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.

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

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

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist
