Worse SCOTUS idea than Princess Kennedy: Gore

by Smitty

I thought the HillBuzz suggestion of Princess Kennedy was a decent split of the territory between stupid and absurd.
Pat in Shreveport sees my absurd, and raises me a Nobel Prize and an Oscar: Al Gore for SCOTUS.
Pat quotes the Catholic weekly America:

there is a long tradition of having those with legislative or executive experience on the Court, a tradition that has fallen by the wayside as Presidents have sought nominees with little or no paper trail. Earl Warren was a lawyer, and had served as attorney general of California, but it was his stature as a three-term Governor who was nominated by both parties for the job that earned him the nod for the Court in 1953.

It makes great sense in Hopey-change America. We have a POTUS who’s got more best-sellers under his belt than substantive legislation.
Where Pat’s post only gets a B+ instead of the A grade is that she neglected to nominate RSM instead. Like Gore, Stacy hasn’t a law degree. Unlike the Global Grilling Gadfly, Stacy’s opinions can be guaranteed in advance not to render the reader comatose.

Snowfall warnings have been issued for Atlantic Canada. Environment Canada has issued warnings for eastern New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and northern Nova Scotia. As much as 15 centimetres* of snow is expected to blanket the northeastern areas of New Brunswick on Sunday night with strong northerly winds reducing visibility, the weather forecaster said.

Al Gore was not quoted as saying “Just tell those Canucks to eat more Thai food.”

Fabius Maximus on the “deep solar minimum”, plus a mother-lode of climate links for fulminating friends.

Update II:
Powerline with a Pajamas Media history lesson on the topic.

*That’s a smidge under half a foot. Or a third of a cubit for you really retro types.

Here is some Aussie goodness that, well, makes our former Vice President look a total goon for, say, time number 3,632:

Tennessee Author Coming To Shelf Near You

by Smitty

No, not the Instapundit. Rather Senator Albert Arnold Gore, Junior.

“Our Choice,” will be released in November, printed on 100 percent recycled paper. The book, which proposes solutions to the global warming crisis documented in “Inconvenient Truth,” was called “The Path to Survival” when first announced two years ago.

One wishes the man well. My he win a Pullet Surprise, to form a trifecta with his Nobel and Oscar.
