Al Gore Gets Stoned
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.
