Help Us, Glenn Reynolds, You’re Our Only Hope

What fresh hell is this?

Former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore will be honored by the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, with only the third honorary degree granted by the campus. The degree was approved by the UT Board of Trustees at their meeting today.

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. He will be the featured speaker at the ceremony, addressing graduates and their families along with the gathered faculty.

“Vice President Gore’s career has been marked by visionary leadership, and his work has quite literally changed our planet for the better,” said UT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek. “He is among the most accomplished and respected Tennesseans in history, and it is fitting that he should be honored by the flagship education institution of his home state.”

Good grief.

Yesterday, The Anchoress noted Gore was a “toothache of a man.” Rightly so. I am so tired of this man and his fraud, deceit and empty blustering.

Help Us, Glenn Reynolds, You’re Our Only Hope. Please tell us this is some kind of April’s Fool joke, just early.

I just hope it doesn’t snow on the UT-K commencement this spring.

UPDATE: Welcome Instapundit readers! While I’m not a Vols fan (duh), I’ll unite with my SEC brethren in protest of this travesty! First Kiffin, now Gore. Saints preserve us.

    H/T InstaPundit. This event could make a great “rendezvous” theme event for conservatives across the state to protest against the Man Bear Pig. I’m a Knoxville expat and would even consider coming home to participate. A rendezvous against Al Gore might even fill Neyland Stadium. It could become an annual springtime event. Play Rocky Top!

    Despicable but predictable! Nobel Laureate, now this. I suppose President OBlahma will be getting the call from his alma mater next…

    […] Good grief is right. What the heck are these people thinking? The most frightening part is that these people are teaching our children. Even Professor Glenn Reynolds couldn’t put a stop to it.

    A very good friend of mine is a PhD in Mathematics graduate of UT. I sent him an email yesterday advising him of the Good News about Al Gore’s Honorary Doctorate in HAGW (Hoax Anthropogenic Global Warming). It sure make his PhD in Mathematics seem a trifle.

    A hundred million “greenbacks attracts a lot of admirers.
