  • Al Gore Becomes a Priest, Says He Will Build an Ark

    The Daily Rash ^ | unknown | Mark Donahue
    WASHINGTON – During an appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, Al Gore revealed that prior to divorcing his wife Tipper, he was ordained a Catholic priest. He added that he plans to spend the rest of his life listening to confessions “before the impending global warming apocalypse kills everyone on the planet.” A surprised Chris Matthews asked the former vice president why he chose the priesthood. “I can’t really explain why,” Gore replied. “I guess a big part of it is that I really love wearing the priest suit and listening to people tell me their secrets. I first...

(Joe Kohen/Getty; Jon Clark/Rancho Santa Fe Review) It’s never easy to re-enter the dating pool after years away — probably especially so if you’re one of the most famous men in the world. But things seem to have worked out for Al Gore. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate and former VP has a serious girlfriend, we’ve learned.

    Why hasn't Tipper defended Al Gore? She could say something about them growing apart but "he's still a good man." She could say that though they have gone their separate ways he's "still a man of honor." Instead she is noticeably silent in the face of damning accusations. The media fails to say anything about this. Gee I wonder way.

He’s reportedly been global warming on the side with fellow eco-evangelist Laurie David, a producer on his we-are-doomed documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.” She also is the ex-wife of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David, who repeatedly ridiculed her beloved cause on and off his HBO hit show. “After the divorce I went home and turned all the lights on,” said Larry after his split with Laurie. After his split with Tipper, Al went home and turned all the lights off. Then...

    Al Gore's 40-year marriage crumbled because of his wife's jealous rages that he was allegedly having an affair, it was claimed tonight. The former US presidential candidate separated from Tipper because she suspected he was sleeping with a string of glamorous women. Rather than her ending the relationship as previously thought, it was he who brought things to an end, according to U.S. reports. 'Jealous rages': Al Gore with wife Tipper in 2007.

The tabloid spoke to numerous sources who said that Tipper Gore constantly thought that Al Gore was having affairs, which had a negative affect on their relationship. “While there’s never been proof that Al had affairs, Tipper allowed herself to suspect the worse,” an insider revealed. “I think she’s always believed there was something going on between Al and many of the women in his life.” The 62-year-old...

    Good news! Even though George W.

No kidding, they’re even holding him responsible for the announced divorce between former vice-president turned global warming warrior Al Gore and his wife Tipper. I know what you’re thinking, “that doesn’t make sense! How in the world can Bush, who has nothing whatsoever to do with the Gores, be responsible? Did he seduce Tipper, or something?” Why, no: On Tuesday’s CBS Evening News,...

    You can thank me (or throw eggs at me), not the miscounting in Florida, for Al Gore not being the president of the United States. You see, Tennessee did not vote for its favorite son in 2000. I was a voter in Tennessee in 2000. Had Gore been able to carry the state that knew him best, there would have been no need for recounts in Florida. Throughout the three weeks of recounting, the media descended upon Florida. No one came to Tennessee to ask us why we had not voted for our own former U.S. Senator. We did not...

    Live Earth has been branded a foul-mouthed flop. Organisers of the global music concert - punctuated by swearing from presenters and performers - had predicted massive viewing figures. But BBC's live afternoon television coverage attracted an average British audience of just 900,000. In the evening, when coverage switched from BBC2 to BBC1, the figure rose to just 2.7million. And the peak audience, which came when Madonna sang at Wembley, was a dismal 4.5million. Three times as many viewers saw the Princess Diana tribute on the same channel six days before. Two years ago, Live 8 drew a peak television audience...

The event, scheduled for July 7, will feature co-ordinated film, music and television events in seven cities including London, Washington DC, Shanghai, Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town and Kyoto, with major broadcasters and media owners aiming to extend the reach of public awareness of global warming.

    CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- Teens whose iPods are full of music with raunchy, sexual lyrics start having sex sooner than those who prefer other songs, a study found. Whether it's hip-hop, rap, pop or rock, much of popular music aimed at teens contains sexual overtones. Its influence on their behavior appears to depend on how the sex is portrayed, researchers found. Songs depicting men as "sex-driven studs," women as sex objects and with explicit references to sex acts are more likely to trigger early sexual behavior than those where sexual references are more veiled and relationships appear more committed, the...

    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...

Acting voluntarily, BMG plans to place new advisory stickers on certain albums, specifying whether they have violent content, sexual content, strong language or some combination of the three, officials say. BMG plans to include the more-detailed warnings in advertising, including television, radio, print and...
