The Nobel has a shine?

Tennessee Center for Policy Research has issued a press release saying Al Gore is not deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize. While I don't disagree with that at all I take issue with their tag line:

“Making Al Gore a Nobel Laureate would forever tarnish the Nobel Prize.” TCPR's Drew Johnson.
I'm thinking that ship sailed long ago. Cruise through this list of previous winners from the Nobel Foundation or this one from Wikipedia with some descriptions and most of us would agree, whether we lean left or right, that Gore wouldn't be the first to create a dull patina on the penance for dynamite prize.
