Yea... it's on the corner of Pennsylvania and Connecticut.

Hey, he teaches journalism... a profession today that equates to prostitution.

The “unwashed” don't read and no conservative will buy it.

I wonder how long he'll hang in for 2004.

By the way, read my comment #50, which should also have been addressed to you.

The Gores are certifiable, in my opinion.

Howlin also saw it, among others. We were on a live thread about the convention, and were watching the C-SPAN coverage. Network people didn't get this treat! LOL!

Looking at Algore's screwed up family, why in the world would anybody listen to what he has to say on family matters?

"And his crummy books have been touted to the heavens on every national network morning show ad nauseum! What book tour ever had such a fawning network television red carpet rolled out, day after barf alert day?"

"Compare Algore's invisible sales to the mega sales of Coulter, Goldberg and Hannity which had only negative reviews on network TV. It just shows how irrelelvent lamestream network televsion is becoming to politics compared to radio, the internet, and FOX."

Pretty much sums it up right there.

In a never ending effort to promote Christian understanding and assistance, I offer the following as a solution to the Gores. Get the NEA to promote the books as required reading in the Social Studies section of their school curriculum. That should be good for several hundred thousand sales and a reasonable payback for all that Al has done for the teachers' unions.

This is why Daschle, Gore, Shrum, Ann Lewis, Begala, etc have no clue what is happening in the political wind in America. I believe that they are so dismissive of "right-wing" media that they were truly blindsided by the election results of this November.

Just checked Amazon.com five minutes ago:

Al's book is now 2,404 on the Amazon.com "best seller list!!"

ROTFLOL--Even The Forehead's latest flop "It's Still the Economy, Stupid" (released 11/2002) is beating Al's book in sales, ranked at 2,378!!

LOL, I'm laughing so hard, I can't stand it!!!!

I recall that scene in the house tour, but remember Tipper standing nearby acting cutesy-kittenish (not a good look for anyone over five, and especially not for an overweight, middle-aged, self-confessed depressive.)

One incident at the Dem Convention, when Al Gore was nominated he looked surprised and then as thrilled as a prom queen. There was a flurry of quick hugs and handshakes; his son was standing behind him and to the side. When Al Gore turned to greet backers, the son, apparently thinking his father wanted to embrace him, moved towards him smiling, but Algore shoved him aside without looking at him, and the son, looking around, the smile still frozen on his stricken face, moved out of of the family circle.

The "kiss" got so much attention that the implied rejection of his son was not noted in any news reports. This segment was rerun recently and it seemed quite stark to me. The boy, slightly overweight, looking bright and expectant when his father turned around, and then awkward and embarrassed when he was brushed aside.

My husband thinks his children hung the moon and stars; his face lights up if he sees them even at a distance. On a crowded stage or anywhere else, he would see only them, embrace only them. I can't believe family guru Gore's brutish indifference to his son was not noticed by others.

Albert III is the invisible child, for sure. Gore got him into Harvard (one of those legacy things, apparently) and he disappeared from view, unlike his publicity-seeking sisters.

Here's some more on the Al/Tipper book, from the Washington Times:

"I hadn't intended to read that Gore book on families," David Frum writes at National Review Online (www.nationalreview.com). "I expected it to be a sugary celebration of home and hearth, a public-relations exercise aimed at convincing suburban moms and other swing voters that Gore was not in fact an android but a man with a heart as big as all of Tennessee. In other words: something yucky," Mr. Frum said. "Not so, according to Andrew Hacker, a very smart left-wing sociologist, in the current (Dec. 5) issue of the New York Review of Books. Hacker contends that 'Joined at the Heart' follows in the tradition of 'Earth in the Balance': another Gore production written in a voice of almost terrifying frankness. In 1992, Gore told us that if he ever became president, he would dismantle the American economy in the name of environmental regulation. Ten years later, he is ready to execute similar destruction on the American family. I think I am going to have to read the dratted thing after all." link

At first I thought that was a description of one of the families profiled in Al's new book.

You mean they're not? :^)

I had to look up the word "trepanning" and ran across this typical liberal family. I think Al didn't include them because they are British. The Dems could certainly get more voters if National Healthcare guaranteed holes in everyone's head.

You just had to remind me of the Alpha male Al, didn't you? Fortunately, Dubya effectively neutered that strutting Alpha male with one perfect look during the debates. I wish I could find the picture. It would be the perfect antidote.

Perhaps he should have titled the book "Meine Familie"?

Maybe John Dingell will run for the presidency in 2004 and get former DC mayor Marion Barry as his running mate. It could be the Dingell/Berry ticket.

Expect little Tommy to introduce a bill obligating everybody who works for a living to buy a book under penalty of 20 years or $1 million fine.

Anyone who earns over $100k must buy 10, and anyone who earns over $400k must buy 1000.

There. Problem solved. It was so unfair!
