Sunday Roundup

Big winner of the week: Al Gore, officially nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for being the Cassandra of global warming (has anyone ever won an Oscar and a Nobel Prize in the same year?). Less of a winner: Rush Limbaugh, also nominated for the Peace Prize, but by a right wing fringe group, not by any of the thousands of groups or individuals officially sanctioned to do so (has anyone ever won a Nobel Prize and been detained at an airport for three hours for carrying a vial of Viagra prescribed under a different name in the same year?) Of course the week's biggest loser was Joe Biden. You know things aren't going well when your campaign kick-off comments necessitate a conversation with Al Sharpton in which you apologize and he assures you that he bathes every day.
