Al Gore Visits South Park
Hello to all the NOVATownhall readers. Thanks to Joe for inviting me to blog here. I hope I can bring both well informed and mature input to this site.
Soâ€¦what better way to begin than a blog about South Park? In last nightâ€™s episode, Al Gore shows up and leads the South Park gang on a mission to save humanity from â€œManBearPigâ€¦half man, half bear, half pig.â€ This spoof on Goreâ€™s crusade against global warming findâ€™s Gore chasing a creature that doesnâ€™t exist while risking lives, claiming credit for things he never did, and just being generally annoying. The running gag response to the question of why anyone pays attention to him: â€œI feel bad for himâ€¦I donâ€™t think he has any friends.â€
Personally, I donâ€™t believe global warming is a threat to life on earth. If it even exists, the threatâ€™s been greatly exaggerated. George Will says it better than I could here. Intelligent minds may disagree and debate forever, but I think the bigger issue is Al Gore. Does anyone take this guy seriously anymore? Why arenâ€™t the real environmentalists shutting him up? Do they really believe he helps their cause?
Since I am opposed to his position, I suppose I should just sit back and laugh at him. Itâ€™s fun.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention, Al Gore is the "star" of the upcoming movie "An Inconvenient Truth"...a documentary about global warming. I'm guessing the boringness of a documentary on global warming combined with the boringness of Al Gore will result in an extremely poor box office showing.
