Some people have no shame, tact, nor humility. Case in point: former Vice President Al Gore, now flacking his new "documentary" on Global Warming. As proof that his views on the topic are well-supported, Al cited the reception he received at a Grover Norquist-sponsored breakfast in D.C. in January. Mr. Gore claims his speech at the breakfast was met with widespread praise; in describing the event to Variety, the former VP said D.C. conservatives pratically stood up and cheered, saying "You're absolutely right."
Not so fast, Al. Even the Washington Post found those claims a little fishy, and did some checking. Turns out that Mr. Gore's reception at the breakfast wasn't quite as warm as reported. While response to his speech was polite, when it was over, exactly one--that's right, one--attendee approached the former VP and showered him with praise. Quite a difference between the "truth" and Al's distorted version of the event. About what we'd expect from the man "who invented the internet."
I think he has truly gone insane. You would think the man would learn from his past mishaps. I can't even imagine how ridiculous his movie "An Inconvenient Truth" will be. I think I will wait until there is a free copy at the library to view for comedic entertainment.
I can't take seriously a movie entitled "An Inconvenient Truth" made by someone who always conveniently misconstrues the truth, such as his comments about converting the conservatives at a breakfast!
The only inconvenient truth is that Al is irrelevant. His 15 minutes are up but, like Tanya Harding trying boxing, he's making a career change by morphing into Chicken Little to extend his time on stage. Enough, Al, please, no one's listening to you. And that's the truth.
Haha, I never would've thought I'd hear Al Gore compared to Tonya Harding, but how true! After so many ridiculous statements, you'd think this guy would just give up. Instead, he's going to tell us all the world is ending in this new movie...and expect us to believe him again!
