Al Bore

I used to give Al Gore the benefit of the doubt about Afghanistan and the Taliban. I was fairly sure that Al's obeisance to transnational progressivism would have kept him from doing anything about Iraq or just about anything else, but I was fairly sure he would have done something about the Taliban.

Now, I'm not so sure:

"He betrayed this country!" Mr. Gore shouted into the microphone at a rally of Tennessee Democrats here in a stuffy hotel ballroom. "He played on our fears. He took America on an ill-conceived foreign adventure dangerous to our troops, an adventure preordained and planned before 9/11 ever took place."

This level of detachment from reality is not easily achieved. I'm not going to go into details because anybody reading this already understands how wrong this is, or else they agree with Al's Machiavellian machinations. But is it really worth the sacrifice of his integrity and the utter debasement of the body politic to win? Remember that it was the fallen angel Lucifer in John Milton's Paradise Lost who said, "Better to reign in hell, than serve in heaven." Unfortunately, this scorched earth policy seems to be the order of the day.

Seek some professional help Al.

Integrity? Al Gore? What have you been smoking? This is the same person who claims to have invented the internet, discovered global warming, and a whole list of other bogus nonsense. He doesn’t even stay bought – thereby failing Heinlein’s definition of a honest politician.

Look, man, I'm sorry about all this. I'm a nice guy once you get to know me.

Radical Islam will soon be operating under a nuclear umbrella thanks to our feckless foreign policy. The one who has taken even modest steps against this is the one Al Gore is accusing of treason. I don't have to be Republican to know that Gore is an evasive prick. We owe Thanks to Ralph Nader for stopping him in 2000...
