Al Gore Wins Nobel Peace Prize

Norway (WVLT) - Former Tennessee Senator and former Vice-President Al Gore has won this years Nobel Peace Prize.

Gore and the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are being honored for their efforts to spread awareness of man-made climate change and lay the foundation for dealing with it.

Earlier this year, the movie, "An Inconvenient Truth," about the former U.S. Vice President's efforts to vamp up global concern won this year's Academy Award for best documentary.

    Shawn -Did you just say you'll apply next year? For what -a Nobel Peace Prize? Hahahahahahahaha Ahhh-hahahahahahahahahahahahahah... Hold on, I'm almost done. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. The fact that you even suggested you could APPLY for a Nobel Prize is so laughably ridiculous that your attempt at satire is completely overshadowed by your stupidity in not being able to respectably recognise the things Al Gore has done. And Peggy -It's awesome to know that you're out there comparing people to a few select individuals as a general yardstick by which all others are judged. If I used your reasoning I could say this: "And Peggy thinks the things she says in her post makes her a smart person? Shawn in Metro Midtown Tenn is proof that writing and posting that which equates to mental-defecation is not an indication of what kind of unreadable gibberish you should write without making others want to stick a pencil in their eyes.

    And they think that will make him a good President? Jimmy Carter is proof that winning a Nobel Prize is not an indication of what kind of President a man would be.
