Suddenly cool Al Gore looks like a good choice
Mecury News ^ | Mar 4, 2007 | staff

Posted on 03/04/2007 9:30:39 AM PST by wouldntbprudent

Al Gore could become the only man to win an Oscar, a Nobel Prize and his party's presidential nomination within a span of 12 months.

He already has collected an Oscar for his global-warming documentary ``An Inconvenient Truth.'' (Actually, that's two Oscars, if you count best song.) He's been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by an admiring Norwegian lawmaker. But to have a shot at the trifecta -- California's presidential primary will be 11 months from tomorrow -- Gore will have to declare himself a candidate for president.

We hope he goes for it.

Al Gore is a washed up manbearpig, only the far moonbat left would vote for the guy.

Can you imagine the "swiftboating" manbearpig would get?

Considering the turkeys that the Democrats have running so far, AlGore is a better choice, I guess.

Oh, Algore's a "good choice,' alright...

For dogcatcher, for lieutenant governor, maybe even for mayor of Nashville, since Nashvillains seem so indiscriminate in their governing tastes.


But President???
Who could be so crazy as to advocate Gore for President?

Breaking from NewsMax.com

James Carville: Al Gore Will Run in 2008

Democratic political strategist James Carville says Al Gore will run for president in 2008, but he fell short of offering his endorsement of that possible campaign.

Carville, appearing Tuesday as a guest on MSNBC’s ‘Imus in the Morning’ program, said Gore’s desire to run for political office might come, not from his Oscar win, but rather from something more primitive.

"Running for president is like having sex,” Carville said. "You don’t do it once and forget about it. You want to do it again. He’s run for president in ‘88, he ran for president in 2000. We know he wants to be president and the stars could line up. I suspect he will get into this race.”

The CNN analyst, author and former Clinton administration operative, will likely support Sen. Hillary Clinton in the 2008 race, but Carville said he is not formally on board with her team.

And that's exactly why we need to make him POTUS. I feel sorry for him.

It would be great if Algore waddled into the race. He would be one more reason that Hitlary would have to expend crucial campaign funds on , as well as pulling her farther leftwards in the primary .

He should be the Pope, secretary-general at the UN, and a judge on American Idol also...

Prediction: "Rodham/Gore"

IMO Hitlery is unelectable and despised (even by Democrats), and will not be nominated.

Gore is gaining more respect, he aligns completely with the lefties and the Bush Derangement wing. Now he's in league with the Hollywierdos and also the Silicon Valley VCs and CEOs. He's rumored to have enough to jumpstart a campaign from his Google and Apple options, and I just don't see him ever paying second fiddle to a Clinton again. Bad mojo.

So I think what we're looking at is Gore/Obama 2008.

Unless the Dim primary is a total knockdown dragout against Obama, I don't see him being on the ticket.
Illinois is a lock for the Dims . The Dim nominee will most likely opt for a Red state Dim to try and peel off a Red state for victory.

He's a laughingstock. Moments after he "won" the Oscar, his outrageous energy consumption coupled with his carbon credit paying-himself-to-plant-trees nonsense was the joke of the day. He's toast.

Al, according to him, spends a lot of time in the bathroom because he drinks so much tea. That way, he can't be held accountable for anything he does, like taking big bucks from Chinese Army bigwig Commies.

He technically didn't win an Oscar. A film in which he appeared won an oscar, which is a different thing. His appearance onstage was a big of showbiz, but there's no Oscar with his name on it, and he won't be recorded as an Oscar winner.

His producers will, he won't.

Trivia, but it relates to the premise of the article.

"He wouldn't be the only good candidate; at this point, every Democrat in the race looks Lincolnesque compared with George W. Bush. And for all the time Gore has spent around Hollywood, he'll never be a great campaigner. Even Cameron Diaz can't loosen him up. When he's in front of a crowd, he still tends to sound patronizing."

What a delusional love-fest. I think the author of this editorial has a crush on ManBearPig. I don't anybody has told this dolt that GWB is not running for president. And I don't think this dolt has any idea of who and what President Lincoln was all about. But he is right about Algore, he will always sound patronizing. That is why I printed out my 100,000 pound carbon offset certificate the other day so that I can ignore his bloviating. I did not even know that Cameron Diaz tried to loosen him up. She better get another job I think Leo Decraprio has replaced her.

Really .. these people must still believe in fantasy and the tooth fairy. They obviously have no discernment skills.

Gore's mansion in TN uses 20 times the amount of energy he is saying you are NOT entitled to use. And .. he sells his carbon offsets TO HIMSELF FROM HIS OTHER COMPANY!!

George Bush's home in Crawford is 20 times more environmentally friendly than Gore even thought about being. But .. as usual .. Bush gets no credit.

Anybody who would vote for Gore has rocks for brains. Having lived in the SF Bay Area - most of the people there have rocks for brains.

I think AlGore should run for President! If nothing else, every single FReeper who made "Gore" part of their name will sound current again throughout the election season.

Not that Al Gore is sane or anything, but from the perspective of "entertainment value? Loads of laughs, friends.

Unless he wins...

"George Bush's home in Crawford is 20 times more environmentally friendly than Gore even thought about being."

Six years as president and I'd never heard that his Crawford house is geothermally heated/cooled to a constant 65+ degrees, and that it has self-contained greywater processing.

Good thing the press has kept that top secret from the public.

Dim primary is a total knockdown dragout against Obama

Today's news may have changed my mind on Obama as Rat candidate.

By summer Hitlery's thugs may have succeeded in painting him as the ol' slavemaster with DNA from European nobility, and that he's really just another terrible white man disguised in mulatto clothing.
