No, no, no.

What they meant was that Gelbspan won the "Pullet Surprise" at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

There is no man made global warming...maybe global warming with human help...but it's all cyclical.

In other news...the world ends at 10 o'clock tonight, update at 11.

The guy still claims he won it. Here is his rationale from a Mother JOnes interview:

MJ.com: What kind of response has your reporting received from the deniers?

RG: The first response that I had was a web-based campaign to impugn my professional integrity. They basically came out and said that I was a résumé fraud. I had said that I was a co-recipient of a Pulitzer prize and they said, “No, Gelbspan never had a role in a Pulitzer prize.” That was pretty hurtful; I was proud of that prize. I was an editor at the Boston Globe and we did a big series looking at racial discrimination in greater Boston. When the Globe won the Pulitzer for this project, the publisher said to me, “This is your series. You conceived it, you directed it; so we are designating you as recipient on behalf of the Boston Globe.” I didn’t feel like I was distorting it by saying I was a co-recipient. When I stepped back and reflected on it, I felt pretty good about it because I realized there was nothing wrong about the book that they could critique, so as a result they resorted to character assassination instead.

"Hot and Bothered", Mother Jones, 4-18-05.

Maybe it was the PUTZ-LIAR Prize.

More from the Dan Rather School of Broadcast Journalism...He didn't actually win the Pulitzer Prize, but he should have. The honor was fake, but accurate.

The Giant Boob award.

Or was it the "Chicken Little" Award?

Of course the globe is warming. It is a NATURAL cycle of this planet in the solar system. Humans have nothing to do with the Orbit of this planet, though some seem to think they do.
