    Al Gore's been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Does he deserve to win?

    I like this topic, so I'm giving it a bump!

    I voted no. I like him, and he's helped raise awareness about what we as humans are doing to the environment, but I don't think that's a reason to give a guy the peace prize.

    No, for a couple of reasons. I like what he is saying about global warming.

    First, I think he would rank behind what Bill Clinton is doing as far as philanthropic efforts. As one business magazine pointed out, he has Rupert Murdoch and Warren Buffett on board with him - that says something.

    Second, if there isn't an obvious choice - Theodore Roosevelt arranging an end to the Russo-Japanese war, for example - one purpose of the Nobel prize is to bring attention to someone or a group which is doing good work but might not get the recognition. With the movie being so widely viewed, that isn't the case with An Inconvenient Truth.

    Jeez. He's got about as much chance of winning as I do. Scratch that, he's got less of a chance of winning than I do. He's a walking, talking, farting bag of rotten catshit. What the fuck has that guy ever done except lower the level of politicial discourse in this country and make a bunch of money off of dumbasses who think he posesses insight?

    To paraphrase the West Wing, I don't think that Mark Levin is Satan, but he is the guy who runs to 7-11 at 3:45 a.m. to get Satan cigs and beer. I am ashamed that he is given a platform.
  7. How did I miss that line?
    Beyond fab. Sorkin must've had some fine 'shrooms that day.

    I added some to the general idea:

    Toby: I just figured out who you were.
    Kiefer: He's gonna say Satan.
    Toby: No, you're the guy that runs into the 7-11 to get Satan a pack of cigarettes.
  9. I forgot that Q from Star Trek:TNG played the evil pollster early on.

    If you look at the picture closely, Al Davis is telling you to use Depends.
