Gagworthy moment of the week: WaPo piece on “rock star” Al Gore (UPDATE: GORE & Co. WIN – VIDEO ADDED)

He’s been nominated [1] for the Nobel Peace Prize. He was a “hot ticket [2]” recently in Canada. CBS Early Show anchor Harry Smith wondered aloud [3] a few weeks ago if Gore should be considered a “prophet.” And today, the WaPo posted an unnewsworthy piece [4] 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 [5]” – 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 [6] (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
Davis Guggenheim

“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

The pre-Oscar love fest has been joined by none other than Jimmy “give Hamas a chance [7]” Carter. Watch him speak lovingly of Gore here [8].

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 [9] a few weeks ago. Because who votes on the winners? None other than the famously Nutrootian [10] Hollyweird left. And it doesn’t get much more Nutrooty than Al Gore.

Update: Allah’s providing a running commentary of the Oscars here [12] and notes that the “Goracle” adulation started early on.

Mon AM Update I: Here’s a shocker: Gore & co. win and the Gorgasms continue [13].
