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.

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.

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
