WARMNESS DENOUNCED

Al Gore was a winner even before his Oscar glory:

Sunday’s Union of Young Communist’s newspaper reported acting Cuban President Raul Castro “recognized the effort of the former vice president to denounce” global warming during a two-hour meeting with youth leaders on Friday. Cuba’s official and only television media showed Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” on prime time this month …

Gore denounced global warming! Has a bolder man ever lived? Other Oscar-related highlights include:

• Jodie Foster’s comment as she arrived at the awards during a Gore Effect coldening:

“It’s freezing! Are you kidding me?”

• Jerry Seinfeld’s reaction to passionate Oscar eco-love:

Al Gore was on stage, congratulating Leo DiCaprio for being an eco-warrior, when the camera panned to the audience – and settled unfortunately on the comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who was in the middle of an epic yawn.

• Gwyneth Paltrow’s cranial alignment:

Gwyneth Paltrow tilted her head and offered a regal wave.

Always knew she was a tilter. And:

• This Oscars-morning Gore Effect alert from Ace of Spades:

I woke up in Washington, D.C. with about 6 inches of snow on the ground and the roads too icy to travel upon. The nation’s capitol (a.k.a. Prince Albert’s hometown) was essentially shut down due to an unexpectedly severe winter storm.

    1. After four weeks of bitter cold, we’re finally seeing above-freezing temps in Maine. It started warming up late last week.

      For those unfamiliar with US geography, Maine is at the opposite end of the country from Hollywood.

      The Gore Effect – it can’t be denied.

    1. No sooner did the Oscar coverage begin when snow began to fall in Monroe. Muscled my way through the white crap this morning thanks to my Gaia-eating SUV.

      Do they watch the Academy Awards in equatorial states? I’d like to know if they got any snow.

Now we’ll be subjected to not only a putrid car, but also non-stop enviro-yammering whenever the subject turns to Honda and its “bold” “ecologically sensitive” New Style.

      You mean he hasn’t taken his one-man slide show to Broadway yet? In that case, he’s missing a real bet. An Inconvenient Bunch of Warm-mongering Exaggerations, Half-truths, Outright Lies and Other Assorted BScould become a dinner theater staple, kinda like Give ‘em Hell, Harry and Mark Twain Tonight.

      I have only one Oscar note: I’m glad Alan Arkin scored an upset. He’s a funny, funny man and I’ve been a fan for years. Oh, and I consider Melissa Etheridge a major musical talent. I hope her winning song wasn’t too awful. (guess that’s two Oscar notes)

      That is very, very depressing Crispy, and only 19 dys and 7 hours to green lights.

      The announcers on the NASCAR telecast over the weekend said something about some eco-measure that NASCAR was taking with their fuel now.  No, I don’t remember and I don’t care.  Here you have no more than 43 of the most highly efficient engines running for about three hours.  They are running at an event where the sponsors encourage thousands upon thousands of not so fuel efficient cars to drive 80 to 100 miles to Fontana where they can idle for an hour in line waiting to get in the parking lot.

      The absolute death of common sense and rational perspective.

    1. #12, Kyda,
      Thanks for reporting about Arkin.  He’s long been a favorite of mine, as well, and not just as a superlative comic actor, though he’s certainly that.  Arkin portrayed one of the most unrelentingly vicious criminals in Wait Until Dark(with Audrey Hepburn) I’ve ever seen, and his method was as understated as that of his comedy.  Brilliant stuff!  He still scares me when I watch that movie!

    1. O/T But a big welcome back to Media Watch, whose staff are soldiering on despite barely getting four months off for Christmas.

      Rather like last year, the first ep was reasonably apolitical, but give them a few episodes before they start spouting about the Launceston Examiner’s shameful quoting of someone from the timber industry, followed by an inaccurate expose of some obscure conservative blogger.

    1. Quite right, Salty! Arkin’s a great all-around actor (and a superb villain), but his funny side is my favorite. He’s one of the best “re-actors” around. I love watching him react to Peter Falk’s character in The In-laws. Just thinking about that pair makes me laugh. Serpentine, Shelly. Serpentine.

    1. That acceptance speech in full;

      “My fellow rich Americans. I really do appreciate all the effort you people have put into this thing. I understand that many of you have lost all credibility with the mainstream media, political circles, and even some of your children, in an effort to further my cause. In light of all of this it is only right of me to offer my deepest thanks to everyone who believed in me enough to take me at my word without actually researching the stuff on your own.

      You guys have been a riot. It is also only fair of me to let everyone here know about the joke before I tell those unbelievers. Here, ladies and gentlemen, is the unadulterated truth; Global warming was a joke I thought of in a counselling session after my defeat by that horrid Bush person.”

      Though he went on to speak for an additional 19 hours, the transcript is basically a repetition of those first couple of statements. In response to a question asked by a reporter outside the building after the men in white coats arrived, Mr. Gore said simply:
      “The evidence of Global Warming? Ya, that was my idea too. I actually had my dear friends Bill and Melinda help me get Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s uranium enrichment sites established about a mile underneath Antarctica. You know, I figured the heat from the reactors would make the icebergs melt, which could be pretty convincing.”

      Vice President Dick Cheney was unavailable for comment; though we were assured he would be back from his hunting trip with Barrack Obamba promptly.

    1. I confess I’ve been silent for far too long on issues important to our planet.  This is the only planet we have and if we lose this one, we’ll never get another one (bumbadumbdumba to San fernando..)

      It’s time for all of us out “there” to add our condemnation to global warming for:

      .. failing to bring promised improvements to Canadian winter conditions (I’m back in Montreal for a month and I can attest to this),

      .. failing to produce an increase in hurricanes, tornados, warmer oceans, etc.

      .. failing to wipe out annoying island nations which have a vote at the UN even though they only have a population of 13 interbred mutants..

      The list goes on.  So much promised, so little delivered.

      Gore and Co. remind me of the great old Irish folk song, whose name escapes me:

      “the people they rant and they rave and they shout

      they talk about stuff they no fuck all about”

      “POWER: GORE MANSION USES 20X AVERAGE HOUSEHOLD; CONSUMPTION INCREASE AFTER ‘TRUTH’
      Mon Feb 26 2007 17:16:14 ET

      The Tennessee Center for Policy Research, an independent, nonprofit and nonpartisan research organization committed to achieving a freer, more prosperous Tennessee through free market policy solutions, issued a press release late Monday: . . .
      [T]he Tennessee Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for hypocrisy.

      Gore’s mansion, [20-room, eight-bathroom] located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).

      In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.

      The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.

      You still haven’t answered my question:  have you looked at The AlGore’s (precipitation be upon him) electricity bill?  It looks like that Tennessee Center did what we like to call “research” whereby we investigate things called facts” to determine that Al-AlGore (hailstones be upon him) spend a whole freakin’ buttload of money on electricity last year—and said electricity creates all the evil carbon that is causing goebbel warmeneninging.  At least, according to said Ala-AlGoregon (hurricanes be upon him)

    1. I love it when the left show their inner self. Although even I was shocked by this turd exposing its prolapsed rectum.

      You can see how foul its comments are in the family thread (While it still exists).

      Same here. The clown has done nothing but confirm our view of leftists as loathsome, childish cretins.

      Damn, I’m glad I’m on the right side.

    1. Just goes to show what happens when a leftoid actually tries to engage in individual action…he makes a total ass of himself and doesn’t even realize it one bit.

      Better stick to waving placards in a frenzied mob, kiddo.

      I looooove your moody look, aaron.

    1. aaron__ on the family thread:

      “I don’t discriminate, but I expect to settle down with someone tall. I hated being short and want to improve my kids chances.”

      Sorry to disappoint you champ but not only are you a no account loser but you are a short no account loser(apologies to any short non-losers on here) and your prospects of settling down with anyone, tall or otherwise, are non-existent!

      As for breeding- GOD FORBID!

    1. #82 – Under the whip

      The real aaron_ made that comment.

      His badly decomposing doppelganger aaron__ is trying to ride to fame on a stolen horse.

      It’s a mite confusing, but not as much as his sexual proclivities.

    1. The real aaron_ made that comment.

      That’s a relief. I didn’t see anything offensive about that one, so I replied to it straight-up.

      The comment I’m referring to came later, from the troll-aaron.

      Poor real-aaron.

    1. I have banned aaron__ and removed the Krugman article he plagiarized. By the way, the freshly banned aaron__ (double underscore) is not the same person as longtime commenter aaron_ (single underscore), so there is a third violation (besides plagiarism and trolling) to be banned for: making a screen name that is the same (or so close as to be confusing) screen name as another commenter’s. For a moment there I thought the original aaron_ had had a brain hemorrhage or something.

    1. Thanks, Andrea.  I could handle double underscore aaron—if he had a different handle.  But that Krugman thing—- shudder.

    1. If he’d just quoted a passage and linked to a source I’d have left it up, obnoxious as it was. I’d still have banned him, though, for the other two violations.

      Don’t feel sorry for aaron_. I’m pretty sure that having a troll steal your name is the only way to get promoted from scalawag to minion. He’s probably at a marching out parade right now.

    1. 85. thanks IT.

      I can tolerate a lefty troll, that’s easy time.
      But you have got to be one cowardly SOB to mask your comments by mimicking someone else’s login name.  My apologies to aaron_ and an appeal to the dark mistress to ban the no content weenie aaron__ who does not apparently have the courage of its own convictions.

    1. My own pick for weirdest moment of the Oscars was when Melissa Etheridge was singing her dirge from Inconvenient Truth.  Strange haiku/ concrete-poetry-like injunctions about saving the planet were projected on the screen behind her, and the remarkable thing was how many of them included the word ‘pray’.  Funny too, how the whole song is about ‘waking up’, when the essence of Gore-olatry is putting your reason to sleep.

    1. I’m getting confused.

      Apologies to the good aaron_ (single underscore, or is it double?) if that is you in the dating ad.  I’m sure you will find that special someone soon.

      But if it’s you, bad aaron__ (double underscore), then you are an ugly, pompous, skinny, short (im not tall so i can be shortist), sad, pimply loser.

    1. #90, aaron_ seems to spend some time asking inconvenient questions on goebbels warming sites so I’m not surprised that he’s attracted a stalker or two. He fully deserves the promotion just for putting up with those bozo cultists.

      Even Bryla knows when to shut up.

    1. John Travolta has been boasting to Joan Rivers on the red carpet about his new house, which features its own airport for his private jet. Rivers tried to get a laugh by asking how Travolta managed to get the smell of jet fuel out of the living room.

      Three cheers for Barbarino, regardless of his religious affiliation. This from the Seinfeld article here, in which Jack Nicholson looks like Mr. Clean.
