The right wing blogosphere and talk radio is celebrating the news of the separation of former Vice President Al Gore from his wife of 40 years, Tipper. I find nothing funny or political about this. I find it sad. After 40 years together, the Gores are splitting up. I would hope that the wingnut glee about this fades fast.
Although I have no use for the flip-flopping, internet inventing, pseudo-science spouting Al Gore, this is indeed not something to be celebrating or feeling gleeful in its regards.
Those that are doing so should be ashamed. On this account I do feel sorry for the couple and sincerely wish them both the best in this difficult situation.
Of course, he never said he invented the internet and he is 100% right about global warming, but hey let's not get political on this one.
Oh, and he won the 2000 election. No question about it.
The name Tipper is a bit silly though...
Can't really argue with that.
Dave, saying Gore won the 2000 election is about as credible as the birther movement's claims.
Considering it's undisputed that he won the popular vote by more than 500,000, and that every single non-partisan analysis of Florida showed a Gore victory, I find your comparison baseless.
The only thing similar to the birther claim, in terms of ridiculousness, are the 9/11 "truthers."
It is NOT the popular vote that determines the outcome of elections, as you surely know. It is the electoral college, and the recount for Miami-Dade and Broward counties where the diputes were challenged did full recounts and the determination was that Bush won.
The Democrats then wanted to go back and re-count multiple times there again and in other non-contested counties until they could get the necessary votes manufactured for Gore.
It is precisely this kind of illegal and partisan tactic that gives us undeserving senators like the ass, Al Franken.
The US Supreme Court made Florida follow its own state law on the issue. I guess it shouldn't suprise me that liberals are upset that the law goes against their agenda and wish to ignore it.
Except the Supreme Court decided the outcome of the case before they even heard the arguments. It was the most political decision in US history. Hell, in the decision, the majority wrote that this case should not be used as a precedent in the future. Kind of a dead giveaway as to the biased nature of the decision.
It's water under the bridge now, but if the Court had decided correctly, the recount had continued, and Gore won...the right never would have been as gracious as Gore was. That is a real example of putting country first.
