The Arab News, in its piece reported by Hasan Hatrash, showed Gore playing domestic American politics:
“[Gore] said he and his Democratic Party colleagues have opposed illegal detention of Arabs in the United States.”
I have one thing to say about this: Thank God for those 537 Floridians who decided to go out and vote in 2000.
As President, Al Gore would have been so weak, he would have made Jimmy Carter look like Yosemite Sam.
I got an e-mail asking if I would like to do a segment on CBS about Democrats who are calling for Dick Cheney to resign. I was on a plane between Saudi Arabia and France but if I could have, I would have gone on and asked, “Which do you think is more appropriate: Dick Cheney resigning his office for a hunting accident; or Al Gore resigning his citizenship for appalling unfaithfulness to his country?”
Note, please, how the press has covered Dick Cheney’s accidental misfire; and how they have NOT covered Al Gore’s intentional ambush of the United States.
The national political press constantly laments the state of news coverage as driven by the Internet and cable news programs. Here, however, is a clear case of a public official – one who may well be a candidate for President in 2008 – trashing his own nation for petro-dollars, and whose remarks have gone unnoticed and unchallenged by the main-stream media.
They are more interested in chasing down the story of the missing $7 quail-hunting stamp, than asking Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton or John Kerry or any other senior Democrat whether they support (a) what Al Gore said and (b) whether they support his saying it where and when he did.
On a the Secret Decoder Ring page today: A link to the Riyadh Travelogue for those who missed it … again; A link to Jim Krane’s report on the second dumbest person at the Jeddah conference, Al Gore; a Mullfoto of Gore which will excite you if you are into Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade floats, a bonus death-defying Mullfoto, and a Catchy Caption of the day.
