He’s been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. He was a “hot ticket” recently in Canada. CBS Early Show anchor Harry Smith wondered aloud a few weeks ago if Gore should be considered a “prophet.” And today, the WaPo posted an unnewsworthy piece on Al Gore – on the front page – that describes him as a “rock star.”
Could the mediots possibly slobber over this guy any more?
Well, yes, if he wins a Best Documentary Oscar tonight for “An Inconvenient Truth”, expect a statue to be erected in his honor somewhere close by the “gw doomsday vault” – scaling down his ego to fit might make building the statue there a problem, though.
For what it’s worth, here is a complete list of nominees (scroll) in the Best Documentary feature category, which reads like a left wing “must watch” list:
“Deliver Us from Evil” (Lionsgate)
A Disarming Films Production
Amy Berg and Frank Donner
“An Inconvenient Truth” (Paramount Classics and Participant Productions)
A Lawrence Bender/Laurie David Production
“Iraq in Fragments” (Typecast Releasing in association with HBO Documentary Films)
A Typecast Pictures/Daylight Factory Production
James Longley and John Sinno
“Jesus Camp” (Magnolia Pictures)
A Loki Films Production
Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady
“My Country, My Country” (Zeitgeist Films)
A Praxis Films Production
Laura Poitras and Jocelyn Glatzer
Although he does have some competition from some other left wing ‘talent,’ I predict a Gore win, for the same reasons I believe the Chicks won 5 Grammy awards a few weeks ago. Because who votes on the winners? None other than the famously Nutrootian Hollyweird left. And it doesn’t get much more Nutrooty than Al Gore.
