To bloviate means “to speak pompously and excessively.” That definition comes right out of Wikipedia. Today I heard Bill Kristol describe Al Gore as a bloviator and he went on to describe the Nobel Committee as bloviators. I think William ought to look in the mirror. If there was ever a king of hot air and smoke it is Bill Kristol. I think the right wing pundits are a bit distressed that Albert Gore is in the same category now with Mother Theresa, Martin Luther King and Desmond Tutu.
Truth triumphs at least some of the time. The right wing media outlets are having fun disparaging Mr. Gore’s selection to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Those of use who’ve seen An Inconvenient Truth and live in climates where rivers are running dry and roses are blooming in October for the second year in a row know that Al deserves the award. He now joins Jimmy Carter, Desmond Tutu, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King to name but a few who have been selected for the prestigious award.
