Gore's very public nervous breakdown is pathetic. He and Daschle seem to be having great difficulties dealing with the new reality.

Yet I wonder if the FBI's continued digging for fraud on the South Dakota Indian reservation might have anything to do with these bizarre outbursts?

There was a guy I went to high school with, a friend in our relatively large clique who never missed an opportunity to lie about something, usually a big and stupid, totally unbelievable lie. Like the time he ripped his KISS bandanna directly off of Paul Stanley's leg at the concert (he found it on the ground outside), and on and on. We called him Ely, cuz 'e lies!! Gore is much worse, and much more shrill. The big whopper from my friend is once he said 'You dont have to lie to keep friends." I guess he knew from experience.

I wonder what Algore's (or Tipper's) response would be if a reporter ever asked them if they thought that lying was acceptable? If they ever got within 50 feet of a reporter that asks decent questions, that is...JFK

"Something will start at the Republican National Committee, inside the building, and it will explode the next day on the right-wing talk-show network and on Fox News and in the newspapers that play this game, The Washington Times and the others. And then they’ll create a little echo chamber, and pretty soon they’ll start baiting the mainstream media for allegedly ignoring the story they’ve pushed into the zeitgeist. And then pretty soon the mainstream media goes out and disingenuously takes a so-called objective sampling, and lo and behold, these R.N.C. talking points are woven into the fabric of the zeitgeist."

The world according to Gore--Fox news is not the mainstream media, despite having the highest ratings of any cable news chanel. And Republican ideas have no legitimate place in the "fabric of the zeitgeist". Zeitgeist. A real man of the people that Algore.

Man what an idiot. Kinda funny how he says this as Rush goes out of town.

Secondly, Gore is so upset about FOX, yet I dont remember him getting upset over the Turner/CNN days. This is how these people deal with jealousy. Next thing you'll hear them trying to push another "fair media doctrine"...oh wait, they cant...THEY HAVE NO POWER! Bwahhahahahahah

I read this and I began to wonder whether or not Gore's loss to Bush has caused him to become mentally ill. Seriously. No sane person could spout this kind of nonsense.

LOL.....exactly what I was thinking. How many of Albore's Palm Beach voters understand the zeitgeist that poor Al is now battling!

"It’s possible that no amount of criticism will keep Mr. Gore out of the race"

Talk about narcissism! He is an impotent little worm, oblivious to social cues.

For now, Mr. Gore can only attempt to explain what motivates the ceaseless lampooning he continues to face from America’s columnists and commentators. "That’s postmodernism," he offered. "It’s the combination of narcissism and nihilism that really defines postmodernism, and that’s another interview for another time, if you’re interested in it."

Uh, yeah, Al. If we should decide we're interested, we'll call ya.

What the heck was that answer about? Trying to prove he can pronounce words George W. Bush probably can't? That oughta garner about six more votes. 531 to go.

It's funny how Democrats accuse Republicans of things they are experts at themselves. His minute detailing of the alleged way Republicans get their points across is a beautiful description of the way Democrats get their talking points in the media. The DNC sends talking points to the NY Times. The NY Times conducts a "push" poll to get the predictable results they want. Then they write about the poll in the front page of the NY Times. The same day the story gets picked up by the Washington Post, CNN, NPR, ABC, NBC, etc. who are the actual mainstream media ... and voila! We have brainwashing of the American people.

Democrats have had it so good for so long, they just cannot stand that they have no longer a monopoly in the media, and because of the small percentage of the media that is now conservative, it looks to them (comparing it to the total monopoly they had) as if the entire media is now conservative!

Sounds like the left wing in America which Al Gore, whether he likes it or not, is one of the standard bearers. Would that he would work to change it rather than use it...

That's probably one of THE most revealing gore rants. He's certifiable and why he isn't in a rubber room, now, is quite beyond me. That being said, I pray to GOD, that he runs against President Bush in 2004 ! I do so enjoy a Dem bloodbath, at election time. LOL

Hillary's philosophy which got her through the Clinton years in the White House, New York Senator and hopefully, for her, another White House.

They think because this is how they play the game that everyone else does the same.

Good Grief!! Hey Al, get a grip on things.

I would love to hear Gore's explanation of how "postmodernism" is the cause is Rush, Hannity et al. lampooning his ridiculous comments and behavior. Well, I guess that we will will have to wait since brainiac did not want to elaborate on that comment during this interview.

How ironic that Gore's definition of postmodernism describes "zeitgeist" the Clinton era all too well.

He sort of reminds you of the one person who can't quite figure out that when the guests have all gone home and the snack tray has been put back in the kitchen that it's time to go home. Of course, we've known that since November 2000. He's no SoreLoser - He's GoreLoser.

Al Gore, the babbling, shameless, accidental henchman of the most criminal president in history, is spewing his hypocritical talking points daily to the pliant Liberal print and television media!

Hilarious! Rich and delicious irony!

Inadvertantly, this incoherent bozo is a founding member of the Republican Resurgence and Perpetual Dominance Club. By his words and deeds, he is the best argument against Democratic leadership.

Al "Space Cadet" Gore is an indispensible part of a stinking, putrid pile of Socialist idiots. Other members of this shrill group include Tom "Thumb" Daschle, Maureen "Spinster" Dowd, Barbra "Babble" Streisand, Julia "Coke-head" Roberts, Alex "The Bloviator" Baldwin, Ed "Fruitcake" Asner, the dirty Clintons "Satan's Choice", Paul "Forehead" Begala, James "Mad Dog" Carville, and Jesse "Shakedown" Jackson.

Media placements by Dan "Transparently Liberal" Rather, Peter "I sleep with Palestinians" Jennings, Tom "Marbles" Brokaw, and Christiane "Baghdad Betty" Amanpour.

Thank God for Al Gore and company.

The GOP will reign for all the days of his life - stay well, Space Cadet.

"We understand that Gore is frustrated," said R.N.C. spokesman Kevin Sheridan. "He’s the leader of a party without a message.

This coming from the spokesperson of a party without principle. Too rich.

I think ALGORE wants to get his ratings down below 5%. I don't get the new Dim straegy to attack Rush Limbaugh and the so-called "right wing" press. I guess the Dims are used to owning the media that they have to whine and complain now that they have opposition.

Can Algore answer to why Viacommie CBS-VH1-MTV edited out the boos that Her Satanic Majesty Hillary received at the Concert For NYC? Boos that were replaced with CHEERS and the past forever changed with a video release with such deception?

When he got to the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy bankrolling all of these news sources, he revealed that he can't see the forest for the trees. "Bush Country" meant nothing to him. The Rats' strategy of going farther to the left to win them over is another tactic that will blow up in their faces.

Who knows? (Sounds sort of like he was talking about museum art with all the "isms".) It also reminds me of hillary on Hardball last week. She turned her hecklers' negative comments around to her own advantage.
from article...

Clinton seemed unfazed by the outbursts. "It's great to see all of this energy," she said.

It's really difficult for these leftists to admit any sort of defeat, isn't it? (...unless, of course, they can blame someone else for it.)

Postmodernism ended the day 2 planes were maliciously flown into the WTC towers. Educated types have declared this. Whiney Mr. Gore will need to find another excuse while he is still belittled by the press and public.

In the words of the Strawberry Alarm Clock:

Incense and peppermints, meaningless nouns.
Turn on, tune in, turn your eyes around.
Look at yourself, look at yourself,
Yeah, yeah.
Look at yourself, look at yourself,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah.

...that is, day after day, injecting the daily Republican talking points into the definition of what’s objective as stated by the news media as a whole."

The "news media as a whole" certainly aren't objective. Watch the election results come in. Watch them slip up and say "that's another for us" when a Democrat takes a national victory. Also watch some footage of the 2000 election returns. See the talking heads all choked up and on the verge of tears when Algore conceded the election. Then watch their renewed energy when Algore took back that concession. Objective? Yeah, like Pravda.

As to talking points. The DNC used to post their day's talking points on their website with the tactics to pull as to how to get on talk radio. The website has been redesigned (most info appears to now come through email lists). I don't think that they have ended this practice, just moved it out of the spotlight.
