There was to be a discussion today....between the United Kingdom's best debater alive.....Lord Christopher Monckton....former science adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher....and VP Gore...at Congress.
The topic? Global warming. They were to be rigged into a joint appearance at the House Energy and Commerce hearing.
At the last minute....as Lord Monckton was landing...this jointness was turned off.
He was not to be in the room at the same time with Al Gore.
The Lord's comments?
“The House Democrats don't want Gore humiliated, so they slammed the door of the Capitol in my face. They are cowards.”
I sat there for a minute or two...unable to read on. This was the Hulk saying enough was enough, then clobbering me....or Batman saying that he just wasn't finished kicking my ass....or Godzilla winking at you at the last moment before he was supposed to die, and you knew that he was breathing a second life.
The Lord was right....cowards be these men of the House. They had absolute fear in putting Al Gore in front of a real debate.
You see, Al can't debate his fictional truth. Al has the cards dealt to the poker players in a certain fashion. They can't be dealt in any other fashion.
So we missed the main match....kinda like having Elvis and Buddy Holly on the stage at the same time and deciding who could really sing (Buddy).
