Al Gore Leaves The Light On For Ya

Even during Earth Hour. President of the Tennessee Center For Policy Research Drew Johnson takes a Saturday drive by Al Gore’s during the time most environmentalists went dark:

I pulled up to Al’s house, located in the posh Belle Meade section of Nashville, at 8:48pm – right in the middle of Earth Hour. I found that the main spotlights that usually illuminate his 9,000 square foot mansion were dark, but several of the lights inside the house were on.

In fact, most of the windows were lit by the familiar blue-ish hue indicating that floor lamps and ceiling fixtures were off, but TV screens and computer monitors were hard at work. (In other words, his house looked the way most houses look about 1:45am when their inhabitants are distractedly watching “Cheaters” or “Chelsea Lately” reruns.)

The kicker, though, were the dozen or so floodlights grandly highlighting several trees and illuminating the driveway entrance of Gore’s mansion.

I [kid] you not, my friends, the savior of the environment couldn’t be bothered to turn off the gaudy lights that show off his goofy trees.

I got up and turned on every light inside and outside the house at 8:30 last night, much to my wife’s chagrin. She understood the principle involved and went along.

If you were perpetrating the greatest scam and con job against humanity that the world has ever seen, YOU’D LEAVE THE LIGHTS ON TOO!

A two candle-power brain illuminated by two candles. Fitting.

Howie Carr advises politicians (and others in public life) “never wear a hat”, especially one that can make you look goofy. Think John Kerry in the bunny suit.

Of course not.

Trees turn light + CO2 into O2. More light = more O2 = less CO2!

He's being helpful, dontcha know...

not sure if that works for artificial light...

Maybe the tree floodlights are actually grow lights, so he can count his trees as carbon credits 24 hours a day.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute, in the link below, offers a short video in celebration of Human Achievement, a concept they are promoting to counter the leftist-ecotard-dimwits' Earth Hour (very appropriately symbolized by "lights out" as in the superstitious Dark Ages).

Yes, his burning fossils fuels doesn’t cause global warming and his turds smell like fresh baked cinnamon muffins, ‘cause he’s just so special.

If he’d taken a video they would dispute the time stamp.

I turned on all the lights from 8 until 10 pm. The neighbors who have brainwashed kids all turned their lights out at the specified time.

Why should Gore pretend--he lives by a different standard than the rest of us. But...

How horriable it must be to be Al Gore!

I’m convinced he’s actually Gort, from “The Day The Earth Stood Still!”
“The eight-foot metal robot accompanies Klaatu, a visitor to Earth from a distant planet, aboard a flying saucer. He does not speak, but uses a beam weapon projected from beneath a visor to vaporize weapons and obstacles. Klaatu described him as being part of an interstellar police force. He claims that the people of the universe constructed numerous robots like Gort and gave them irrevocable powers to respond to violent actions in order to “preserve the peace.” He further claims that “There’s no limit to what [Gort] could do. He could destroy the Earth.”

“”Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!”

In Gore’s defense, and I HATE doing this, those landscaping lights might be solar-powered. You can’t turn ‘em off. My little lights around a monkey-grassed walkway are (is that racist?), it was easier and cheaper than wiring the things.

He could care less, he’s a modern day snake oil salesman who duped many people out of their money and is laughing all the way to the bank.

He has a deep need to promote himself even at the expense of his children.

Hey Al, Go home and take care of your family first, it will pay a lot more than you can ever get as a snake oil salesman.
