This is the real Albert Gore, Jr.

This editorial in the L.A. Times (I know, I know, can you believe that I'm quoting the stinkin' Los Angeles Times???) points out what I've said about Albert Gore, Jr. his entire political/public life: he's an opportunistic media hound that loves to be smugly superior in his "correctness".

Albert Gore, Jr. couldn't risk being wrong on the Democratic nominee, so he endorses Obama very, very late in the game, to the point of being irrelevant. I guess that being the Veep to Hillary Clinton's husband means nothing in this election? He has no loyalty to the people that elevated him from a Senatorial gig from an obscure Southern state like Tennessee.

You know, come to think of it, that's why the people of his claimed home state rejected him for president in 2000 -- he had no loyalty to us all of that time that he was in Washington. He was all about being condescending Mr. Smarty Pants and claiming to have invented the internet.

Mr. Malcolm, the author of the article, points to an even more scathing post from Joe Gandelman on a site called the Moderate Voice. Mr. Gandelman opines: "Perhaps one day someone will write a chapter about Al Gore in a new book titled 'Profiles In Uncourage.'”

People from other parts of the country often ask me two questions about Albert Gore, Jr.

Number One: Why didn't Tennesseans vote for fellow Tennessean Albert Gore, Jr. when it mattered?
My answer: He's not a Tennessean. He abandoned us when it mattered, and, truthfully, he spent his formative years in Washington, D.C. with his father while Albert Gore, Sr. was serving in the Senate. He continued into Georgetown University without missing a beat. He's a Tennessean in name only, and only when the name is convenient for him.

Number Two: Why do you always call Al Gore by his full name: Albert Gore, Jr.?
My answer: To distinguish him from his father, who was a great man in our country's history. Albert Gore, Sr. was a uniter, a man with friends on both sides of the aisle in Washington. A man with principles and a willingness to get things done. Albert Gore, Jr., on the other hand, is someone that is bitterly partisan and refuses to work on things the matter but have no political upside. In fact, I'll stretch that and say that the only reason that he does anything is to get the credit.

I'm glad that he's being exposed for who he really is.
