Last night vice president Al Gore won an Oscar in the category of best documentary for his film, “An Inconvenient Truth”. It is rumored that today the Supreme Court will rule that the Oscar will instead be awarded to George Bush.

Yes, I’m just teasing. Congratulations to Al Gore and to the wisdom of the motion picture industry. In many ways we all won something.

I was surprised to read about it this morning! With the way things are going.....
Perhaps now, the naysayers will take notice and actually do something?!

I could see Al was having a good time, too. It's good that it won so maybe more will see the movie.

I didn't see it since I don't have the patience to watch the awards shows. I'd love to see this bit of good news start a grassroots movement to "Draft Gore" to run for Prez!

YEA! Well Deserved.

Little by little, people are moving from the death and destruction of our current phony "Leader", to the moral and ethics of living in harmony with the world and it's diversity from the man who demonstrates authentic leadership qualities.

Good for Al! Saw the news this a.m. Didn't even know the Academy Awards were on last night, that's how out of touch I am.

I haven't seen An Inconvenient Truth.

Guess I should watch it. As for the awards, I wouldn't bother to watch them at all.

Well, see - the Supreme Court will rule that the award must go to the Deciderer, because the Attorney General will remind everyone that there is no GUARANTEE in the Constitution of anyone being able to keep what belongs to them...

Oh hell - Congrats, Al. I'm sure the 23%'ers are stewing in their own juices over it.

You made me laugh, PoP. I hadn't considered what the Supreme Court might do with Gore's Oscar. I did think, when I saw Gore up there on the stage, that there's an award that George Bush will never get. If Gore wins the Nobel Peace prize, I'll be dancing in the streets. One more prize forever out of reach for Bush.

Gore teased us a little last night. I saw a replay this morning in the airport where he was about to make and important announcement during the show but was interrupted by music. They played it just for laughs. Still wish this would give him more incentive to run but he said again last night that He didn't plan on running but he didn't rule it out...

It's the "not ruling it out" bit that REALLY stokes my political hopefullness.

Congrats to Al! Our - if there's any Justice left in this world - next President!

I liked Ellen's comment afterward, about the woman from American Idol (Jennifer Hudson) not winning the kit and kaboodle, and then getting an Oscar. And then referencing Gore winning the vote, but then not getting it but an Oscar was in his future.

PoP: The Supreme Court overturning the Oscar award is brilliant and takes a student of history to appreciate your insight. RE-ELECT AL GORE! And, when he wins the Nobel Peace Prize in November, which is before the NH primary, the stage will be set for a mass movement to get him to run again. We should do so well as to have a documentarian and peace prize winner in the White House.

I haven't cheered at the Oscars EVER. I gave up on them when The Color Purple was nominated in 85 for an ungodly amount of Oscars and didn't take home any. But I wanted to watch it this year and was floored when Gore and his team won. I was really glad to see them get it. Not too happy about the Departed though.

Great minds seem to fall in the same ditch, Patricia. I just commented elsewhere that Gore had better lock his Oscar in a box lest Bush steal that too.

It's worth remembering that Michael Moore won an oscar for best documentary too. I"m glad Al Gore won and I thought it was deserving regardless of politics, but I wouldn't over estimate the political influence of the Academy Awards. I still remember Sacheen Littlefeather.

PoP I was so delighted when Al won last night for best documentary. He was suave and humble all at the same time. Did you see Kvatch's post about breakfast in the White House this morning? It's funny!

Dear PoP,

former Governor BUSH has a hard time making a sentence much less a movie!

What is it with politicians and film making?

Remember the line in Back to the Future when the Doc tests Marty on "Who's president in 1985?"

Mary's reply, "Ronald Regan." prompts the line,

"Ronand Ragen... the actor??! ...and who's vice president, Jerry Lewis?"

I just saw the flick last eve - so I made a post about it at the top of my blog today - basically posing the question, which is worse: the threat of global warming or terrorism?

Pop over all if you care to chime in.

I like Gore. I would him even more if his monthly utility bill were less than my whole monthly budget.
