The jerk is gonna have his n_ts handed to him on the 2004 primaries.

Maybe it is just wishful thinking on my part, but I don't think that will happen. I think Weird Al will win the nomination, and THEN get his keister handed to him. That's the true fun of his little meltdown, he's taking the whole friggin party with him.

I think Al Legwhorey was trying to sound super intelligent so we would all stand in awe at his postulations. See the links above to understand who the real fifth column is.

"That’s postmodernism," he offered. "It’s the combination of narcissism and nihilism that really defines postmodernism...

That is exactly the kind of elitist language that turns people off.

"The media is kind of weird these days on politics"

Because only 98% of media outlets take their marching orders from the DNC instead of the 100% it always has been? Boo frickin' hoo, owl boy.

And oh yes, if you get a chance there, Dodo, mush your dogsled over to the nextdoor igloo in political Siberia and give my FReegards to Tommy Boy Daschole.

Maybe you guys can square off in a primary for Milwaukee dogcatcher. I hear they have plenty of cheese to go with your whine!

HAHAHAHAH

Oh I am enjoying this far too much!

Yeah, people that have the ability to reason are turned off by it. I have a feeling there are those young bohemians (whose votes, gore and his kind lust after) who just eat that stuff up.

You know, like, "Oh wow, man...that al gore is so cool."

He really just needs to take that act to poetry night at the corner coffee house.

Gore is one sick puppy. How many times does he reinvent himself before he goes down on the couch?

If this goofball was elected President I wonder if the country would still exist.

A well-planned, orchestrated attack by the Democrats (probably hatched by the rajun cajun)

Don't forget Terry McAuliffe.

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.

LOL!!!!

Would rather hear what we're going to do or should do now that we have the power.

Ain't that the truth!

Common sense solutions seem to be in short supply lately. Though I have no recollection of politicians expressing many of that kind. Gives a lot of credence to the old expression, "there ain't nothing common about common sense."

It's an odd thing. Books by conservatives regularly top the bestseller lists. But Al Gore's new book isn't anywhere near the top, despite his being all over the media pushing the darn thing. I guess Ann Coulter was right -- apparently, liberals DON'T read.

"I don't get it."

Yeah, I made a bit of a hash of it.

I'll just spell it out and you can rewind it and play at a humor volume that suits you. I get instant mental imagery- you know? Sometimes it's funny and sometimes it's just weird. But when I read:

said Mr. Gore in an interview with The Observer

I pictured that the Observer never actually contacted Gore. Mr Insignificant was probably sitting up late reading a comic book and the idea popped into his head "Hey, I haven't tried to get the Observer to listen to me yet".

So he calls 'em up straight away- but nobody wants to hear him in the middle of the night, so the telephone operator keeps handing him off until he makes it to this reporter's voice mail service. He cheerily tells the machine "Hi, you might have heard of me- I'm Al Gore- and I'm offering you an exclusive." He launches into this long diatribe- mainly because nobody is there to make him shut up.

And during a lengthy discourse on the history of political journalism in America,

I can picture it. Tipper's laying there with one of those sleeping masks and ear plugs while Gore talks and talks and talks until the tape on the machine runs out. I can picture him feeling very warm and fuzzy talking to a fellow machine and even giving it a fond fairwell after the little beep at the end.

The reporter comes back off holiday and finds this weird message on his machine. Figures it's a prank and is about to delete it when one of his colleagues says "But nobody would impersonate Al Gore... Maybe it's real?"

I found it funny for some reason.

Al just locked up the vote in Cambridge and Berkeley, he is securing his base.

You would think that Gore would know better than to release an interview like this at this stage of this career because of the potential blowback. This sort of mistake highlights a key difference between Gore and the Clintons. The Clintons have much more finely tuned political antennae and they understand how this sort of language would be perceived. Which is not to say that they are perfect either, they have their own share of gaffes. But not whopper after whopper , like Al " I created the internet" Gore.The Clintons probably believe much, if not all, of what Gore had to say about the media, think VRWC. The Clintons probably use the same language too, but in private, because they know it would have the potential to alienate people.

I now want Gore to run more than ever because of the sheer entertaiment value his campaign will have.

Are you referencing Jackson Pollack, the painter who ruined
the lives of those around him with such self indulgence and self absorbsion- what a Poster child. You must see the movie
whose main draw in my opinion was the beautiful actress who also starred in A Beautiful Mind.

I appreciate your elaboration. I get it now. It's too late for me to know whether it's funny or not; sorry, the moment's gone. ;-)

But what about things like the Kyoto treaty, or Supreme Court nominations? Yeah, there could be screwups here, but I would probably rather see Bush's picks than Gore's (with the "let's wait and see" disclaimer).

Well...on the Kyoto treaty business I am pleased. Bush isn't wrong 100% of the time.

But on the matter of SC appointments or federal judiciary nominees, it wouldn't make sense for Bush to appoint strict constitutionalists to the courts.

I wish it did make sense but much of the stuff Bush has signed into law, would be struck down in a heartbeat by a constitutionalist.

So, he'll appoint lawyers who will support encroachments on the 4th amendment. So called "law and order" Judges who don't see anything wrong with random checkpoints and other such nonsense. He might find a judge who is less friendly regarding the abortion issue but in general he's looking for lawyers who share his opinions. The only way we'll ever get strict constitutionalists in the courts is to get rid of the democrats AND republicans in office.

By the way, thank you for having such an open mind and friendly demeanor. This was a nice conversation in spite of my own crankiness :)

I've only predicted that Bush won't make a second term. I'll still complain if a Democrat wins. In some ways, it will be worse. But maybe not. The push to paint anyone who believes that the constitution is important as an extremist has already begun. The patriot act will be used to take these people out of the picture. And they can be held indefinately without trial too. That ought to be fun.....

ROTF!!!

No you're NOT, algore, so GET OVER IT!

You want to know the best part? Gore doesn't even have the most keywords, humorous or otherwise. That very dubious honour goes to the fella with the vanity plea to quit making duplicate posts, if I recall correctly.

Gore comes in second again!

Oh, like Al Gore, [who, BTW will be in Memphis for a booksigning tomorrow] you would lose a bet on that likelihood. I did indeed bookmark the lil' feller, and it's on my FReeper profile page, though it took me a little while to recall and find the article's title.

So right here you go.. By the way, how is your sister, who I hear was bitten by a moose, and dropped her cheese.

Likewise, I'm sure!! (I have learned to temper my arguments after a few side trips to the unique Bedlam of the Democratic Underground!)

At any rate, I have to agree with you and Ben Franklin (insert quote about anyone giving up their liberty to get safety deserve neither). This is something we will have to watch, particularly since we don't know who will be President next, and another beastmaster like Clinton could run the country into the ground with unrestricted powers.

"But Mr. Gore has a bone to pick with his critics: namely, he says, that a systematically orchestrated bias in the media makes it impossible for him and his fellow Democrats to get a fair shake. "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." "

This guy is a complete moron. And to top it all off...HE HAS JUST DESCRIBED THE LEFT WING MEDIA STRATEGY FOR THE PAST 40 YEARS!!! I wonder if he will now get in trouble w/ the DNC et al. for divulging their secret strategy!?!? Not the part about the talk show chatter, but the part about putting a story out in a way that suggests what public opinion shuld be and then polling.
