If it makes Al happy to get his prize, then yes, I also say more power to him and let him have it. I still don't get what he's actually done to advance world peace in practice- theories are great, but successful implementation is the real challenge.
Quite frankly, I'm rather tired of his whining and complaining, (I guess I'll nickname him Al the Green Vox Wah Pedal
) and would give real money if he would simply shut up, at a minimum, for just one month. He's not green in the eco sense (it takes $650.00 per month in electricity just to heat his pool house, for Pete's sake!), but green with envy that he didn't get to be president.
Then he wants to throw out 230 years of Constitutional law because he didn't like the outcome of what was admittedly an unusual, but not unprecedented Electoral College result. If the roles had been reversed, Gore would have, of course, fought tooth and nail to defend the Electoral College and electors.
But, this is a peace prize&the results have been anything but!
I'm actually quite surprised
that they didn't give Ahmandinejad the Nobel prize during his recent visits to the UN and Columbia University. That idiot thinks that the best way to ensuring world peace is to "simply" get rid of Israel. No one needs to worry about arable land/water or anything like that. I think that- unless a person has been under a rock for the last 20 or more years, it's fairly evident where the trouble begins..and will end.

I've always thought that loud and excessive
profanities and insults, as an everyday behavior, just positively screams poor, (x) trash- such as the classic poor white trash.
It's also a sign of a not-so-good upbringing, and is really unacceptable in most social and business situations. I've rarely seen it impress anyone or at any time.
It's funny&at the same time, disgusting. Arguing is one thing, but ripping someone into pieces over an issue is quite another! Calling someone an idiot and worse just because they do not agree with you. Yhats really going to change someone's position.
As atonement, I think that the BBC should have to make a "Top Ten Slap List" of the worst trolls in that thread, publish their private identities, and then let everyone else rip them (or at least their computers, heheheh)- to shreds by sending them worms, trojans, rootkits, attack scripts, - the works(!), etc. for being such brave little keyboard warriors! A nice virtual playground style ass whipping, and it'll teach them a valuable lesson in manners, and should at least make them check their poor social skills!
