Foreign Policy creates useless list of intellectuals

Seriously, Al Gore? WTF?

Had an interesting conversation the other day with a friend about Al Gore that went something like this: Me: Hey look, Al Gore won something – Him: Again? That dude annoys me, he gets like 600k for saying obvious stuff. I can do that. I want to get 600k for saying “we’re running out of ressources, global warming = bad!”.

I’m sure there’s someone in the global warming camp that deserves to get mentioned on that list – but certainly not Al Gore. And just to illustrate that I’m not being unfair: they included Gen. Petraeus. Seriously. He’s a great military leader and all – but what’s that got to do with being an intellectual?
