I was disgusted but not surprised at all to see Al Gore receive the Nobel Peace Prize. When the same award has been given to a terrorist, the worst U.S. president ever (who has done more to breed instability in the world than anyone I can think of) and a corrupt leader of the UN it doesn't shock you to see it given to a fraud like Al Gore.
It doesn't matter that a British judge of all people recently declared this about Gore's propaganda film:
"The court ruled the Guidance Notes to Teachers must make clear that:Powerline does an excellent job of giving examples of just some of the recent recipients of this meaningless award:
* The film is a political work and promotes only one side of the argument.
* If teachers present the film without making this plain they may be in breach of section 406 of the Education Act 1996 and guilty of political indoctrination.
* Eleven inaccuracies have to be specifically drawn to the attention of school children."
