Al Gore Gets Stoned

with 6 comments

Sometimes you just gotta smile at the lengths politicians go to praise other politicians. In this case, the State of Tennessee is seeking to erect a statue honoring Al Gore.

A resolution urging the creation of statues to be built on the Tennessee Capitol grounds of the state’s two Nobel Peace Prize winners, Al Gore and Cordell Hull, is on its way to a full Senate vote.

The Senate State and Local Government Committee on Tuesday advanced the measure supporting the privately funded statues on a 9-0 vote. The resolution previously passed in the House unanimously.

Gore was awarded his Nobel Prize in 2007 for his work on global warming, while Hull received the award in 1945 for his role in creating the United Nations and improving international trade relations.

Since the project is privately funded, and if the people of the state want a reminder of this charlatan, then go for it. Nevertheless, you have to scratch your head at what some politicians think is important.

In the defense of the people of Tennessee, we might remind ourselves that these same folks refused to choose him as their President.

Politicians are such arrogant creatures.

  3. I have mixed emotions about this. Although Algore is a joke, it would be nice to have a place to visit just to watch the pigeons crap all over him. Maybe they will place a few benches nearby so we can laugh at him in comfort.

  4. Hi LC,

    I would also mention that we didn’t vote for Obama either. There is, however, a dirty mess on the Memphis end of the State where the good citizens of that violent city keep trying to have a statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest removed. Fortunately, afters of after death battle, the great general’s stone likeness is still standing.

    • Hi Grit – Rewriting history has become quite the sport for today’s democratic party. It won’t be long before they begin burning non-approved books – for our own good. I believe we all know where that can lead.

      It can lead to statues in public places representing fat, drunken and licentious politicians.

  5. That’s a terrible insult to Michelangelo, whoever photoshopped the statue of David could at least have given it Fat Al’s head.
