How Best to Handle Fat Al?

Al Gore was in south Florida last night. The alleged reason was to promote his global warming hoax. But I wonder if he also wanted to reminisce over some previous dealings he has had in the area. No matter. About 200 protestors showed up in Boca Raton to express their love and affection for his talent at spreading bullshit

BOCA RATON - Former Vice President Al Gore's global-warming speech Saturday night at Mizner Park drew about a thousand attendees, as well as more than 200 loud protesters.

Stationed outside the Mizner Park Amphitheater, the protesters jeered at Gore as he took the podium and at those walking into the open-air venue to listen to the speech.

"This is the most dangerous crisis we've ever faced," Gore said of climate change. He spoke over a chorus of boos from protesters, who were monitored by at least a dozen uniformed city police officers.

Many of the protesters were with the groups Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow and South Florida Tea Party, the latter of which feels that Gore's views will eventually lead to increased taxes and flawed business legislation.

The protesters carried drums, bullhorns and posters. One read "Practice what you preach," accusing Gore of not living a green lifestyle. Another poster read "The masses follow the asses," depicting the protesters' opinion that Gore's message is not backed by scientific evidence.

I think our allies in south Florida have the right approach. Although the research of Steve McIntyre, Ross McKitrick, Anthony Watts, and many others has been very useful to help persuade thinking people that the earth's atmosphere is not warming, moonbats like Gore did not arrive at their positions through thinking or reason. Thus, it is unlikely they can be persuaded to change their positions through reason and evidence.

The best approach has been demonstrated by the protestors in Boca. Laugh and ridicule Gore and his followers. Laugh them right out of the place.
