What a hopeless dork:
I'm watching the hearings on Global Warming on C-SPAN and The Goracle is testifying. He just compared what people leading the global warming crusade to what the Spartans did in the movie "300" to save democracy !
Allah's covering the Inhofe-Goracle face-off. I'm sure Inhofe is at his grumpy best.
Another melodramatic Gore-quote:
"People will look back and wonder, 'How did they find the moral courage to rise above politics and save the cause of American democracy?'"
If only he were talking about something useful, like Social Security reform instead of CO2-capping, economy-crippling government intervention.
Update: More from the Gore hearings that you won't hear in the media:
The usual rule is that witnesses must submit their prepared remarks 48 hours before the hearing, so that the committee members may prepare questions. They suspended that rule for Gore, allowing him to submit his opening remarks 24 hours in advance.
Did he make that deadline?
Hmmm, that makes it much harder to rebut his assertions, doesn't it? What a phony.
More phony, again from Allah:
“There are hundreds of thousands of people who adore you and would follow your example by reducing their energy usage if you did. Don’t give us the run-around on carbon offsets or the gimmicks the wealthy do,” Senator Inhofe told Gore.
“Are you willing to make a commitment here today by taking this pledge to consume no more energy for use in your residence than the average American household by one year from today?” Senator Inhofe asked…
Gore refused to take the pledge.
