Jimmie Carter, Yasser Arafat And Al Gore

Al GoreAl Gore, has joined Jimmie Carter and Yasser Arafat as a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize:

OSLO, Norway – (AP)- [1]Former Vice President Al Gore and the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize Friday for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundations for counteracting it.

The news is not a shock

James Joyner, Outside the Beltway [2]:

This continues the trend of the Peace Prize being awarded, not for achievements in spreading peace, but to highlight the Committee’s political agenda.

Ditto James. Maybe Al can use his Nobel money to buy an exercise bike?

Addendum I: (Bit)

This despite the documented lies as found by a British Court, as we reported here yesterday. [3]

Addendum II:  (David L)

Au contare!   Not dispite Algore’s documented lies, but because of his lies.   Remember this is the Nobel committee   The committee looks to facts as a twenty-buck hooker looks to johns.
