After Al Gore lost the 2000 election because he was boring, he gained 400 pounds and grew a beard. Then America and all the world loved him! He made a movie about how the Earth is melting, and then he won a Swedish Prize, and soon a back-room deal at the Democratic National Convention will make him our president again. That is, unless President Barack Obama decides to give him some sort of shadow government post as the Climate Change Czar. Rumors are already afoot!
A woman in a town-hall forum yesterday asked Barack Obama if he’d consider giving Al Gore a high-level post in his administration, and Obama said “Of course! I would pretty much make him president, if that would persuade you to vote for me!” No actually he said “I will make a commitment that Al Gore will be at the table and play a central part in us figuring out how we solve this problem [of climate change]. He’s somebody I talk to on a regular basis. I’m already consulting with him in terms of these issues but climate change is real.”
So he and Al are wonderful comrades in plotting a resurgence of global Socialism so robust it will make the Wobblies weep. Also Gore called Bill Richardson and said he wanted his beard back, but Richardson could keep the fat.
