    As most of you will read this first thing in the morning, I not only suggest you not have a coffee cup near your computer, but also highly recommend that you remove all fragile objects from the room.Yes, this is that hysterical, for Wednesday evening, comedian and faux-scientist Al Gore was Jon Stewart’s guest on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” In reality, this was the perfect venue for Dr. Gore to discuss his absurd ideas if you think about it, for as the subject was Gore’s new romantic comedy, “An Inconvenient Truth,” the yucks were aplenty.As this was a long...

    At 4:15am EST a strange thing happened on the Internet. Two Freepers were posting pictures and communicating with each other, one in Spain and the other in Florida. Suddenly all logos and pictures filed to appear on the separate sites although the text did. Up to that time the refresh time was two to three seconds. A single server going down or a photographic site disabled is common and would not be a cause for concern. But when servers in two different countries are affected at precisely the same time with only graphics involved then we have a very unusual...

    The only "Saturday Night Live" material Al Gore vetoed during read-throughs as too embarrassing was a sketch about flatulence. "I'm sure this is funny," Mr. Gore said, according to Al Franken, a "Saturday Night Live" alumnus who has written speeches for the former vice president and helped shape tonight's show. "But at the end of this I want to have some bread crumbs leading back to my dignity." The former vice president has still not revealed what else he expects at the end of his epic monthlong television blitz — a book promotion whirl that has not helped sell two...

    EATONVILLE, Fla. - Former Vice President Al Gore on Sunday urged black voters "to walk through fire" to cast their ballots, testifying to his experience during the Florida recount of 2000. "If anybody ever tells you that one vote doesn't make a difference, ask them to come talk to me," said Gore, who two years ago lost the presidential election to George W. Bush in part because of the electoral debacle in Florida. That line, repeated at three Orlando-area black churches, was met every time with applause and cries of approval. Democrats have long regarded black voters as a crucial...

    Former vice president Al Gore yesterday urged Maryland Democrats to remember the outrage they felt over the results of the 2000 presidential election and channel it to bring voters to the polls in the tight gubernatorial race. Appearing with Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend at a boisterous rally at Bowie State University, Gore 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. Dozens of hands shot up. "Are you over it?" Gore asked, to which the crowd shouted that it was not. "Use...

    Ex-vice president gets college crowd behind him during Valley visit. BETHLEHEM TWP. PA-- Republicans have completely mismanaged the American economy since George W. Bush became president almost two years ago, former Vice President Al Gore charged during a stump speech Thursday at Northampton Community College. "If you compare what's happened today to what was happening during the Clinton-Gore years, the turnaround has been so dramatic and taken us so far down, there has not been such catastrophic mismanagement of America's economy since the presidency of Herbert Hoover," Gore said during a half-hour speech. Hoover was president when the Great Depression...

Gore called for a short-term stimulus program that would include extended unemployment benefits and help for small businesses "to jolt the U.S. economy out of stagnation." He warned against waiting until Congress returns next year to consider economic steps because "in the interim,...

    NASHVILLE - Al Gore is making a splash on the national scene with his criticism of President Bush's move toward war in Iraq. The former vice president also has been a welcome Democratic fund-raiser in 2002 elections around the nation, but back home in Tennessee, he's not much of a factor in key races for the U.S. Senate and governor - except as an example of what not to do. Some think he could be hurting his chances should he decide to run for president again. "It's still shocking to people how a guy whose father represented the state and...

I’m speaking today in an effort to recommend a specific course of action for our country which I believe would be preferable to the course recommended by President Bush. Specifically, I...

    <p>SAN FRANCISCO (AP) --  Al Gore harshly criticized President Bush's push for war against Iraq, saying Monday that it weakens America's effort to combat terrorism and forever could damage the nation's standing in the world.</p> <p>"After Sept. 11, we had enormous sympathy, goodwill and support around the world," Gore said. "We've squandered that, and in one year we've replaced that with fear, anxiety and uncertainty, not at what the terrorists are going to do but at what we are going to do."</p>

    Al Gore. State election officials ultimately declared George W. Bush the winner by a margin of 537 votes, but during and after the election dispute, questions remained about the uncounted ballots of 175,010 voters, ballots that had been rejected by error-prone tabulating machines employed in many Florida counties. Confusion and conflict, much of it generated by partisan intrigue, prevented these ballots from being counted during the election controversy. However, in 2001 every uncounted ballot was carefully examined in a scientific study by the University of Chicago, which concluded that when all the votes were counted, more votes had been cast...
