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.

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 _

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

United States Senate candidate and state senator Joni Ernst has cited her National Guard duty to rebuff criticism for missing more than half of the votes in the Iowa Senate this year. In a WHO-TV interview posted on April 7, the Red Oak Republican acknowledged that National Guard service wasn’t the only reason she’s missed votes, but she said that only “a few of those votes were due to other activities.” However, a review by The Gazette shows very little overlap between Iowa Senate votes and her National Guard service. Ernst is in a field of six candidates vying to win the Republican

Let HHS nominee Sylvia Burwell

Senate Democrats have been desperately trying to move the national conversation away from Obamacare to just about anything else before the midterm elections — “paycheck fairness,” the minimum wage, even the Koch brothers. But President Obama’s choice of Sylvia Burwell to replace Kathleen Sebelius as secretary of Health and Human Services thrusts Obamacare right back into the national spotlight — and with it Obama’s false promise that “if you like your health-care plan, you can keep your health-care plan.” The agency Burwell heads, the Office of Management and Budget, is responsible for the president’s budget. But OMB also has another, lesser-known

This week, President Obama has tried to rev up his base by flogging an obviously false statistic. It hasn’t gone as well as planned, partly because the media dropped its usual obsequiousness by questioning the assumptions of the claim that women make 77 cents for each dollar earned by men for the same work. Turns out that when you control for different career choices, different hours worked, different amounts of time on the job, the supposed pay gap all but evaporates. It also turns out that the White House has a significant pay gap — they claim it’s for the same reasons

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

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

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
