Question Asked: What Does Al Know That We Don’t?
What does Al know that we don’t? Why, given the opportunity that’s been presented to him on a silver Prius, is this man not going to run for (and win) the presidency of the United States?
Question Answered: Son is Gore’s Al-batross
With Al Gore in the news for battling global warming and Al Gore 3rd in the news for getting toasted, my favorite NYPD detective recalled a story that helps explain how father and son each became a particular kind of loser.
The story was told to the detective by a Secret Service agent some years back as they worked security for a dignitary visiting New York. … The detective recalls the agent saying that he was outside a room where Gore was loudly berating Al 3rd for something to do with school. The agent then overheard the senior Gore say to his son something truly stunning.
“What, do you want to end up like those guys standing outside the door?”
…The detective is the first to say he himself was not actually present when Gore is said to have uttered those words. The agent’s outrage when telling the story sure seemed genuine.
And hell—that’s good enough to report it as fact, right?
What Al Gore knows that we don’t is that the media has never, ever, been fair to him, that no one walks his/her way down the path to the presidency unscathed, and that the target on his back has always been a particular favorite of the very same media on which he is depenedent (as are we, the progressive voters) to be fair if he is to win.
I don’t know that he has it worse than Clinton, or Edwards, or Obama, but he sure hasn’t got it any better, which makes it patently silly to say he’s been handed anything “on a silver Prius.”
