Former Vice President Al Gore has made himself a much, much richer man by selling his little watched cable channel Current TV to the Emir of Qatar-funded Arab news channel Al-Jazeera.
Gore netted $100 million with his 20 percent stake in the network when it was sold for a reported $500 million on Wednesday.
How much profit did Al make on Current TV? Maybe Eliot Spitzer will reveal Al's take. It's ironic that a Qatari Sovereign Wealth Fund bought out Current TV through affiliate Al-Jazeera.

Red and Blue love PEU and Al Gore got more than a little love. Al got a seven bagger.
