al Gore?

Hatched by Dafydd

As you've all no doubt seen, the whispers turned out to be correct, for a change: Algore, in conjunction with the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change, has won the Nobel "Peace" prize.

Now perhaps someone can explain to me what on earth global warming has to do with "world peace"...

Oh, wait; here we go:

The Norwegian Nobel Committee said global warming, "may induce large-scale migration and lead to greater competition for the earth's resources. Such changes will place particularly heavy burdens on the world's most vulnerable countries. There may be increased danger of violent conflicts and wars, within and between states."

Well! Who can argue with that?

Drudge has already linked to speculation that this will propel Algore into the presidential race, a possibility that Friend Lee and I were kicking around recently:

All of Gore's body language and every answer he has given to questions about running have been to discourage the idea that he would become a candidate. But for whatever reason, he has declined to make a definitive statement taking himself out of the running.

Only he knows the reason for that. Is it just to play with the press and the political community and then revel in the absurdity of all the speculation or is it because he actually believes there might be a set of events that would make is possible for him to run and win?

I assume that if Gore does decide to run, his entire campaign will more or less revolve around implementing some draconian, Luddite shutdown of industry in order to appease the Globaloney gods. Will that, combined with his status as the angriest dog in the world, be enough to knock Hillary off her pedestal of clay?

Rantin' Al    Hillary Bugeyed

"Rantin'" Al vs. "Hell-to-Pay" Hill -- the main event!

I have long believed that Hillary Clinton's only political asset is the "aura of inevitability" that surrounds her like a foggy, opalescent soap bubble; a serious campaign kafuffle could puncture it. Within the soap bubble, an old and familiar dust-devil still swirls around Sen. Clinton (D-Carpetbag, 95%), like the cloud constantly following around Pig Pen in Peanuts: a curious Clintonian cacophany of coincidence, inside of which weird things just... happen.

  • A thousand dollars of aimless investment miraculously turns into $100,000 worth of cattle futures;
  • Billing records vanish, then just as mysteriously reappear after the statute of limitations has run;
  • The Attorney General of the United States abruptly cannot bear to appoint an independent counsel to investigate even the most well-founded allegations of gunpowder, treason, and plot;
  • Documents disappear from the National Archives and are destroyed, and the miscreant -- former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger -- not only gets off with a slap on the well-padded wrist, he ends up advising Hillary on national-security issues. Son of a gun! Wonder how that just happened to... happen?

None of these incidents has any real cause, and certainly nobody is to blame; they're just -- amazing coincidences. Nobody in the elite media would dream of questioning the First Lady or the senator (now) from the great state of New York; and like Mary Poppins, she never explains anything.

But this is possible only because of the magic bubbles that others have always lent her, hiding the cacophany of coincidence: First, President Bill prevented those prying eyes, for his own reasons, by coarse and vulgar threats. Then she was shielded by being the senior junior senator from New York, with all the political power that carries.

And now, the aura of her inevitable presidency -- created by the press, the Democratic primary voters, and even the other Democratic candidates -- shields her from questions she shies from answering and arguments she shrinks from debating, even during a so-called "candidates' debate."

But now, if Mr. Inconvenient Truth decides to ride his Oscar, Emmy, and Nobel steed into the Democratic primary (campaign slogan: "Re-elect Al Gore!"), how long before his rusty sword lances that boil of inevitability? There is real bad blood between the Clintons (especially Hillary) and the Gores (especially Tipper -- mee-ow!); I think the latter believe that all the money, political muscle, and attention lavished upon the former played a major role in the latter winding up unemployed and overweight in 2001. All the king's Carvilles and all the king's Begalas were so busy getting Hillary the Roman toga she was promised, in exchange for not divorcing Bill, that they were unavailable to help push Vice President Gore over the top.

I believe there is at least a 50% chance that the Democratic race for the nomination is about to go from Clintonian coronation to globaloney Gore-gasm in sixty seconds. If Rantin' Al Gore decides to throw his head into the ring, then all bets are off.

And who knows? I might even pull an incredible victory out of a prediction I had long since written off as failed. And that would make it all worthwhile.

The Nobel Peace Prize has become a parody of itself.
From honoring President Teddy Roosevelt, for brokering peace between Japan and Russia, to today, where practiicing terrorists and toadies for tyrants and con artists promoting hysteria, the prize has become tarnished beyond recognition.

When contemplating Al Gore and the gang that he fronts for, I always have to go back to an interview conducted with Tommy Lee Jones, Gore's former Harvard roommate. When asked about Gore, Tommy Lee graciously offered that Gore was very good at Pac-man.
Gores real accomplishments are like that, thin and irrelevant. His first real notoriety came as a Senator when he negotiated with Democrat leaders and Bob Dole, the Senate Republican Leader for TV "face time" to determine if he would vote yes or no on the first Iraq war. Bob dole outbid the Dems and Gore voted yes. Then as Vice President to Clinton, Gore "reinvented government" a program designed to shield from public view questionable programs and in the process make Gore look like a management genius. Now we are treated to Gore as a front man for money-grubbing power-seeking U.N. and Euopean politicians posing as the saviour of the world from bad weather. He has a horse to ride toward the Presidency. Pac-man will just have to wait.

List of exemplary peace prize winners.

I don't think Hillary is worried. I think Al should worry. Do you remember Ron Brown?

Fat Man:

It's true that an unusually large number of people connected to Bill Clinton have died in strange ways, but that's not because the Clintons had anything to do with their deaths. I believe it's just that Bill Clinton was connected with a lot of people whose lifestyle makes such deaths more likely.

There is not a shred of evidence that Ron Brown's death was anything other than an accident, nor that Vince Foster's was anything but a suicide, nor that either Clinton ordered the jail guards not to give Jim McDougal medical attention. These conspiracy theories are the Republican equivalent of the Truthers.

But there is plenty of evidence that Bill Clinton associated with the local mafia in Hot Springs, Arkansas; that Hillary orchestrated the firing and false prosecution of Billy Dale; and that both Clintons knowingly accepted money through cutouts from the People's Republic of China, and in exchange gave the PRC a number of military and foreign-policy coups they demanded... that is, that the president and first lady were literally bribed by Red China.

Please, let's stick to charges for which there is strong evidence and veer away from loony-toons accusations that make us sound like Robert Fisk!

I figured there was about a 50-50 chance you were joking; but you wrote it with such a straight face that others might interpret it as serious, too!

I have to keep on top of stuff like that: Even though you were just joking, the 834 commenters who might follow would not be...

By the way, where did you get such stunning pictures of Saint Hillary and Messiah Gore. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case I would double that at least. There is something about the Saint Hillary one that takes me back to high school and Shakespeare, you know, "Fair is foul, and foul is fair. Hover through the fog and filthy air."

By the way, where did you get such stunning pictures of Saint Hillary and Messiah Gore?

The old-fashioned way: I went to Google, clicked Images, typed in the name... and then spent about an hour or more looking through scores of pages of images until I found ones I liked.

In other words, a liberal use of eye grease and elbow wash.
