He has a simple excuse. He's not used to all this public
stuff. It's so much easier when you use your own plane.

I agree that is a breach of security. If your average Joe has to go through security why can't Mr. Global Warming.

Maybe he purchased "security credits" from people who will agree to be searched twice when they travel

The rules are for us peasants, not for our betters, such as: former Vice President Albert "Multiple Mansions" Gore, Arrianna "Zsa Zsa" Huffington, Speaker Nancy "Gimme a 757" Pelosi, Congressman Jack "ABSCAM" Murtha, Senator John "Keating Five" McCain, and assorted others...

Apparently Al Gore has gotten over his Bill Clinton envy by becoming the next generation's Jimmy Carter.

He's a HUMANITARIAN--he doesn't get treated like "little people"!

Democrats are above the law, especially laws passed by the Bush administration.

Gore's conduct reminds of Bill Clinton, a man also above the law.

Pookie got into trouble for a cartoon with a "bad" word in it.

I don't know all the details, but one Freeper mentioned that we at FR might see Pookie back pretty soon.

I hope so!!

That employee could possibly be fined $10K for each swipe at the minimum if I am not mistaken.

If had been anyone else but Gore she swiped, the airline would fire her I think.

The hipocracy never stops!...

It's the ultimate faith of the feckless rich, where a ticket to heaven can be bought with a cheque made out to Al Gore. No further sacrifice required.
