Al Gore Called Away Unexpectedly for 'Exciting and Urgent Mission'

Thursday , October 11, 2007

A simple phone call by Al Gore to Sen. Barbara Boxer's office has touched off widespread speculation that the former vice president is getting ready to make an even bigger splash — perhaps as a Nobel Peace Prize winner.

The politician-turned-environmental-crusader contacted the California Democrat to beg out of a Thursday fundraising event for her, where he was to headline alongside musicians Bonnie Raitt and Jackson Browne, the political blog SFGate.com reported.

In a note sent to event supporters and posted on the blog, Boxer wrote: "I just got a call from Vice President Al Gore. He told me that he needs to travel abroad tomorrow for an exciting and urgent mission that could result in a major breakthrough in the fight against global warming."

The San Francisco fundraiser has been postponed until Nov. 9, but speculation is rife that Gore's next public appearance could be in Oslo, Norway, where the Nobel Peace Prize is to be awarded on Friday.

I thought the Nobel peace prize had already lost all credibility, but if Gore gets it, it’ll be a total joke.

LOL, fingers crossed!

Finally this political “prize” will be seen as the farce it is, nail in the coffin.

Another poser exposed.

He’s going to announce his candidacy for the presidential nomination. It might not be smart if he plans on flying ever again.

Al is going to hurl his massive girth into a volvano?

Curious......what do you all think that Republicans should say or do about this, (if it happens)?

Or should Republicans ignore it, as usual?

It's long-ago been an award for socialist, communist, and anti-human thought.

Whosoever is a Nobel Peace Prize winner is automatically my sworn enemy.

Didn’t Jimmy Carter get the Nobel Peace Prize within the last two years? I am pretty sure he did, and it was nothing but a slap in President Bush’s face for going to war in Iraq/Afghanistan.

“...an exciting and urgent mission that could result in a major breakthrough in the fight against global warming.”

So he thinks his scam will gain legitimacy by winning the Nobel prize? Ridiculous!!

Dear Al,

Please consider running for President on the Green Party Ticket.

Thanks,

P.S. If you decide to run, please do not go in the vicinity of Ft. Marcy Park.

His scam is a good one.

Governments and business worldwide are jumping on the bandwagon. Schools everywhere are lying to our children, daily.

We have men in Congress right now proposing more gas taxes, carbon tax, all kinds of confiscatory graft in the name of “climate change”.

CEOs are pandering, lying to customers for profit, ect.

It’s sick, and should not stand.

In his speech, maybe he can explain why Mother Teresa was wrong in her Nobel Acceptance Speech, when she said that abortion destroys peace.

“Maybe Jimm-uh is about to announce his 2008 Presidential candidacy!”

In Carter’s own mind, he has never stopped being President. They love to portray him as a humble southern farmer, but he has a huge ego.

I hope Gore does run for president. Gore vs. Hillary would suck up all the Democrats’ resources. Also, Gore would make a somewhat better president than Hillary. Or more precisely, he’d be a little less terrible. Gore would be another Jimmy Carter. Hillary would be another Hugo Chavez.

That's not a good thing if it means Gore jumps in. I consider myself to be at war (rhetorically) with the ecotard crowd; I think they're the second greatest threat to freedom in the world today (Islam being the first).

Alfred Nobel invented dynamite (among other things, I am sure). I even fail to see why they named the honor after him.

Ohhh, it must be the EnviroRapture! I just know it!

Mother Gaia will now descend in a cloud of life-affirming compost fumes to bestow the mantle of Biological Oneness on Her chosen apostle, the Goracle! All Personkind will live thereafter in holistic peace, harmony and global taxation, except of course the global warming deniers, who will be gently reeducated to cleanse them of their harmful beliefs. It's going to be soooo beautiful!
