Al Gore's Political Epitaph
Something that Dean Barnett wrote on Hugh Hewitt's blog sparked my latent urge to rewrite, and I succumbed. I believe this inadvertent collaboration (which will come as news to Dean!) has reduced Al Gore down to what will surely be history's epitaph when he finally withdraws himself from the public sphere (which will be like finally shaking a rock out of your shoe).
Here is what Dean wrote:
After watching hours of the erstwhile Veep’s congressional testimony, I think I finally understand him . Ultimately, he is a tragic if unsympathetic figure. Has there ever been a man who so desperately hungered for greatness who was so thoroughly suffused with mediocrity?
And here is the epitaph that sums up, I believe, the "erstwhile Veep's" entire adult life:
Heck, that's all I wanted to say.

Parker and Stone got it right.
He has no friends.
He craves attention.
He's willing to do enormous harm to get attention.
You want to pity him but he's too creepy/weird to hang out with.

Scott at Scrappleface has a good one:
Under the terms of a bipartisan measure to be introduced next week, Congress would create a new 30,000-person Department of Climate Control headed by a cabinet-level Secretary of Geothermal Management.
“Honest people can disagree on the issue of what causes global warming or whether it’s even a problem,” said one unnamed Democrat Senator, “The important thing is that we appear to do something about it, and the thing Congress does best is levy taxes and create new government jobs.”
Read the whole thing.....too funny!

When you read something that is so true, it is hard not to laugh aloud.
ps - Don't forget about Al, Sr. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree...
