Rush Limbaugh nominated for Nobel Peace Prize, Al Gore heats up, explodes

I honestly thought this was a joke the first time I read it but no, it's true: Rush Limbaugh has been nominated for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. Landmark Legal Foundation, the leading conservative public interest law firm in the country, put him up for the honor. I'm not sure what is involved in the nomination process but this affirms my theory that adult life is just one, long, insulting extension of high school. In this case merit and substance being shit on by a beying jackass.

In his letter to the Nobel Committee, Levin writes, "Rush Limbaugh is the foremost advocate for freedom and democracy in the world today. Everyday he gives voice to the values of democratic governance, individual opportunity and the just, equal application of the rule of law - and it is fitting that the Nobel Committee recognize the power of these ideals to build a truly peaceful world for future generations."

How's Al Gore taking this one? First, a soul crushing presidential defeat to an impared failure who became the worst president in our history and, just for good measure, losing after first WINNING the popular vote. And now a miscreant hypocrite is nominated for the same Peace Prize? This completely negates whatever honor nomination might have been and even if Gore wins the whole thing is tainted.

Touche. Once again, conservatives played it perfectly.

I mean, sure, Al Gore helped bring awareness about global warming to the forefront of the dim American consciousness. This is an issue he has stressed for years and years and now, in a consensus report from top scientists, it turns out he was right all along. All of it...validated. The most destructive force humans have ever unleashed, and Al Gore was right about it before most of us knew what the hell a "greenhouse gas" was. And he's in the same category as Rush Limbaugh?

Limbaugh, the guy who had his housekeeper illegally supply him with drugs, meanwhile raling against drugs on the radio. The guy who mocks Parkinsons Disease sufferers. The guy who, on top of every other breach, admitted he had been simply "carrying water" for conservatives, essentially depraving his listeners of the very truth he claims to dispense. THAT GUY?? Really?

What will Al Gore do? Will he throw himself down an oil refinery tower? Will he perch himself on the edge of Antartica and erode into the ocean? Will the added concentration of humiliation cause him to slowly heat up and explode? We'll never hear the end of it. I have to throw my TV out and cancel my internet now. I have to move to some island in the middle of Polynesia. I...the's....I can't....for the love of.....thank God it's Friday.
