Rolling Stone agrees with me that Al Gore-- America's own block of wood/Robot-Mars Lander -- pick your metaphor, is the Democrats' ideal candidate. As if you didn't know, "Run Al Run" by Tim Dickinson, pretty much clues you in as to where Rolling Stone stands on a Gore candidacy.
James Carville, who qualifies as an expert, says he'd be "shocked" if Gore didn't run. So would I. A Republican consultant, Frank Luntz, positively gushes that ALGORE is: ". . . an icon. Imagine that: Al Gore, Mr. Straight and Narrow, Mr. Dull on Wheels -- no he's culturally cool." (emphasis in original).
Cool ? Gore's more boring than the Internal Revenue Code and ten times more dangerous.
The fact that so many millions would crawl on glass for this man and really do believe ALGORE's "cool" tells you all you need to know right there about what's wrong with the Demowackos.
Ever since Katrina, I have been convinced that this man was our collective fate. God help us.
