He Misplaced the Thorazine Again

Al Gore is running at the mouth again, this time in Sweden. (It was mentioned by someone that he never says this tripe in the States where someone can get in his face and call him on his delusions).

Let's start with the one thing he got right.
Former Vice President Al Gore said Wednesday he had no intention of ever running for president again, but he said the United States would be "a different country" if he had won the 2000 election...
umm... yeah, and we're kind of happy that the Electoral College is alive and well. Let's see... if he had won the election (oh, wait! Did he just admit that he actually lost? Be still my heart!), our taxes would be through the roof, the recession that Clinton gave us would probably be a full fledged economic depression, there would be severe restrictions on the Internet, and... sorry, I can't go on... I'm scaring myself.

Now, let's see what else he had to say...
"We would not have invaded a country that didn't attack us," he said, referring to Iraq.
Mr. Gore, do you mean the country whose leader committed mass murder? Do you mean the country whose leader was overtly funding terrorism? Do you mean the country whose leader was helping to train terrorists? Do you mean the country whose leader and his sons stole millions of dollars of aid while their people starved? Yeah... that's what I thought...
"We would not have taken money from the working families and given it to the most wealthy families."
The across the board tax cut? How did that take money away from anyone but the government? If that's your definition of "working families," then you're more out of touch than I thought...
"We would not be trying to control and intimidate the news media."
Of course you wouldn't be trying to control and intimidate the news media. They were on your side! The only people trying to "control and intimidate" the news media are... wait for it... the "Digital Brownshirts" in the blogosphere. Bloggers fact-check the media and make sure that everyone knows the blatant bias of the Main Stream Media. Those are the people you would be trying to control and intimidate. Too bad. So sad.
"We would not be routinely torturing people," Gore said.
Excuse me? "Routinely torturing" people? Please tell me you're not talking about the military's treatment of POWs... Detainees in Gitmo have more to eat and better health care than they'd have in their home countries. Detainees in Afghanistan and Iraq can pretty much say the same thing about their care. The only "torture" was carried out by a small group of people who were punished for their crimes.
He said the United States and other countries are similarly ignoring the threats that global warning pose to the environment.

"My country is extremely attentive to the slightest increase in a risk from terror, and that's appropriate," he said. "But why should we be so tolerant of risk where the future habitability of our planet is concerned?"
Global warming? But... I thought the planet was cooling. I thought the sun was warming everything in the solar system. I thought... I thought... oh, yeah... I remember what I thought. Gore, Mr. "Combustion Engines are Evil but I drive an SUV", would rather our society turned back to a more... organic, primitive time. This from the man who created the Internet.

Mr. Gore, should the United States be tolerant of risks to our security, especially risks from people who give aid and comfort to the enemy by spreading lies and half-truths around the globe? That is what you were doing, in case you hadn't realized it. You were talking down your country, emboldening our enemies, possibly putting our military men and women in danger.

I'd tell you to think about that before you open your mouth again, but I know better. You can't help yourself.
