You don't say.

Bush not likely to see Gore's film

And the winner of the Palm D'Or for Best Implementation of Unintended Self-Parody--

Speaking Saturday in France at the Cannes Film Festival about global warming, [failed Presidential aspirant Albert Arnold, Jr.] Gore said, "I even believe there is a chance that within the next two years, even (President) Bush and (Vice President) Dick Cheney will be forced to change their position on this crisis," he said. "One can only attempt to create one's own reality for so long. Reality proper has a way of insisting itself upon you."

Spoken like a true alpha male.

Reality insisting itself is why Albert is walking around in plaid shirts, shrieking at crowds, and making boring documentaries instead of leading the free world.

Reality's got its head screwed on right, I think.

I'm just thankful he's doing all that shrieking and junk over in Cannes. They have an appreciation for it.

I read a long article about him this morning in New York Magazine.

Seems it was daughter Karenna's advice to listen to Naomi Wolf.

Apparently certain New Yorkers, Washingtonians, and Californians (read Hollywood) are fitting up a bandwagon for him to run again in 2008.

The Democrats are forgetting flyover country again.

Oh, and the new film, which is about global warming, also includes references to his son's near-fatal accident and his sister's cancer. I think neither of those can be attributed to global warming.

Supposedly, it was after those events that he determined his passion is for environmental issues. Somehow, that whole connection bothers me.

What the hell is wrong with all those people?

The insistence of reality, ignored.

The article is worth a read. It's pretty fair.
