Al Gore: “climate deniers are … similar to all of those … law … officers in Uvalde, Texas”

Essay by Eric Worrall

I cannot imagine what must be going through the minds of Uvalde parents, teachers, survivors and responders, as they watch former Vice President Al Gore use their pain as a green political prop.

Al Gore compares ‘climate deniers’ to Uvalde police officers

“They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots, and nobody stepped forward,” he said of law enforcement at the Texas school shooting.

Former Vice President Al Gore compared “climate deniers” to those law enforcement officials who waited more than an hour to attack the gunman in Uvalde, Texas, who killed 21 students and teachers.

“You know, the climate deniers are really in some ways similar to all of those almost 400 law enforcement officers in Uvalde, Texas, who were waiting outside an unlocked door while the children were being massacred,” he said in an interview with host Chuck Todd to air Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “They heard the screams, they heard the gunshots, and nobody stepped forward.”

He added about that May shooting: “And God bless those families who’ve suffered so much. And law enforcement officials tell us that’s not typical of what law enforcement usually does. And confronted with this global emergency, what we’re doing with our inaction and failing to walk through the door and stop the killing is not typical of what we are capable of as human beings. We do have the solutions.”

Al Gore, who made a hundred million selling his TV station to foreign oil, predicted arctic ice would be gone by 2016, has a gigantic mansion size carbon footprint, and had a court ruling against his documentary film “An Inconvenient Truth” over its political bias, has spent much of his life trying to convince ordinary people to accept cuts to their lifestyle.

Al Gore only has himself to blame if people seem increasingly reluctant to listen to his climate rants. Apart from his personal energy extravagance, Gore has made some embarrassing public mistakes over the years when it comes to science. Even Politifact agrees Al Gore got his polar ice prediction wrong. And yes, Al Gore really did say the Earth’s interior temperature is “millions of degrees”, while spruiking geothermal energy.

If Al Gore wants people to take his climate claims seriously, he should make an effort to get the science right, instead of trivialising the pain of the recently bereaved.

Algore is not responsible for what he says because he is stupid, and even flunked out of Seminary College. However, the police that stood around in Uvalde deserve to be castigated.

In cases with possible mass shooters, it’s standard training to act quickly as the longer you
wait, the higher the casualty rate will be. It’s a bad situation where you do what
you can. If for some reason there are “friendly” losses, it will be analyzed in reports & new/better procedures/systems will be put into place to address this. Unfortunately, life’s live & learn.

Yes, Prjindigo. I, as a decorated and wounded combat veteran, would have risked it. The risk of my killing a kid would have been far less of a risk than the active shooter killing more kids. The outcome supports my position.

Thanks for the sentiment, Ron. When responding to those expressing the same sentiment I say: Thank you, but I was drafted.

Part of our combat training included attacking into an an enemy’s ambush rather than staying in the kill zone. When I was part of ambush patrols, the main mistake the enemy made was to get down and try to slug it out.

You poor REMFs (rear echelon mother f##kers): No ice cream truck for a week. Lo siento. One of the few times I made it to Tan Son Nhut Air Base near Saigon (Were you stationed there or IV Corps at Binh Thuy?), four of us armed GIs stopped an ice cream truck in the middle of the base roadway and forced it to stay there until we had eaten our full.

Yup, Ron, Gore failed 5 of 8 courses ay Vanderbilt’s divinity school. He later dropped out of Vanderbilt’s law school to become a politician so that he could go on to enact laws. Go figure. Ultimately, he ran for the Presidency of the U.S. and failed at that, too.

I still can’t figure out why anything he says is considered newsworthy by the mainstream media. He’s a failure and anti-American.

What he did manage to develop expertise in as Bill Clinton’s VP was the “trick” of telling different stories about the same matter to different regions of the electorate at the same time, and how to duchess the media to provide cover.

It’s all related in Christopher Hitchens’ book “Nobody Left To Lie To”.

OTOH, Various courts have come out, particularly the Wisconsin State Supreme Court, and concluded that the election was stolen at least to the scope of what their jurisdiction applies. (they don’t speak to other states, only to where the evidence was provided)

Poor poor little Simon. The fact that the cases were dismissed and not lost, was my point. Now the question becomes, why were they dismissed. Every single one of them was dismissed because the either the court felt they lacked jurisdiction, or because since the election was over, the case was moot.

Not a single case has been decided based on evidence.

As to your inability to count to one, I’m only surprised that you are willing to admit it.

Thank you for your permission;

Al Gore is now, and always has been a piece of shit. He was a fairly honest piece of shit. His only moral failing being a Democrat, and going for repeated massages with happy endings (which eventually caused his divorce); right up until that fateful day when he came upon Bill and Vernon Jordan whispering and almost giggling.

“Hi Al”, says Bill, slapping Al on the back,”Have a cigar.”

Al took the cigar, he finally felt like one of the ‘in’ gang. The laughing continued as he walked away, but he felt he was part of it & not the butt of it.

Three weeks later he realized why the cigar wrapping was a bit odd, a bit crusty.

He also realized he was always going to be the butt of all jokes, all the time. He said “screw it” and went over to the dark side, conniving and cheating his way into the CAGW payoffs.

You Simon, like Al, are the butt of all jokes. But you handle it differently than Al. You come here so you can rationalize the way people think of you.

It is sad. You should go somewhere else and try to find a friend. Don’t give up.

There seems to also be an all out push to suggest we are experiencing record high temperatures. But there will always be new records at one locality but not in nearby regions. Thus a more honest look at record high temperatures would be to look at reecords for each state.

Of the 52 record high temperatures in the USA’s states (plus Puerto Rico and DC) 32 record highs were set between 1911 and 1937.

Back in 2007 when Al’s sci-fi “Inconvenient Truth” was in the news I did something similar with my little spot on the globes daily record highs and lows.
For years before then I’d turn on The Weather Channel before I went to work.(That was before it became The Storm Channel in its coverage.) When it did its “Local on the Eights” it almost always included the local record highs and lows with their respective years.
When I first heard the CAGW hype following Al’s CGI glaciers collapsing, that didn’t seem to agree with my impression of when high and low records occurred for my little spot on the globe.
I copy/pasted the record highs and lows for each day from the local NWS site into Excel. I used the Sort function to line them up by year and then “Count”. using 50 years before and after 1950. (Better ways to do all that, but I’m “Mr. Layman” and I was only out to satisfy my own curiosity. (And this was 5 years before I found WUWT.))
Most of the record highs were set before 1950 and most or the record lows were set after 1950.
Inconvenient for Al’s hype.

Thanks for the article and the record high temperature data.

Most people really don’t understand the actual molecular physics causing greenhouse gas warming to be so concentrated in the coldest places of the Northern Hemisphere during the coldest times of year.

On a similar planet with the exact same dynamics taking place, where everything was the same except climate science was honest, there would be celebrating over this gift of warmth, exactly where it’s needed the most…….in the bitter coldest places.

On this planet (earth) the last 4 distinct periods with similar to even warmer temperatures, and humans in existence but not burning fossil fuels, science referred to those periods as climate OPTIMUM’S.


Now, we call that mostly beneficial warmth a CRISIS. The extra CO2 compared to those periods this warm makes it even more beneficial since sub 300 ppm CO2 for plants was very deficient.

Since CO2 absorbs LW radiation between 12 to 19 microns and overlaps with H2O at many wavelengths, adding CO2 has minimal warming when there’s a great amount of H2O in that air mass.


H2O is 95% of the greenhouse gas warming and swamps CO2, especially at the bands they overlap at. However, in very cold/dry places, there isn’t enough H2O to saturate wave bands where it overlaps with CO2. As a result, CO2 plays a much bigger role in absorbing LW radiation in very cold/dry air.

The warmer and more humid an air mass is…………the more saturated the H2O wavebands absorbing LW radiation are and the less opportunity there is for CO2 to play a role at those overlapping wavelengths.
This is why greenhouse gas warming from CO2 is less and less, the warmer and more humid the air is.
Recent heat waves and records in mid and lower latitudes were likely a degree C or so hotter because of the increased CO2 in the air but the contribution to greenhouse gas warming from CO2 is extra swamped by all the water vapor during the Summer in mid/low latitude locations.

This is what makes it so ludicrous, when some of these places (like the UK) break records by several degrees and we hear that CO2 caused it to be so extreme.
It’s the complete opposite. The more extreme the pattern/temperature, the more independent it is from global warming and the more tied to a natural weather variation.

A bit of an exception in the warm season are deserts/very dry air masses and of course higher latitudes that are drier.
The most humid places(absolute not relative humidity) in the Northern Hemisphere have experienced the LEAST amount of warming.

The Southern Hemisphere has much more ocean which takes many times more energy to warm than land and thus the warming is lagging in the SH.

The image included shows how the year averaged warming anomaly is several times greater in the coldest places of the Northern Hemisphere than most places in the Northern Hemisphere.


Below, at these links you will see this principle in action over the Southern Hemisphere right now. Note the strong positive anomaly over and around the South Pole/Antarctic that stands out like a sore thumb. This is a feature that dominates for much of the Winter and is being caused by CO2, greenhouse gas warming that dominates because the air is so cold/dry there.

In a few months, when daylight returns this anomaly will disappear and a new one, for the same reason will develop in and around the Arctic and last much of the Winter there.

With the West’s designer-brained leadership having foist a now unavoidable societal disaster on the world that will be far more costly and with more casualties than the policies of 20th Century Madmen in total, it is fitting that these mediocre corporals were predestined to be failures. They are starting to be kicked out of office but those remaining “will fail to back out that door” though they be ultimately killing hundreds of millions at the low end of estimates.

But! I claim an exemption for Al Gore.

Wouldn’t surprise me a bit if I heard that he palms money from the collection plate. And those are his good qualities. SPIT!!

Draw a line down the middle of a sheet of paper and put the people he has helped in the lefthand column and the people he has harmed in the righthand column. In the LH column is a single entry, himself, Al Gore. In the righthand column and continuing for 856,902 pages are all the people he has harmed or scammed. (They are still working on that list.)

July 25, 2022 12:59 pm

From the above article:
“Apart from his personal energy extravagance, Gore has made some embarrassing public mistakes over the years when it comes to science.”

Well, he’s continuing to this day to make such embarrassing mistakes!

In an “interview” on NBC’s Sunday July 24 Meet the Press TV program, Al Gore spouted off a bunch of misinformation and falsehoods, among the worst of which were this (referring to an image of the “thin blue line” of the Earth’s atmosphere as photographed nearly edge-on and enlarged as a backdrop to him):
“You know, what you see behind me is a picture from the space station showing how thin the atmosphere is. If you could drive to the top of that blue line, drive straight up in the air at interstate highway speeds, you’d get to the top of that line in about five minutes.”
— direct quote from transcript of interview available at https://www.nbcnews.com/meet-the-press/meet-press-july-24-2022-n1297457

Now, how utterly stupid is that!  Let’s assume an “interstate highway speed” of 70 mph. That’s about 1.17 miles per minute. So five minutes at that speed would cover a distance of 5.83 miles, or about 9.4 km.

Most of the world scientists familiar with Earth’s atmosphere agree that the “top of the atmosphere” is conveniently defined to be at an altitude of ~100 km:
“. . . for scientists studying the balance of incoming and outgoing energy on the Earth, it is conceptually useful to think of the altitude at about 100 kilometers above the Earth as the ‘top of the atmosphere.’ “

So, Mr. Al Gore—self-proclaimed “climate expert” and Nobel Prize winner that he is—only missed the actual depth of Earth’s atmosphere (that “blue line”) by an order-of-magnitude!

Moreover, most commercial wide-body jet aircraft flying today can operate at altitudes up to 40,000 feet (7.6 miles) and many private business jet can fly higher, up to about 45,000 feet (8.5 miles) altitude. So, as Al Gore ventures about in his (chartered) private jets or even demeans himself to take a commercial passenger jet flight, he has been apparently oblivious to the fact that he is flying above the altitude where he thinks the atmosphere ceases to exist.

Finally, it is hilarious to see what a fool Gore makes of himself otherwise in that NBC Meet the Press interview . . . and how show host Chuck Todd presents himself to be a pampering, fawning, bootlicking admirer of Gore by not challenging a single statement made by him, and even going so far as this (again, taken directly from the transcript):
I’m not going to let you go without asking you this: Australia’s election was a climate change election. And you talked about, “In order to get that political will.” Jay Inslee tried to run a climate-focused campaign and it didn’t get off the ground. Why not you, Al Gore?
Why not me, as a candidate?
Leading a climate change presidential campaign in the future.”

At this point, words fail me.

Climate alarmists are like the Democrats working to elect Hillary Clinton who commissioned a fake dossier on Donald Trump to get their way and the Democrats and the media that perpetuated the lie to get their way. Coincidentally most, if not all of them, also happen to be climate alarmists.

The big question is, what is that they want so badly?

Control. They want control. Or power if you will. The power to make you do what they want.

If we only had a simple four letter adjective to describe such behavior: creating lies and unquestioningly perpetuating lies to achieve power and control. Sounds almost biblical.

Here’s a climate study from 2014 pronouncing the 11-year drought of the 1930s as the worst drought in 1,000 years. Seems like I’ve heard this somewhere before . . .

NASA study [from 2014] finds 1934 had worst drought of last thousand years

“A new study using a reconstruction of North American drought history over the last 1,000 years found that the drought of 1934 was the driest and most widespread of the last millennium.

Using a tree-ring-based drought record from the years 1000 to 2005 and modern records, scientists from NASA and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory found the 1934 drought was 30 percent more severe than the runner-up drought (in 1580) and extended across 71.6 percent of western North America.

Ok so I’m trying to ask the skeptics to please explain how you know it’s not real science? I’m not arguing, I’m just trying to understand. There’s so many people saying that we’re doomed, that this is the end, that we’ve gone past any point of return and there’s now nothing we can do. The latest climate report says it’s code red for humanity. They go on about the accelarating rate that the heat and melt is happening. How the arctic is heating up warmer than anywhere in the world, 4 times faster, they go on about how much Greenland is melting and the amount of water going into the ocean. deforestation, major droughts, extreme heatwaves like the ones going on right now in America and over in Britain, people are freaking out, the reports that the warming is happening much much faster than the models could have predicted, that the scientists are downplaying it and not revealing how bad things really are, they say the tipping points have been passed, that positive feedback loops are going to make things very bad and soon, they say this is going to cause the collapse of civilazation, massive food and water shortages, extreme longer droughts, extreme longer heat waves, mass migrations, human extinction, they say all of this IS happening, some are arguing within a couple of years and a lot of people are agreeing with that and defending that it is true, they say that the deniers and skeptics don’t understand the science and make their arguments without providing facts. I don’want any of this to be true, I don’t want to keep feeling like I’ve brought my 8 month old daughter into a doomed world where she has no future or at least a very dark and bleak one so please I’m asking, not because of previous predictions that didn’t come true, not just because of doomsday predictions being made for thousands of years but I’m asking currently, in the present, with everything that people are saying is going on and is happening, how do you know that none of them are correct. Not because of the past but because of the present, with science, how do you know that you’re correct and that they’re wrong? I’m not doubting or arguing, I’m just trying to understand. I’m not trying to come off as alarmist, I’m just terrified and hoping to find that none of this is as bad as they’re making it sound, so please if you have it in you at all to help out a total stranger who is seriously about to lose it, I’m trying not to kill myself, please I am begging for help.

“I’m not doubting or arguing, I’m just trying to understand.”

OK. I believe you.

A good place to start is by reading books on the subject . . . that is, get informed. This site offers links to many good books that provide exactly what you are looking for. For starters, I would recommend the book “Climate at a Glance” by Anthony Watts and James Taylor (advertised at top of this article on far right . . . also a free digital copy is available via https://climateataglance.com/ ) and the book “Politics and Climate Change: A History” by Andy May.

If you are looking for someone to spoon feed you arguments that you can then pass on to others without understanding of the science behind the reasoning, you’ve come to the wrong place . . . the topic of “climate change” is so multifold and complex that no single variable (such as atmospheric CO2 concentration changes) can explain it or be a means to control it.

Knowledge/wisdom, like respect, is something that cannot be handed out . . . it has to be earned.

Seize on the old adage: “The truth shall make your free.”

And trust me when I say that 99% of what the MSM and climate alarmists are fronting these days about climate emergencies and “catastrophic climate change” is pure, unadulterated bull-$hit.

I want them to be very very wrong so I was hoping to find a good debunking but no one seems to be addressing or debunking these claims which makes me worry it can’t be done.

The comments here, links you’ve been given previously, and the archives around here provide plenty of information to show where that “prediction” is wrong.

Bobby K, I suggest you start by pondering all the many UNANSWERED questions that agw proponents haven’t addressed, and use that as your basis for further research to finding that extraordinary evidence that is required to support extraordinary claims (remembering that the onus for observation / evidence / experiment is always on the party making the hypothesis / claims).

Why not start with –
what caused the Little Ice Age?
what ended the Little Ice Age?
what started the Roman Warm Period?
what ended the Roman Warm Period?
what started the 1930s devastating sustained hot weather period and drought in North America (read Grapes of Wrath)?
what ended this unusual prolonged weather event?

The uncontested (and uncontestable) answer to these questions Bobby is that it could not have had anything to do with atmospheric CO2 levels, being as how they were very much lower than they have been since the start to “manmade global warming” claims in the 1970s.

Also, it’s instructive to read the documented history of “extreme weather events”, and accept that there is nothing happening in contemporary times that has not happened to the same or more severity either prior to after the Industrial Revolution.

Just a ~ 4% change in cloudiness exerts more warming / cooling effects on land and oceans than all of man’s measurable contributions of CO2 to the atmosphere.

We need to be able to comprehend natural clouds behaviors before we get bent out of shape over vaunted manmade CO2 influences.

Come along for the information discovery ride here Bobby – it’s very interesting.

Ok so what are your arguments towards those who say that the roman and medevil warm periods were local and not global? That even though climate change in the past has been cyclical and natural that because of human interaction that this is unprecendented and happening at an accerating rate? People in general are very scared at watching what’s happening around and in front of them. Record breaking heatwaves, longer Summers, dangearous wild fires happening more frequently, 100 year storms happening more frequently, people talking about how long they’ve been without rain and there’s no rain in sight for the future, crops failing, people talking about how the weather where they live isn’t the same anymore, it’s warmer when it shouldn’t be and for longer periods, I’ve read comments from people in Alaska who are scared saying it’s not as cold, ice is thawing, they’re having wild fires, people in India are in 120 degree weather and struggling more and more for water and are terrified. There are many people talking on youtube, reddit and a lot of other sources about climate change and so many comments from many people who are scared and talking about how bad things are going to get, doomers are screaming about how screwed we are. If there’s an alternative explanation to all of this that has nothing to do with greenhouse gases getting trapped and causing heat I’m seriously all ears and willing to listen so please.

“Science” is a process of elimination of conjectures (/ hypotheses / theories / paradigms) as more “evidence” — i.e. empirical measurements made by (correctly calibrated) scientific instruments in the real world — becomes available, it isn’t a state of “blind, unswerving belief” in a particular theory or “expert”.

There’s so many people saying that we’re doomed, that this is the end, that we’ve gone past any point of return and there’s now nothing we can do. The latest climate report says it’s code red for humanity.

… they say this is going to cause the collapse of civilization, massive food and water shortages, extreme longer droughts, extreme longer heat waves, mass migrations, human extinction, they say all of this IS happening, some are arguing within a couple of years and a lot of people are agreeing with that and defending that it is true …

The “scientific” response to such claims is something like :
“OK, what supporting evidence do you have for those bald assertions ?”

For genuine scientists it doesn’t matter how many people “agree with” a given opinion, the only thing that matters is : “What does the actual empirical data say ?”

In the past “some have argued” that Arctic sea ice will “disappear” (go below the 1 million sq. km. limit) “within a couple of (or ten) summers”.

Those “some people” turned out to always be wrong.

You are asking an important question but asking it the wrong way.

”how in science, in present times right now you know that you are right and that they’re wrong”

It is not necessary nor possible to prove a negative in most cases. Think of an atheist trying to prove to a religious believer that God doesn’t exist.
Science is not the process of proving one side of a debate wrong. When a scientific hypothesis about the way the natural world works is made, the next step is to make predictions about what one should observe in the real world if the hypothesis is correct. As long as one then tests those predictions against observations in the real world, and finds the observations match the predictions the hypothesis remains possibly true but not proven. As soon as observations are different from the prediction one must assume the hypothesis is in some way wrong.

All of the scary end-of-times predictions you have been reading are like the predictions of a hypothesis. None of them have come true and many of them are past their prediction date and therefor negate the hypothesis. Most of these predictions were made from computer climate models which, if the makers of those models were honest, would have been tossed aside as not fit for purpose. The models are essentially the hypothesis and the hypothesis has been invalidated.

Having said that, all you can conclude is the people making scary predictions are using invalidated hypotheses to do so and should not be taken seriously. The next step is to ask who has valid hypotheses and models of climate we can still rely on based on predictions that match observations. So far the most accurate climate model is Russian and it predicts very modest warming of no concern, uses a climate sensitivity for atmospheric CO2 on the very low end, and predicts temperatures close to what have been observed.

All the tabloid fixation on heat waves, floods, fires, melting ice, etc. is not scientific evidence. It is a long list of scary anecdotes and all the events reported are events that happened in the past just as they do now. Unless there is a statistical change in the frequency or severity of such events that is persistent over time you can’t and should not conclude anything from these anecdotes. Remember it is colder now than it has been for several thousand years. The warming measured in the last 100-150 years is trivial and more beneficial than harmful as far as life int eh biosphere is concerned. What would be catastrophic is a return to full ice age conditions of 18,000 years ago (a spec of time in human and Earth history) and that outcome is far more likely that rapid out of control warming.

Finally expertise and consensus mean nothing. I am a physician and scientist and can tell you most of what is published by experts and agreed to in consensus documents in the medical field is without real scientific merit, and very frequently with more scientific investigation is proven false and potentially harmful. It is money, drive for reputation and drive for power that makes this the case. Being correct isn’t a requirement to publish, be an expert, or run a scientific organization.

Bobby, stop putting so much emphasis on “science.” Science can’t create a computerized crystal ball no matter how sophisticated the model. A “global average temperature” isn’t science, it’s a math trick. The reality is that scientists are flawed humans like everybody else and sometimes they present science in a deceitful way. Sometimes they outright lie.
Go take a walk outside, wherever you live, and ask yourself if it has become unlivable there due to rising average temperatures. I can’t think of any place on Earth that has become a ghost town because of a rising global average temperature or sea level. Trust your own 5 senses. Go to the beach, climb a mountain, go skiing, or river rafting. It’s a beautiful world and will be for eons.

You may find that the older you become the more you begin to recognise that much of what younger people claim to be unprecedented is not that different from what you may have experienced whilst younger. However you need to take into account the amount of time the current generation spend living in artificially controlled climates in homes, offices, cars, public transport such as they have lost the ability to adapt to natural conditions outdoors. Perhaps ask the old people who have spent the majority of their life outdoors and see how much different the extreme events now are different to those a lifetime ago.
I will concede that perhaps wild fires may be more severe, but given the extra growth due to the CO2 fertilisation effect and the tendency for the authorities to extinguish smaller fires that would regularly reduce the forest fuel loads, it is inevitable that any subsequent fires will have larger fuel loads than what would have occurred if man had let nature run it’s course.

To think that our governments are spending billions, on “climate change”, based on this fool’s predictions.

I believe there was one officer who attempted to enter the classroom to save his wife. He was physically stopped by the consensus.
Mr. Gore needs to revise his analogy.

Al Gore is not about to admit that the Uvalde police officers were—ahem—frozen in fear.

Non-sequitor there, Fat Albert. The Uvalde threat was real. Your ‘climate’ crap is hypothetical bullshit.

The former called for decisive action; the latter does not.

And ironically, far more misery, suffering and death will result if people heeded your bullshit than if they ignored it.

For the analogy to work, the police would have had to descend on the school, sans any kind of a shooter, and take out 20% of all the kids (not just that fourth grade room … the whole school), with the follow up justification:

“a school shooter may come, someday in the future, and if there are less kids in the way at that time, then we will be better able to do our jobs and stop the shooter (in that projected future).”

The police do NOT have an obligation to put their lives in danger. On the other hand, the military members are expected to get killed in the performance in the military.

PS: Yes, I am a veteran with an Honorable Discharge, and about one year in my service, I realized that fact. I also reenlisted after my first term, but I didn’t after that, as I was being “Divorce-raped” by ex-wife.

“On the other hand, the military members are expected to get killed in the performance in the military.”

Oh, so wrong on so many levels.

Didn’t you ever watch the movie Patton, where actor George C. Scott playing General Patton of WWII fame, delivers these immortal words:
“Now, I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.”

Words to live by, literally.

If I ever have the chance I’m going to plant Al Gore’s butt on top of a fence post. Lord knows he can’t get there himself.
