The Many Faces of Al Gore

As this piece points out, Al Gore is deathly afraid of the marketplace of ideas and of competing viewpoints.

Well, maybe he's right to be afraid of competing viewpoints, especially when he's subscribed to both sides of a particular topic. Exhibit A is, of course, his 1992 speech on Iraq, where he condemns President George H.W. Bush for not having intervened there, and offers as sweeping a denunciation of Saddam's regime as President George W. Bush ever has. That's a far cry, certainly, from his current critique of President GW Bush and the war in Iraq.

It's tempting to wonder: Will Al Gore be leading the environmentalist scaremongers in a sweeping crusade against global cooling by 2022?

But, but, but...Bush lied, didn't he?

It's absolutely incredible to me what a bonehead this guy is. Rush Limbaugh ran wild just playing clips of the Goracle ranting on both sides of issues. Doesn't this buffoon get it, that his comments are recorded and accessible more than ever, especially thanks to his invention, the internet? And DiCaprio thinks he's a genius!
