Al Gore’s disastrous book tour:
a breath of fresh air

Daily Caller, by Timothy Philen

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/5/2013 6:08:10 AM

There has always been something strangely fascinating to me about Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. Maybe it’s those stern Superman looks that make him seem resentful that we woke him up to save Gotham. Or the Jekyll and Hyde lector-hector duality in his persona. Perhaps it’s his improbable ascendancy to Nobel Laureate through less-than-fastidious science. Or the breathtaking hypocrisy of his personal carbon footprint. Maybe it’s just the alleged release of his second chakra in a Portland hotel room. Whatever it is, and whatever quirks and contradictions I’ve observed, nothing prepared me for the rogue wave of hubris that crashed

The fact that popular figures in the media and in the pop culture are just now figuring out that Al Gore is a pompous fraud tells you more about them than it dies about Gore.

The Louisville Zoo has the most delightful polar and grizzly bear exhibit which opened in the last three years. The exhibit is run by man-made global warming enthusiasts. If you try to speak to these docents about the actual polar bear population in the world, they are adamant the polar bears population is diminishing and it is the fault of man and carbon dioxide.

I describe these volunteers as gray-headed, aging hippies still searching for a cause to change the world. Very frustrating to try to hold a conversation with...similar to the implacable and hypocritical Al Gore.

Honestly, Al Gore is so wonderful. I simply don´t understand why the Democratic Party doesn´t put him front and center on all future PR campaigns.

Yes, seriously! They could get one of those skyhook cranes to hoist him out of his mega mansion, carry his bloated carcas to the nearest television studio, drop him into a reinforced swivel chair, titillate his chakra, wait for his gas attack to pass, then allow him to hold forth and enlighten all us heathens.

Is there a word large enough to encompass the level of hypocrisy Algore has achieved? "Stratospheric", maybe? Is there a word descriptive enough to communicate the depths of his lies, his denials, his delusions? Honestly, the man is insane. It´s really the only explanation.

Unfortunately it just hasn´t dawned yet on the LoFos how downright stupid and fraudulent this guy is. Their eyes glaze over when I point out he flunked out of divinity school. Perhaps that´s why he can´t help fudging the facts.

How about ´´Shakespearean´´, #4? Or perhaps something from Greek mythology?

Perhaps even Biblical.... pride goeth before the fall perhaps?

Personally, I like BLOWHARD. That one word just encompasses so much of AlGork, from girth to philosophy.

I remember when the hipsters sneered at Algore. He was the ultimate in dull, boring and just plain blergh. Then he discovered global warming. All of a sudden, the once boring Algore was a sage. A wizard. A prophet and the hipsters loved him and showered him with honors and largesse.

Now it looks as though the emperor has no clothes, and the hipsters may be on the verge of turning against Gore. I can only hope.

Pompous Al - more than any other individual on the planet - bears responsibility for the insanity of ´carbon costs´ being levied on hapless citizens of the world - even as more and more *real* science bears out the absolute farcical nature of his ´catastrophic predictions´...

When the one-man-tub-of-lard keels over from a massive heart attack - likely setting cholesterol records for adult Americans...

His ´estate´ should be liquidated to defray the costs of his fraudulent life.

First he ´used to be the next president´...then he just fell into ´used to be a credible human´ territory. The fact that he´s given *any* press at all now is gratifying only in the ability if offers to mock him.

The Southern Spotted Owlbert was once my rep. to US Congress. At a public forum I saw people laugh and point when he came to the stage. I could never figure out how he kept winning. When he told the sad story of how he held his dying sisters hand, I knew he had no shame. Knoxville paper proved that at the very time sister Gore passed, Owlbert was making a speech st the Knoxville Civitan Club. A distance of of some 200 mile from her Nahville hospital. And no one in attendance could remember his mentioning that he had a dying sister. W´s accomplishments are too few, but he did keep Owlbert out of the White House.

Al has a score to settle for not being handed the presidency after the 2000 election. What better way to show one´s donkey than wahooo, "you screwed me now just see how crazy I can be! Me, me hey! look over here! I´m nuts!". ie Tipper had enough. It reminds of how Bob Barr of Georgia, supposedly conservative, lost an election and then went and joined the ACLU as a consulting attorney.

Al thinks he is a new version of Chrisopher Columbus. He assures us there is something "over there" but most aren´t buying it. Two of his three ships have sunk and the third is taking on water and listing.

When one is taking flak from different camps for different reasons, the image is going down in flames like the Hindenberg.

If you want to win an argument with a liberal family member, etc over global warming quickly, just mention the cache of emails discovered where scientists were caught rigging data their way, or the fact Charles Manson believes in global warming.

When the dumb blonde of journalists, Matt Lauer, isn´t buying your act anymore you are in heap big trouble, as El Rushbo would say. Same goes for that airhead Letterman.

I saw speculation at the time of the Gore´s separation that it was to protect their assets.

I used to think he was still on the decent side of politics until he became Clinton´s VP and got exposed to an incurable mental virus that became full blown when he finally lost the Presidency.

actually, of all his personae, his hubristic one always seemed his most obvious, not his least obvious, persona. Go and actually watch his speech accepting the nomination for VP in 1992 (don´t read the transcript, this part is a bit cleaned up in the transcript). Gore actually said that when his son was fighting for his life after an accident, that while many were praying, God only heard his (that is Gore´s) prayers and that is why God saved his son. As if Gore himself was Christ or somehow more beloved of God than anyone else in the world. That is beyond the typical insane arrogance of the politician.

#16, at least Larry Flynt produced an actual product people wanted to buy, even if it was an indecent product.

Algore has never produced anything but hot air. I laugh when thinking how he managed to con people into believing he was the honest and decent half of the Clinton/Gore administration. Those two were made for each other.

acquaintance what a total sleazebag this worthless lying blowhard is.

That "friend" has not brought up algwhorezero nor GloBull Whore-ming since this oil money deal became news.
Can we guess why?

Not only was algwhorezero booted from Vanderbilt Divinity School, he was a
pathetically bad student at Harvard before that. He has zero scientific credentials.

And perhaps even worse, he and his family made a reported half million dollars on a
strip-mine operation in Tennessee that left a massive pie-hole scar on the land.
That Earth Pie-Hole is algwhorezero´s true legacy. He´s still eatin´ Eskimo Pies and guzzling Cokes with polar bears to this day.

The righteous indignation burns a little brighter on this side of the Atlantic than it does in Europe and beyond — the United States, per Fitzgerald, “having about it still that quality of the idea.” Forged in revolution, informed by soaring sentiment, and defined by acts of variously prudent dissidence, Americans of all sorts fancy themselves to be fighting the good fight.

WASHINGTON — The case of Farrah Fawcett’s missing portrait is getting a redo. The University of Texas is appealing a Los Angeles Superior Court jury verdict from December that an iconic portrait of the late actress by Andy Warhol belongs to her on-again off-again lover, actor Ryan O’Neal. Fawcett was 62 when she died of cancer in 2009 and she bequeathed all her artwork, including her own creations, to the University of Texas at Austin, where she studied art in the1960s. O’Neal, however, took the painting from her Wilshire Boulevard condo after she died and has maintained that it was always his _

Obama program aims to reduce

President Barack Obama is attempting to lower the rate of “births” — and separately, pregnancies — among blacks and Latinos. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists reducing “births” as one of the top goals of Obama’s “Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative.” The language on the CDC’s website makes clear that the program seeks to reduce the rate of both pregnancies and “births” among minorities. Specifically, the CDC says the “purpose of this program is to demonstrate the effectiveness of innovative, multicomponent, communitywide initiatives in reducing rates of teen pregnancy and births in communities with the highest rates, with a focus on reaching

Tax day is here—and some people will pay more this year because of Obamacare. The law´s biggest tax provision—billions of dollars in tax credits to help people cover the cost of their premiums—is already in effect, but doesn´t affect the taxes due on Tuesday. A handful of smaller provisions, mostly affecting wealthy households, will show up for the first time in this year´s filing. Among this year´s changes: a 0.9 percent increase in Medicare taxes and a 3.8 percent surtax on investment income. Both are limited to high-income taxpayers, and both took effect for the first time in the tax season that

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can
