Liberals like to fancy themselves as purveyors of knowledge, who must look down from their ivory towers and enlighten conservatives to the ways of the world. How else can someone like President Barack Obama, whose life experience consisted of community organizing, find the audacity during his State of the Union speech to lecture the Supreme Court, some of the most seasoned scholars on Earth?
This past week, the web was abuzz over news that former Vice President Al Gore had emerged from his not-so-carbon-neutral mansion to sell his failing cable network, Current TV, to the Al Jazeera network.
While I’m going to miss all those anti-Mormon documentaries it has been running for the past year, the loss of Current means Americans will now be able to watch a new network that puts a positive spin on the darker side of Islam. Who doesn’t like that? Besides, now I can catch up on episodes of Al Jazeera’s hit sitcom “Everybody Loves Jihad.”
