Imagine some of the ingenious things Al might say. A shining example:
“…notwithstanding the president’s political skills, his performance in office amounts to a catastrophic failure.”
Thanks, Al. We all know that you would be doing so much better.
Then there’s this:
“A clear majority of Americans believe that we are heading in the wrong direction. The reasons are obvious. The situation in Iraq is getting worse. Osama bin Laden is alive and plotting against us.”
The usual mainstream media bleakness, stretched to an entertaining degree. And don’t forget the obligatory mention of “Mr. Bush’s colossal tax break for the wealthy,” as well as some less-than-good-natured ribbing about Bush’s problem with alcohol 30 years ago.
The entire column is completely factual, well-cited, and not the least touch hatefully bitter, might I add. Read the gloriously insightful Gore op-ed piece on the New York Times website.
