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.
That is exactly the kind of elitist language that turns people off.
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!
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.
If this goofball was elected President I wonder if the country would still exist.
Don't forget Terry McAuliffe.
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."
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.
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.....
