Gore has won the Nobel Peace Prize---now will the conservatives take him seriously?

I mean they always crow about conservative economists winning the Nobel for economics, and use that as some sort of evidence that they're right. The truth of that though is that a conservative Swedish banker made the endowment for the Nobel Prize in economics basically causing it to be skewed towards giving conservative economists who may not even be that qualified the prize.

But, Peace. On second thought I can see conservatives castigating the Europeans for having a prize celebrating 'Peace', saying that it shows a bias in their political system. Yup, unless they have a Nobel War Prize to complement it the conservatives probably won't be happy.
