Friday funny bonus: Gore Graph Jam

Kate at smalldeadanimals.com sends her regards with this graph:

gore_climate_graph.jpg

This is primo Graph Jam material.

In other news, it now appears that Mr. Gore had a triple play.

Normally I wouldn’t link to the National Enquirer, but they seem to have a good track record of being right on such things. Dirt is their #1 business. For example, they were right about presidential candidate John Edwards scandal, while the rest of the MSM ignored it. Even CNN admits as much.

My Father had some news happen to him in the past and let the local news guys interview him but he would not talk to the National Enquirer. The local guys screwed up the story and misquoted my dad. The National Enquirer without ever getting an interview with my dad did a little research and in the end had the most accurate story.

Since the release of CRU emails, the emails from JournoList showing the vast left-wing conspiracy among the liberal media to help the Obama campaign, from covering up and not reporting Obama’s relationship with Jeremiah Wright to smearing Sarah Palin………

Years ago I wrote a roulette money management system. One of the outlets I wanted to advertise in was the Enquirer. Due to the title of the piece, “Bruno’s Revenge” I was not allowed to run an ad. Their explanation was that the word “revenge” was among a list of words not allowed in their publication, it was against their standards. My outraged response was: “Are you kidding me, you’re the Enquirer, you don’t have standards!” And even though it was a title of a copyrighted piece they would not run the ad.

How can you have negative sex-crazed poodle allegations (or crazed sex-poodle allegations)? I think this graph needs to display error bars before someone find himself behind bars for his errors.

Don’t you think it represents a sad state of affairs when the National Enquirer represents the best of investigative journalism in America? They broke the John Edwards story and the Gore sexual assault story.
In fact, they report that two more women have come forward with similar complaints against Gore. A tipping point perhaps?

The National Enquirer should have said:

Al Gore is a true warmist with his six fireplaces!!! Yet he calls co2 a toxic gas!!!

They are individually much smaller, but in numbers there is power. Fat Albert is so fat he couldn’t fly away, he had to run!

Chakraquiddick works for me -LOL .
As for the National Inquirer ? I can say that I’ve never read it , except for the headlines that one sees in magazine racks . However , one of my anthrpology profs who was involved in the investigations of cattle mutilations in Colorado during the mid 70’s swore by it . Apparently the NI had interviewed him several times and had reconfirmed his statements before they published .
As a caveat , I must add that he refused to divulge anything juicy – aliens ? weird cultists ? – to his students on the grounds that he was doing “Secret Government Work”.

.Apple Computer named former Vice President Al Gore to its board of directors.

Former Vice President Al Gore is Vice Chairman of Metropolitan West Financial, LLC,

Since alGore is on so many boards, how does he find time for broads?
At some point, these companies will think having his name around is a little icky.

I think it’s sad that the majority of Americans get their news from tabloids. Or at least I read that somewhere last year.
Maybe WUWT needs a print version by the checkout counters, or next to those big salon bowls women put over their heads. 😉

“AGW” (ALGOREWARMING) is true!?! What is happening? They MUST be putting something in the Water Supply (or maybe it’s already there and can’t get it out). In 2006 – Portland! In 2007 – Hollywood? And in 2008 – Japan? I just know that there’s MORE of this to come. I can feel it in my toes. Tipper wouldn’t have dumped Albert over something just this vile and loathsome. There’s more, this is 2010. And, I have a feeling it’s going to be really bad. Really, really, really bad. Tisk… tisk… tisk…
Do you think the President will give him a pardon?

Well. Interesting that I can’t follow any of the National Enquirer’s links (“not available in your area” says the screen.) Perhaps a function of how easy and lucrative it is (if you are very very rich) to sue for libel in the UK Courts?

Now, personally, I don’t care what these characters get up to in their spare time, although it is a bit rich when they then stand on an electoral platform of promoting marriage and the importance of family values.
But do you think that this is a so-far unidentified problem of mankind’s CO2 emissions?

Gore probably wouldn’t be happy to see attendees at his soirees wearing poodle skirts and/or barking at him. Here’s a link to a picture of such a skirt, which most of you whippersnappers under 50 have never seen “in the flesh”:
Huge URL.
The site also sells cat’s-eye glasses, saddle shoes, and cinch belts, for those who’d like a complete Retro look. (Say, poodle skirts could become a secret-handshake way for female climate contrarians identify themselves to other disbelievers. It’s so absurd it makes sense. Sorta.)

“I just know that there’s MORE of this to come. I can feel it in my toes. Tipper wouldn’t have dumped Albert over something just this vile and loathsome.”
Unless there’s strong new evidence that we haven’t seen yet, if Gore is put on trial, he’ll be acquitted. Why? The accuser failed to fully cooperate with the police way back in 2006. If I were a juror, that fact would raise reasonable doubt in my mind.
What about the other two independent accusers? Isn’t that par for the course in high-profile cases. If there are any attorneys following this thread, please enlighten me: Would the judge in Case #1 allow testimony from accusers in Cases 2 and 3, who weren’t actually there to witness alleged Crime #1?
Pascvaks’ skepticism is warranted. I think that the Gores’ recent actions are all about preserving the family fortune. The fact that the recent allegations distract attention from the Gores’ recent financial moves strikes me as being too convenient. And yes, I classify the divorce as a financial maneuver.

That’s wrong – you don’t release chakra – a chakra is a an energy focal point wiuthin the body. You don’t release anything except for maybe man juice but you do cause chi to move through the chakras more fluidly – so the graph is a bit of a joke and should be changed asap before it’s a laughing stock.

_______________________________________
Yes I agree. I am sure Gore and Tipper can see the handwriting on the wall. I think what we are seeing is a delaying action on the part of the top money makers as the rush to shelter their ill-gotten gains from the people they have fleeced so far. Why else do you think museums are selling Gore’s carbon credits to school kids at scam prices?
I find it very interesting that “global cooling” was a topic on the agenda at the Bilderberg Meeting.
So I guess the next scam in the making is “CAGC’ except I can’t figure out how they are going to blame mankind for Catastrophic Cooling so they have an excuse to taxes to death.
I am sure they will think of something.

July 25, 2010 10:57 pm

Understandably, I haven’t seen the name of Gore’s accuser in the press. Here’s a suggestion for a moniker: Inconvenient Ruth!
