Gore says there is a part of the media that is hardcore right-wing Republican that generates stories that gets picked up by the rest of the media.

Therein lies the next sinister plot of the crocodile-brain dimos. They have to eliminate talk-radio and FOX in order to stifle what remains of free speech in this country.

There is no doubt in my mind that he was part and parcel with the Clintons' selling secrets to the Commie Chinese. He knowingly broke the law regarding the soliciting of campaign contributions, and he knowingly broke the law on taking contributions from foreigners not eligible to give. He swore an oath . . .

For the above he is ligitimately called a traitor.

Al just needs to go on Jenny Jones and work off some of that bitterness, along with the nerds who missed their proms thirty years ago.

"we are losing the war against terror"

He is perfectly accurate if "we" = "the democrat party".

Al still pushing the idea that we should finish off bin Laden before we go after Saddam. Glad he wasn't around during WWII.

Gore and the dims are monumental fools. I'm sure by his reasoning that we should have been filing lawsuits against Japan other than destroying the Nazi's in France and then bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Leftists are truly at the bottom of the class, the weakest links, not worth attention.

He is perfectly accurate if "we" = "we democRATs who oppose those who are winning the war against terror".

He should say, to say it more accurately, "we who oppose are losing in the war against terror"

We wouldn't even be having a war on terror if the Clinton/Gore team had done their jobs. They did nothing . Absolutely nothing to stop the terrorists for 8 long years. They even let Saddam slide.

"...is there any sane American who would rather have Gore sitting in the Oval Office right now?"

? Keyword being "sane" of course. Hopefully not. Actually, and some may differ with me on this -- It's not so much a President Gore that would be the problem - I believe a President has so many obligations both domestic and otherwise that they are forced by default to make pretty much the 'same' decisions on some of the key issues. At least, I hope so anyway.

But the people he surrounds himself with - there's no question the President has surrounded himself with some VERY capable people, and for that, I am thankful. I'm considerably less confident a President Gore would have done the same.

For some reason I'm reminded of those who criticise the President for his mispronunciation of the word "Nuclear"; the elite cognoscenti apparently find a straight talking, honest human being to be somehow grating on them, he's not an "intellectual" or one of them, I suppose.

Good!

I just read some sort of philosophical masturbatory B.S. with the former Vice President talking about "post-modernism" and "Zeitgeist"; Puh-leeeze. And he thinks the media is "republican"; I got news for ya pal.

The President drives a pickup, chops wood, etc. Can't find any fault with that. Has a beautiful wife and family, the First Lady brings a decided and necessary dignity to the White House as it deserves. Anybody who eschews the use of "Zeitgeist" and pronounces Nuclear "Nukular" is OK with me. I'm not anti-intellectual, but I've got no use for a sophist in the White House.

I suppose former CNN news chief (and frequent Lincoln Bedroom guest) Rick Kaplan was "playing things right down the middle" when he instructed his news anchors and reporters not to use the word "scandal" when talking about Clinton's scandals? The only thing that talk radio and the internet have done to effect the "mainstream media" is make it a little (though only a little) more honest than it has been for decades. "Hokey smokes! There's another point of view out there!"

I still can't believe Gore said what he said with a straight face. But then, he had contact with the Clintons.
Is "pathological liar" a contagious disease?

Yep. But, unfortunately, it will take many, many years for the truth to be revealed. That's why we have to step forward on our own now. History will persecute the clinton's in time.

Golly! He even claps like a robot!

My husband and I noticed that YEARS ago, as did a Chicago Tribune columnist, Eric Zorn, who wrote a column entitled something like "HANDS DOWN, GORE IS A LOUSY CLAPPER" (and I'm not kidding). I'm thinking we saw Al reveal this "clap" problem (more like an uncoordinated 4 yr. old) during Clinton's State of the Union address. I cut out the article to save for posterity, but it unfortunately got lost in the last move we made to this newer home. I wrote the reporter a note thanking him for the great column - he responded and told me he caught a LOT of heat for that one. I'm talking YEARS ago - in the first Clinton term - around 1994 or 1995.

You Can Call Me Al

( Paul Simon )

A man walks down the street,
He says, Why am I soft in the middle now?
Why am I soft in the middle?
The rest of my life is so hard!
I need a photo-opportunity,
I want a shot at redemption!
Don't want to end up a cartoon,
In a cartoon graveyard .....

Bonedigger, Bonedigger,
Dogs in the moonlight.
Far away, my well-lit door.
Mr. Beerbelly, Beerbelly,
Get these mutts away from me!
You know, I don't find this stuff amusing anymore ....

If you'll be my bodyguard,
I can be your long lost pal!
I can call you Betty,
And Betty, when you call me,
You can call me Al!

A man walks down the street,
He says, Why am I short of attention?
Got a short little span of attention,
And whoa, my nights are so long!
Where's my wife and family?
What if I die here?
Who'll be my role-model?
Now that my role-model is ....
Gone ...... gone,
He ducked back down the alley,
With some roly-poly, little bat-faced girl.
All along .... along ....
There were incidents and accidents,
There were hints and allegations .....

If you'll be my bodyguard,
I can be your long lost pal!
I can call you Betty,
And Betty, when you call me,
You can call me Al!
Call me Al ......

A man walks down the street,
It's a street in a strange world.
Maybe it's the Third World.
Maybe it's his first time around.
He doesn't speak the language,
He holds no currency.
He is a foreign man,
He is surrounded by the sound, sound ....
Cattle in the marketplace.
Scatterlings and orphanages.
He looks around, around .....
He sees angels in the architecture,
Spinning in infinity,
He says, Amen! and Hallelujah!

If you'll be my bodyguard,
I can be your long lost pal!
I can call you Betty,
And Betty, when you call me,
You can call me Al!
You can call me Al ......

There's a time for politics and a time for entertainment! A few more appearances on Leno's show by Al Bore like the one he gave tonight, and he won't be able to be elected dog catcher much less President. Doesn't he know when it's time to shut up! Did Jay look like he was happy to get over with or what?

Speaking of his book, he and Tipsy were in Seattle this past week to do book signings at a local bookstore, and at Costco. The Costco signing was a flop, and they still have mountains of unbought signed books. I see by the issue of the Costco magazine that came today that they gave the books a full page plug, and the article is as dull and boring as he is. Costco is pulling out all the plugs to push the book, because Jim Sinegall who founded (and is CEO of Costco) is a big financial supporter of Democrats. I wouldn't be surprised if the Gorons didn't stay at Sinegal's mansion. That's ok. No amount of promotion is going to make a silk purse out of this sow's ear.

"...I believe a President has so many obligations both domestic and otherwise that they are forced by default to make pretty much the 'same' decisions on some of the key issues. At least, I hope so anyway".

That's a huge and unfounded assumption. Do you think George Bush would have done nothing after the first WTC bombing? You also don't seem to remember all the moaning and groaning the libs were doing during the Afghanistan campaign and the breathless Times reports about the civilian victims. Do you really think that a person who governs by polls like the Democrats do, would have stuck it out? Even McCain was putting on the pressure to put more "boots" on the ground. The body bags would have come in, sapping our morale and determination.
Just because Bush is making the right decisions doesn't mean it's as asy as he makes it look, or that those decisions were obvious. You are right about the people he would have surrounded himself with would have been appeasers (Albright & co.).

Stay tuned, Al Bore is to host NBC's Saturday Night Live in December! In which opening segment, no doubt, he will offer the American public a definition of the word Zeitgeist!

Redhead, top of my class, etc. etc. etc. Suffice it to say that most of my high school classmates spend their free time still hanging out at the local bar/dive in my hometown allthewhile living from paycheck to paycheck, while my husband and I are making triple figures as computer geeks/nerds :-).

He was a traitorist Bastard under Clinton, and he is a Traitorist Bastard now.

And he's still a flippin naive, dopey, out -of-touch, dip-shit. It must have been dropping heavy tabs of LSD and a .223 round he took through his brain in Nam that made him into what he is; a cigar-store indian.

He literally cannot speak for more than 5 minutes without telling a MONSTROUS lie, not a little white one.

He had good training from his boss; El Stainman. Gore is probably adept at cleaning sinks. Gore just loves the Bounty Towels and green Comet sink cleanser.

Zeitgeist is used by some to mean "Sprit of the time." It comes from the German words Zeit = time and Geist = ghost.

People who are as shallow as Gore used 50 cent words to try to make themselves look like deep thinkers.

I saw Julia Roberts on Larry King once, and her word was genre. Genre this, and genre that. Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre GenreG enre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre Genre.

No, but he told his one and only joke (which he slips in at *every* interview), the one about being late because he no longer gets motorcades (or "they no longer stop traffic for me")...

He also drove another old standby into the ground when he slipped in, rather clumsily, a comment about "putting the turkey in the lockbox" for Thanksgiving.

After Leno spread his arms wide and said Hollywood was liberal, implying they have a lot of sway over what gets out to the audiences, he brought his hands in over to his right side and indicated a small section with his palms facing each other and what he said indicated he meant: liberals have big sway in most of the spectrum and the conservatives just have this little area where they can talk to each other.

Leno went on to say they were just talking to each other, and Leno was basically asking, 'Why are you, Al Gore, begrudging them this little slice of the media pie?' He was not expressing himself well, but that's what Leno meant.

Anybody else notice how Leno always seems to lead Al Gore into quicksand?

I think he secretly doesn't like Gore, and wants to expose him. Last time before the election, he showed Gore the picture of Clinton on the magazine cover in the "s*** my ****" posture, and Gore was furious with him for bringing up the reference to the sexual scandals of Clinton. It made a pall on the whole appearance.

This time Leno led Gore to admit he doesn't like the First Amendment and is against war with Iraq. The audience was dead silent, shocked I think, while Gore was telling them he'd give Saddam a pass and that we were losing the war on terror.

The only sound I thought I heard was of Democrat fat cats closing their checkbooks.

When I watched Gore on Letterman, he was fabulous-- relaxed, ironic, funny, and I thought his handlers had finally got the right script and made sure it was well rehearsed. BUT I realize now that was because Letterman played along with the little play, while as liberal as we think Leno is, he obviously doesn't like hypocrites and anti-Americans.

I watched a snippet of Gore on Leno and Al looked fatter, sweatier, and less comfortable than usual. Al is awkward at best and strange on average. The kind of guy you might know or work with but there is just something about him that makes you steer clear. Like somebody with really bad breath that always gets in your face to talk.
