    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A sentencing hearing turned into a rally supporting an environmental activist who has become an antihero after disrupting a government auction of oil and gas leases near two national parks in Utah. Protesters gathered around the courthouse and dozens were arrested Tuesday as Tim DeChristopher launched into a lengthy address urging others fight climate change by taking similar steps of civil disobedience. But U.S. District Judge Dee Benson said there was no excuse for the 29-year-old former wilderness guide's blatant disrespect for the rule of law. Benson sentenced DeChristopher to two years in prison on...

    The following release was posted Tuesday night to the web log of Senator James Inhofe: From behind the scenes on Capitol Hill: Former Vice President Al Gore, despite being given major preferential treatment, has violated the Senate Environment & Public Works Committee?s (EPW) hearing rules. Gore first demanded to be granted an unprecedented 30 minute opening statement to the Senate EPW Committee for Wednesday?s (March 21) global warming hearing scheduled for 2:30 pm ET. The GOP minority on the EPW committee agreed to the 30 minute opening statement. But then Gore demanded a waiver of the EPW committee?s 48 hour...

    She's spent five years recovering from the last run at the White House, but Tipper Gore says she's ready if her husband wants to do it again. "If he were going to run in the future, of course I would support him," Tipper Gore told ABCNews' Claire Shipman in her first television interview in four years. "I think he'd be a fantastic president. He already got a majority of votes of people in this country once, and so that says something." Al Gore is back in the political spotlight with his new documentary on global warming, "An Inconvenient Truth," and...

    stop the presses by Eric AltermanAl, We Hardly Know Ye [from the March 1, 2004 issue]The evolution of the character invented by the media to play the role "Al Gore" will one day make a remarkable doctoral dissertation. The most doctrinaire postmodernist would have a hard time keeping up with the myriad literary inventions, textual subversions and convenient fictions necessary to sustain the ever-changing narrative. One day Gore is an uptight, hypercautious "serial exaggerator." Later, when it turns out that it was the media--most egregiously, the Washington Post's Ceci Connolly--who spread false stories about Gore that were picked up and...

    In his most humiliating setback since his failed coup attempt of 2000, Al Gore is seeing his dreams of creating yet another left-wing media outlet fall like chads from the hands of a ballot-twisting Florida Democrat recount activist. Thank Barry Diller, who despite Gore's begging is refusing to lift his veto over the sale of the News World International cable network from Vivendi Universal Entertainment, the New York Post reported today. Apparently the Democrats will have to be satisfied with NPR, PBS, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN ...

    Al Gore has charged that the Bush administration is attempting to cover-up the 9/11 investigation by dismissing the Senate Intelligence Committee. In a speech sponsored by the Communist Group Moveon.org, Gore dismissed the partisan Democrat memo advising the committee to use intelligence information for political purposes as "trivial", and accused Bush of over-reaching in his authority, in much the same way as Richard Nixon did when he fired his Chief Investigator during the Watergate scandal. It was reported here that Senator Frist disbanded the Senate Intellignce Committee after the partisan memo revealed it would be unable to carry out its...

    Rap music should be outlawed even if it takes an Act of Congress to do it. As a child of the fifties, I’m well aware of the fits that popular music caused my parents’ generation. Rock and roll was blamed for everything from teenagers’ Brylcreem ducktails to lewd dancing to juvenile delinquency. Fifties rock and roll, though, seems high art compared to what saturates the airwaves today. Back then, religious and civic leaders fulminated from pulpit and public square alike in condemning “the devil’s music.” In a famous and widely seen newsreel clip, the president of a citizens’ council from...

    The Republicans may have control of Congress, but Al Gore has control of the future. The former Democratic vice president has a guest role on Sunday's season premiere of Fox's animated sci-fi comedy "Futurama," supplying the voice of his own disembodied, scientifically preserved head. (ROFLOL !) "I think I may have a future as a disembodied head," Gore joked in an interview with The Associated Press on Friday. "I'm not sure that any political calculation would have steered me toward this part, but it was great fun doing it." "Futurama" chronicles the 30th-century life of a hapless time-traveler named Fry,...

    DAYTONA BEACH -- Former Vice President Al Gore stepped to the podium at Bethune-Cookman College on Sunday looking to supercharge fellow Democrat Bill McBride's campaign for governor. But another election, the closest and most contested in Florida and the nation's history, remained on the minds of many in the crowd of 250. Gore still gets their vote almost two years later. Under an old oak tree, supporters held signs that read: "Welcome President Gore!" and chanted: "Gore in Four." Sans his college-professor beard and most of his post-election girth, Gore tried to diffuse the lingering anger and despair. "I'm Al...

An accompanying SNL schedule shows Gore slated to appear December 14. The broadcast would likely give Gore his largest TV audience since he conceeded the presidential election exactly two years to the day from that date. Gore watchers have said that he'll make up his mind on whether he'll...
