Nobel in breeches

    I'll bite.

    Christopher Monckton or Al Gore?

  2. Gore.

    Oddly, there has been an outbreak of blog posts and comments about whether Gore is the most reprehensible and disrespectful person in the entire universe for wearing cowboy boots to pick up his Nobel prize.

    Not a peep of comment about his trousers being ridiculously short for a man his size.

    I imagine the boots wouldn't have raised much of a fuss in places like Texas or Pennsylvania Avenue (sick, very sick).

    The trouser legs are another matter, but maybe it's a clever allusion to sea-level rise.

    Maybe, maybe so Jacob.

    Assuming that Gore is clever.

    Assuming that Gore has the gift of conveying allusions.
