Here is the funniest quote I saw on a blog (www.althouse.blogspot.com) about the idicy of giving Al Gore a Peace Prize. Kudos to Paul Zrimsek for the apt and funny assessment. See Paul's blog post below:
"...The best thing to do with the Congressional Medal of Honor now would be to give it to the person who did most to bring peace to some war-torn part of the world, since the Nobel Peace Prize is apparently no longer available for that purpose.
War heroes could get the Pulitzer Prize instead. We'd make it up to the people who write the best newspaper stories by awarding them the Stanley Cup.
The best team in the NHL would get the donations George Soros used to give to prominent lefty spokesmen before that function was taken over by the Nobel Peace Prize."
