I was wondering where Al Gore was...

Last I heard he was the surprise guest at the nutroot convention in Austin a few weeks ago. And then I found this article. I see that yesterday he was at the posh Nantucket home of Chicago investment banker Lou Susman, an Obama adviser for a fundraiser. I wonder why he isn't on TV for Obama? I don't know. Maybe because he's lost his mind. He said regarding global warming to the jet setting, limo riding, much larger homes than they would ever need crowd:

This cause is outside the boundaries of history,” Gore said. “These are not normal times. The relationship between the planet and ourselves has been irrevocably and dramatically altered. We’re a bull in a china shop. Today, as the sun sets, we will have put another 70 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere.”

Then I'm sure he jumped in his SUV to get to his private jet to hurry to the next place he wants to expound on being a complete hypocrite.

But the most chilling line came from John Kerry:

Kerry said the election could also bring a slew of new Democratic senators to Capitol Hill, allowing the party to close in on the “magic number of 60” that would be enough to stop a Republican filibuster.

“If we win the presidency, we’re going to have the first moment of progressive legislating since Lyndon Johnson was president of the United States,” Kerry said.

Good grief. Imagine.
