Nobel Prize as Sales Pitch

Well that didn’t take long.

Here's the new and improved pitch from the publicists pushing The World According to Gore: The Incredible Vision of the Man Who Should Be President:

"Three down. One to go. Oscar. Emmy. And now the Nobel Peace Prize. Al Gore can complete the Grand Slam by declaring his candidacy for president. With this latest accomplishment, which he shared with the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the Draft Gore movement has been given a huge steroid-like boost. "Will he or won't he run?" For the past few weeks, it's been the question creating tremors of mounting interest on the left side of the Net. Now the entire media all wants to know.

And so on.
