Al Gore is truly pathetic.

He's a big guy--we saw that when he advanced on George Bush in a threatening manner during one of their debates. I'd say that lowered my opinion of him, but actually I already regarded him as benthic, and it doesn't get any lower than that (the Benthic Zone is where you find whale sh*t and Democrat politicians). But big guy or not, he's diminutive in the political arena.

Gore basically flunked out of politics when he pitched his hissy fit about the election that he lost. Say what you want, call in all the markers that you want--Gore lost the election. Plain and simple. The bull about "stolen election" and all that hasn't held up to to the light of day. Gore lost.

Anyway, knowing that he has flunked out of politics (he also flunked out of divinity school, and that has got to be hard to do), he has embarked on a "LOOK AT ME" campaign. It's a given that politicians are largely driven by ego, and Gore, despite the fact that he's not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, has managed to take the "Hey, I'm still relevant" thing and run with it.

Yeah, he got a Nobel prize, but the Nobel committee has a bit of history involving "statements". They gave Yassir Arafat a Nobel prize, and Arafat spent his career ordering the executions of Jews and other people. The guy (I won't call him a 'man') was a mass murderer, plain and simple. Puts Gore's Nobel prize in perspective. The committee has revealed itself as a bunch of senile old men with a hard-on for the US.

Anyway, it occurs that this is Gore's gambit now. He has ceased to be relevant as a politician (as though he ever was), so now he crosses the globe in his fossil fuel burning private jet and preaches the religion of global warming. "Hey everyone, check me out. I'm still relevant".

Al Gore is a respected activist, nothing more. He has no polical aspirations, he is essentially retired, having won the popular vote for President in 2000. Whats really pathetic is the continued "War on Gore" ... brought to you by the same people who brought us the "war on Christmas," "the war on science," and the term for smear: "swiftboating".

Quite good company you keep there guy...

Give it up. The "Swiftboating" thing was started by guys who served with Kerry. Who better to judge his character?

"War on Gore"--that's a new one, though I'm not surprised given that Gore is a moron.

"War on Christmas"--certainly not a Bush-inspired thing.

And the "war on science" meme is something reported and repeated by people who know nothing about science. As fate would have it, I'm an honest-to-God scientist(bet you aren't). Bush simply said the US would no longer fund any research on new fetal stem cell lines. The US will continue to fund research on existing stem cell lines. If fetal stem cell lines actually worked (they don't), Merck, Lonza. Astra Zeneca (Oh, I'm sorry, you have no idea to whom I refer) would be investing tens of millions of dollars into the research.

Never try and match wits with a better armed opponent, guy.
