BOOK REVIEW:AL AND TIPPER GORE, JOINED AT THE LIPS
WWW.BSNN.NET ^ | 12-02 | Buffy Osculate

Posted on 12/02/2002 10:46:29 AM PST by KLT

Here's a book both uninteresting and repulsive. On the one hand, it is a quasi-scholarly look at kissing and how it has changed substantially in the last half century. It's also uncomfortably personal, filled with Gore stories, which are explicit and stomach churning.

"For us, as for most Americans," write the former vice-president and his wife, "kissing is our bedrock. We kiss everywhere and in every situation." Like at the recent memorial service for Senator Paul Wellstone, when the sight of Tipper dressed in black (and appearing 50 pounds lighter than she really is) was more than Al could handle. So they made out for 20 minutes inside a cloak room.

But kissing in America has changed substantially in the last half century. The types of kissing the Gores have experimented with in their decades of research reflect these changes: starting with the Cheek Kiss the Gores moved on to the French Kiss, the Foot Kiss (taught to them by Dick Morris), the Fruity Kiss (taught to them by Congressman Barney Frank), and the Lick Kiss (as instructed by Monica Lewinsky).

In this penetrating exploration of contemporary kissing, the Gores combine personal experiences with expert opinions. If nothing else, Joined at the Lip demonstrates that in a age desperate for abstinence training for our youth, nothing is as powerful a turnoff as seeing the Gores face to face, cheek to cheek, and lip to lip. This may be their greatest contribution to society, and for this they deserve the heartfelt thanks of every parent of a teenage daughter.

Tipper: Put your arms around me, baby!

Al: I'm trying, I'm trying!

Joe: How much longer do we have to do this? I feel ridiculous.

Why does this guy feel the need to constantly kiss his wife in public?

I respect people who take the gaff to run for office -- even Al Gore. Why does he feel the need to demean himself constantly? Dad's dead, Al. You've earned the right to get a life.

God help me, but I just remembered one of the very first Star Trek: Next Generation shows I ever saw.

Data (to Lt. Tasha Yar, who was all dolled up in some midriff-baring outfit): I am ... fully functional, Lieutenant.

EWWWW! Now I can't get this outta my head! Damn you, Al!

Probably for the same reason he had himself photographed in lumberjack plaid sitting in a canoe, or playing football with his children - to prove he's a manly man.

First time I've seen Lieberman and Hadasa (sp?) kissing on stage with the exhibitionist Gores. Ugh.
