The Muslim-Danish cartoon controversy has provided an excellent teaching opportunity in which the West demonstrates to the Arab world how even insulting/silly/opportunistic/sycophantic speech is allowed expression in our world in the belief that Truth ultimately will prevail.
Exhibit A: Al Gore.
The former vice president spoke in Saudi Arabia recently at the 2006 Jeddah (not to be confused with Jihadist, though we're not sure why) Economic Forum, where he bashed the U.S. and made Kumbaya noises about all just-getting-along.
Which is fine. We'd all like to just get along, but could the Saudis go first?
Perhaps Gore, instead of slapping the U.S. for behaviors unbecoming a superpower, might have asked the Saudi monarchy to stop sponsoring terrorists. He might have asked them to stop funding Islamist schools that teach future terrorists that the U.S. is the Great Satan and that all Americans are infidels who need to be killed.
That would be a nice start to our keeping open channels of friendship and mutual understanding. On the other hand, it would probably be considered bad manners to bring up terrorism and that Wahhabi thing while a guest in the Host State. Better to bash the homeboys, who can be counted upon to resist the urge to behead people with whom they disagree.

Doesn't one have to actually hold public office to qualify as a politician?
The rest of the statement seems correct.
Al Gore bitter?
In other news, water....still wet.
Please this is breaking news. Have it posted there ;-)
In related breaking news Jimmy Carter is also.
and that's on top of being a dufus.
Gore comes across like some sort of confidence man. And not a very good one at that.
He discusses the science of global warming like a hack. It's shocking anyone takes him seriously anymore.
Oh yes they are bitter. They are bitter because they were incompetent and shown up, and now lash out with rage.
Both of them know they are religated to the worst list for history and hate the world for it.
Neither that noun nor that adjective would have been my choice.
Perhaps 'Whackjob moron'. Perhaps 'Failed would-be tyrant'. Perhaps 'Megalomaniac putz'. Perhaps 'University flunk-out champ'. Perhaps 'Incompetent soi-sidant elitist.'
Perhaps even 'not worth a bullet.'
So .. you don't think former VP and House Rep qualifies him as a politician ..??
You consider a politician has to be a person who is currently serving in the govt ..??
Not just holding a public office defines a politician, but I would think having aspirations/campaigns to win or hold a certain position in the future would also make one such. As it turns out, Al Gore has neither. He is not in public office, and is not trying to be. He WAS a politician, but I'd say he isn't anymore. Now he's just an angry, bitter sociopath who desperately tries to hang on to public attention with outrage.
Your analysis is interesting. I guess I hadn't thought much about it .. but you make a good case.
I don't know that Al is a sociopath...I just think his dope smoking days lasted way past college. He talks like it, acts like it, and flunks grad SCHOOLS like it. He blimped up like it too.

Bingo, YOU got it right....
The sonuvabitch is insane, and dangerous to the Republic.
In my opinion, he has ALREADY crossed the line to draw charges of Aid and Comfort to the enemy at the VERY least.... Treason, not out of the question...
