. . . when Algore’s flogging pseudoscience at the MTV awards, complete with a photo of a glacier melting.
(Flogging as in “hard-selling”. Not flogging as in “beating with a bullwhip”. At least not for now.)
Update, Sunday September 3 Now that Al’s realized that he can’t fill POTUS’s shoes, he’s borrowing Ron White‘s suits.

Amir Taheri: ‘TALK TO IRAN’? IT ALWAYS FAILS
Ralph Peters: AFGHAN REALITY: PAKISTAN’S DOUBLE GAME
So Pakistan is playing both a short game and a long one. It cooperates with us against al Qaeda – and doesn’t want to take the rap for another major terror attack in the West. At the same time, it makes sure that the Taliban has “survival rations.” It doesn’t expect the Talibs to return to Kabul any time soon, but it does expect to see a Taliban-dominated coalition in Afghanistan eventually.
That mustn’t happen. And if we don’t walk away, it won’t. Meanwhile, we can be satisfied and proud that our actions have made a dirt-poor, deeply flawed, feudal state on the other side of the world a better place for the average human being within its borders. Oh, and we ripped the guts out of al Qaeda, too.
More blogging, on a story Wretchard just brought to my attention, later.
