sorry, but you don't win a Nobel PEACE prize by waging wars regardless of how "noble" the war may be.

I wonder if people who now win this award understand the impact of given this to a politician who has been roundly scientifically discredited?

Kinda puts the award in perspective...it is now more akin to the peoples choice award than anything with educational merit.

Roundly discredited where? Comic books?

Oh and by the way Tom I think your box cut off the rest of the copy for W and goes on to say ... "and failed to totally do the job whille pissing away lives and money in Iraq and loosing it's grip on Afghanistan. You might want to go back and fix that."

Glad to help.

"Failed to totally do the job???"
I believe we are still there doing the job, even though nut jobs like yourself who are too ignorant to understand the big picture and realize that we are actually doing a good thing over there, are pissing and moaning to pull out, which is what i hope your girlfriend makes you do so that you don't procreate.

It's a WAR, yes, but unfortunately there are people and organizations in the world that won't stop their incessant goal of wanting to kill us just by being asked nicely to stop.

Further more, Al Gore is the biggest piece of crap walking. "oh, look at me. I'm Al Gore, I invented the strap on dildo, oops i mean the internet and cherry pie and the oceans and sno-cones" What a joke, how do you respect a man who can't back his own "beliefs" with his actions!?

Good Day-

Perhaps if you expanded you sourses to other than the tree hugging handbook you would know the answer already...

How about Newsweek, Universtiy of Massachusetts,and ream of scientific journals that give other cuase and effect reasons for the warming trend.

Sarah, you are ruining the jocular nature of this blog. Appears your meds have worn off so as a friendly tip, Wal-Mart has generic meds at $4 a pop.

Posted by: Keith Schmitz | Oct 12, 2007 10:07:38 PM

Oh and by the way Sarah, I'd rather listen to the likes of former Iraq commander Gen Richardo Sanchez who calls the surge in Iraq a "failure" rather some potty mouthed woman with anger management problems.

man bear pig is real

Posted by: tloc | Oct 13, 2007 11:42:58 AM

Keith, former means "not currently". How about we ask some trops actually in Iraq if the surge is working. And global warming is real, because I invented the internet.

I would agree that you don't get a Nobel PEACE prize by waging wars. Should you get a Nobel PEACE prize for encouraging people to ride the bus? Or should you get one for bringing down a ruthless dictator who regularly sent death squads through the streets, built special facilities to rape and mutilate women, and intentionally starved his people while spending billions on his own lavish mansions?

No matter how you feel about global warming, it has nothing to do with peace. Al Gore's environmental efforts, regardless of their merits, do not warrant a peace prize. If somebody feels that Al Gore is saving the world, fine; give him the International Yippee Skip Prize for Environmentalism. His efforts contribute nothing to the promotion of peace. Shall we give Steven Spielberg the Nobel prize in Chemistry because he makes good movies? Or give Scarlett Johansson the Nobel Prize in Economics because she's, like, totally hot? George W. Bush's efforts are at least relevant.

Obviously the Nobel committee wanted to once again express their ultra-liberal views. They can do that; you and I don't have to pay for it, so as far as I'm concerned they can give their prizes to anybody they want for any reason. Alfred Nobel would be spinning in his grave, but that's not my problem.

Hey guys, take a minute and think about how unbecoming your whining about Al Gore winning the peace prize is. Here is a guy that took his dubious defeat in 2000 with grace and moved on. If the shoe was on the other foot we would be having hearings in the Republican Congress forever.

it hads everything to do with peace. Wars get kicked off by resources becoming scarce, as well may happen if global warming plays out.

As far as your intimate knowledge of Alfred Nobel, the peace prize came about over his remorse about his invention of dynamite. This is exactly what he had in mind so I amn quite sure he is resting in peace and would be happy someone like Gore is getting the prize.

Why the bitterness?

And let's stop this idiotic nonsense about Gore claiming he invented the internet. If you were smart enough you would be grateful that he worked to help government set it up. Yes, government.

Posted by: Keith Schmitz | Oct 14, 2007 11:43:22 PM

Gore's defeat was close, but not dubious. Richard Nixon in 1960, now there was grace. Gore was the poorest loser since 1860.

Thank you kindly for the tip. I did go re-fill my prescription for $4 and the local Wal-Mart and Ding Dang, I'm cured!!

I swear we need a message board.

Posted by: Kevin | Oct 15, 2007 12:57:56 PM

I will assume I that I see so many remarks in support of Mr. McMahon's point of view because it is the imprudent right-wing morons who constantly need to find things like this to reassure themselves that Bush is their savior. Rediculous. It amazes me that Bush's supporters STILL cannot understand what really happened in the 2000 election nor do they understand the consequences we will all have for our "leader's" actions in the Middle East. And I am not a Liberal, I am not Left-Wing, I am a citizen of this country who has common sense, a comprehensive thought process and a memory.

Perhaps one of the dumbest comments made but given the lefts blind devotion to a presidential candidate who could not carry his own state...it really is hard to declare a winner.

"We're brainwashing our children," said Dr Gray, 78, a long-time professor at Colorado State University. "They're going to the Gore movie [An Inconvenient Truth] and being fed all this. It's ridiculous."

But Dr Gray, whose annual forecasts of the number of tropical storms and hurricanes are widely publicised, said a natural cycle of ocean water temperatures - related to the amount of salt in ocean water - was responsible for the global warming that he acknowledges has taken place.

However, he said, that same cycle meant a period of cooling would begin soon and last for several years.

"We'll look back on all of this in 10 or 15 years and realise how foolish it was," Dr Gray said.

Posted by: thebunny | Oct 15, 2007 6:18:01 PM

It's amazing how you people can be well fed on so little. My right wing brother sent me this story and so it is, "ballgame over. This one guy says that Al Gore is wrong."

OK you got us. Dr. Gray versus the thousands of scientists who ascribe to findings pointing to man-made climate change.

Desperate. Pathetic.

It is so sad when you all take science and give it partisan take. God thing Democrats weren't the first one to the theory of gravity.

I don't quite get the joke on this one. The left column is things they didn't do, but the right is a true statement. (?) Sorry if I'm slow. Sometimes they're not funny, I understand, but this one seems to be a joke, I just don't get the punchline.

Posted by: JM | Oct 15, 2007 9:22:50 PM

Oh my. I just realized you're serious. Seriously? No, really?
I sure am glad Iraq's all free now. "Evil" regime. Ye gods, man, get your passport stamped. Go travel a little.

PS; your web site claims email addresses aren't posted with comments, for privacy, but in fact does post them. Non-good. Not as tacky as claiming Iraq's all better, but pretty tacky.

Posted by: JM | Oct 15, 2007 9:25:10 PM

Let's see, I'm posting a comment right now. Gee, I don't see any statement that e-mail addresses aren't posted with the comment. Let me hit the "Post" button and see if such a message pops up there.

Posted by: Tom McMahon | Oct 15, 2007 11:15:42 PM

Nope, nothing there either. Hmmmm........

Posted by: Tom McMahon | Oct 15, 2007 11:16:51 PM

Tom, when you hit the Preview button tne next screen has "Email Address: (Not displayed with comment.)"

Posted by: Guy | Oct 16, 2007 7:59:31 AM

p.s. I think you're right-on about Bush and Gore. And why is that guy up there picking on Sarah? It's not like she's the only one who made a pro-Bush comment.

Posted by: Guy | Oct 16, 2007 8:05:07 AM

If overthrowing evil regimes in Afghanistan & Iraq warrants a Nobel Peace Prize, maybe W should take on Iran, Syria, Venezuala, and North Korea next. I'm sure our National Guard units can handle the additional strain and I'm sure there is nothing they enjoy more than having their tours extended by months and being away from their families.
