Blowing More than Smoke

You have to love this one. A guy goes on Fox (strike one) fronting for an organization called the National Center for Policy Analysis that has received over $390,000 from ExxonMobil since 1998 (strike two). And he decides the way to slam Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth is to say the following (a big swing and a miss):

That’s the problem. If I thought Al Gore’s movie was as you like to say, fair and balanced, I’d say, everyone should go see it. But why go see propaganda? You don’t go see Joseph Goebbels’ films to see the truth about Nazi Germany. You don’t go see Al Gore’s films to see the truth about global warming.

Let's ignore that if there's the slightest hint that anyone on the left calls the right Hitleresque, O'Reilly et al. get their loofah-stuffed tidy-whities all in a bunch. Let's not consider that to be the Nazis, you have to be the people in power, like, say the party that runs all three branches of government or some multi-billion dollar company. We won't even mention that to say propaganda on Fox is like saying Tony Snow is press secretary.

But INOTBB will proudly point out a faulty analogy. What Sterling Burnett is trying to say is Goebbels:Nazi Germany::Gore:global warming. That makes Gore the environment's propagandist? Insert your own Lewis Black triple take here.
