Allow me to preempt the Al Gore haters by bringing the definitive contrarian position from Stephen Colbert:

I don’t think Nobel Prizes should go to people I was seated next to at the Emmys.

I should state for the record that I don’t agree with this sentiment. I’d be more than happy to see a future Peace Prize go to Jeremy Piven or, failing that, Joey Fatone.

The Colbert quote comes from a giggle-worthy New York Times column he wrote as a stand-in for Maureen Dowd. He’s doing his usual schtick as the human möbius strip of mock punditry, and, as usual, he manages to raise a serious question: why doesn’t the New York Times replace Maureen Dowd with Stephen Colbert?
