The Nobel Joke

Congrats to the Goracle, for joining communist dictator Mikhail Gorbachev, Muslim terrorist Yasser Arafat, and treasonous dhimmi gadfly Jimmy Carter among the ranks of those so pernicious as to have received the highest honors the caviar-munching Marxists of the liberal elite can bestow. Personally, I'd be less ashamed of a felony conviction than a Nobel Peace prize, but among moonbats, it's quite an accomplishment.

Too bad they don't give out peace prizes to people who actually advance peace. Instead of gasbag global warming hoaxers, it would go to folks like Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy:

A Navy SEAL from Long Island who was killed in combat in Afghanistan will be awarded America's highest military award, the Medal of Honor, the White House announced yesterday.
Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, of Patchogue [New York], will become the first member of the armed forces to receive the award for combat in Afghanistan and the third for service in the global war on terrorism.
Murphy, who died at age 29, was killed June 28, 2005, while on a reconnaissance mission in enemy territory in northeastern Afghanistan, according to the Navy. Murphy's four-man unit, which he commanded, was searching to provide intelligence on a high-level Taliban leader when they came under attack from Taliban fighters.
Outnumbered by at least four to one, with all four men wounded, Murphy moved out of cover to a position where he could radio for help in an attempt to save his men. While doing so, Murphy was shot in the back, though he was able to finish the radio transmission, the Navy said.

You don't promote peace by flying around on a private jet, giving self-serving speeches about an imaginary crisis that if taken seriously would result in economic devastation. Peace is promoted by those who have the guts to face down the bad guys who disturb it — bad guys like Yasser Arafat and Al Gore.

But at least by having Gore share this explicitly political prize with the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the Norwegian nitwits may have raised some awareness of the kind of political hacks who infest that nefarious pseudo-scientific organization.

And you thought the Goracle was insufferable before…
