The Goracle deserves a Nobel for humor

MEMO TO: Nobel Awards Selection Committee

SUBJECT: Al Gore

Distinguished members of the Selection Committee,

We would like to submit for your judicious consideration the nomination of Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. for the 2010 Award of the Nobel Prize for Humor.

With every passing day and every new headline, it is becoming more and more apparent that no human being in the world is going to provide the Earth's populace with more belly laughs and face-splitting grins throughout year 2010 than Candidate Gore.

Admittedly, that attitude is less congenial at the moment in Washington, D.C. and other locales on the Eastern Seaboard, but that temporary animosity will be short-lived in the aftermath of the three foot snowfall records now being set in those regions. Once the snowdrifts begin to recede in April (or May) good cheer and humor will return to Washington bureaucrats and we will once again see a lessening in the tendency of AGW adherents to refer to Candidate Gore as a stupid, clueless, dummy. It is at that point that we believe that they and the world will begin to truly see Candidate Gore as the clown that he is and thereby deserving of your award, worthy to be erected to your summit of absurdity as the world's most laughable figure.

Your thoughtful attention to this matter is humbly requested.

P.S. We truly hope that the glacial expansion on the Nordic Peninsula does not require evacuation of Oslo and the surrounding environs before the belated summer thaw in Washington, D.C. We realize you are ideologically suited for relocation to Berkley, CA but considering California's impending bankruptcy, we will reluctantly take a few of you here in Texas.
