Mark Levin: Al Gore's Unresolved Issues
NationalReview.Com ^ | 11/1/02 | Mark R. Levin

Posted on 11/02/2002 12:31:40 PM PST by WarSlut

Letter to Al - Advice to the former vice president (another one).

Dear Al:

According to today's Washington Post, while campaigning yesterday on behalf of Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, you "asked people whether they recalled where they were when the U.S. Supreme Court decided to discontinue counting ballots from the disputed Florida vote two years ago."

You asked rhetorically, "Are you over it?" The crowd shouted "no!" You then implored the audience to "use that feeling as a source of energy and drive and commitment. And if anyone tells you that one vote doesn't make a difference, send them to me."

Obviously, Al, you have some unresolved issues. Let's work through this together. Assume the lotus position, take a deep breath, and now begin chanting your personal mantra: "No controlling legal authority. No controlling legal authority. No controlling legal authority."

Now that you're relaxed, and your mind — such as it is — is clear, let's begin. The Florida election was not in dispute. You just refused to accept the outcome. No matter how many recounts have been taken, Al, you lost. Now, repeat after me: "I, Al Gore, am a loser. I have the personality of porch furniture and the political skills of the Marx Brothers."

O.K., very good Al. Now, you know that document called the United States Constitution, which you swore repeatedly to uphold? You were at least supposed to read it before ignoring it. And had you read it, you would come across the phrase — "the electoral college." These are the people we choose to elect our president and vice president. Obviously, they thought you were a loser, too. Even though you supposedly won the popular vote, you're required to receive a majority of the electoral-college vote. This is how you twice became vice president of the United States and, alas, in 2001, the night manager at Denny's restaurant in Memphis.

You should be careful about asking audiences if they're over the 2000 election. For many people, Al, there's not enough mouthwash in America to remove the bad taste you and your boss left behind.

Let this go, Al. All is not lost. In 30 years you, too, can run for the Senate from New Jersey. And after you meet your maker — Mattel — you can run for the Senate from Missouri.

Yours in gestalt,

Mark R. Levin

He's awfully funny, if only he could have prosecuted the impeachment. No, if only he could have sat where Rehnquist sat. V's wife.

Dear Al, I remember that day very well. I was on a cold, wet street corner on the Plaza in KC with about 250 friends showing support for Dubya. When word came the counting had been stopped we all went nuts. And you had better believe we are drawing strength from the feelings we had at that moment. And we are not over what you and the Dims tried to do then and are trying to do this election.

When I close my eyes, and savor that moment, why do I think of pressed ham? I wonder. . . :o) fsf

I dont know where I was but I felt that every moment I spent picketing his house at the Naval Observatory (in mostly cold, damp, sh...y weather was worth it. Hail to all the Freepers who were out there "Get outa Cheney's house - get outa Cheney's house". Anybody seen Karena (sp?) lately and how about 200 pound Momma Gore - it just doesnt get any better.

Yes, you Freepers at the Naval Observatory did a great job. It really injected some humor into the whole sad political situation. And the Democrats can survive just about anything but humor. It was a pivitol act. Good job! fsf

"No controlling legal authority"

It wasn't until today that it dawned on me, Gore and Clinton could be the best thing that could have happened to the 2002 elections. Hopefully they will remind people how much we don't want their leadership nor any of those endorsed by them.

We need a House and Senate landslide.

I think Gore's biggest "unresolved issue" is directly related to that night he showed up for the first debate with Bush in 2000 wearing so much makeup that he looked like a transvestite.

Actually, Al, I don't remember that precise moment, but now that you've brought the whole pathetic episode to light, I think I'll pop the cork on that bottle of champagne that's been chilling in my refrigerator for no particular reason for the past few months. Thanks for giving me a reason, AlBore.

Exactly !! With so many illegal aliens bought and paid for by democrats, Bush could have actually won the popular vote. I'm glad he makes this point.

And I too remember the scene on that cold and rainy day. We were happy to be waving our signs and getting the honks and waves (and one mooning as I recall -- typical Clymer) but the wait and suspense form the previous five weeks were draining. That was the firth Saturday for our group there...the Dems had ceased showing up...only 3 PETA girls, who were ambivalent about the election.

And then the radio announcement, and jumping in the air. People were hearing it on their car radios as well, and the honking increased. There we were, one gathering of many around the nation, and this winter it wasn't the left in the street, but the street in the street.

It can happen again, whenever needed and in an appropriate measure to the occasion.

I was also at a FReep! When we got the news I grabbed the guy next to me and started yelling. I don't even remember who it was. LOL!!

That's what you call a "well turned phrase".
