It Should Have Been Folklore And Mythology

Notorious con artist and fraud Al Gore is going to be given an honorary doctorate by the University of Tennessee:

Gore will receive the degree — an Honorary Doctor of Laws and Humane Letters in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology — at the spring commencement exercises of the College of Arts and Sciences on May 14.

Instapundit is likely quite embarrassed.

[Late afternoon update]

You know, I think that this is pretty much a guarantee that UT commencement is going to be snowed out this spring.

  1. More devaluation of the currency of achievement. Who needs to work to get a doctorate? Just pull a successful fraud, and you’re in!

    There’s a picture going around the internet of a marquis board outside an auto repair shop. It reads: “Free Nobel Peace Prize with oil change.” Kinda says it all…

  2. Please, no more snow! We’ve paid enough for Al’s sins. I didn’t move all the way to Tennessee to get snowed on all the time. I will go down to UT to heckle, if I can.

  3. Alice Cooper had a song in which he sang (of himself):

    You’re something that never should have happened… You even make your Grandma sick.”

    You’ve really hit rock bottom when your Grandma casts you out. Similarly, Al may have friends in high places in Tennessee with influence upon the University system, but the voters of that State did not see it fit to elect him President, at a time when their acquiescence could have tipped the balance. That level of rejection just blasts a tunnel under Grandma’s rock.

  4. Agreed, Bart. Now he’s playing the part of the guy who is looking for an achievement with which to best his old friends. After TN rejected him, he had to save the world.

  5. “an Honorary Doctor of Laws and Humane Letters ”

    I notice they avoided any hint of science.
