RON HART: Al-Gore-Jazeera and his global gouging

Published: Sunday, January 20, 2013 at 05:03 PM.

Last week was one of many in the last few years that Al Gore regretted “inventing" the Internet.

He is catching a lot of heat (none of which can be regulated and taxed with carbon emissions control legislation) for selling out, figuratively and literally, to the big-oil, Middle Eastern potentate who owns Al-Jazeera. It's yet another inconvenient truth in Gore’s life.

Gore made a tidy $100 million selling his floundering Current TV at the end of 2012, right before Mr. "Pay Your Fair Share’s" taxes were scheduled to go up. Gore will keep the profits, unless the Supreme Court intervenes and gives the money to George Bush.

There have been many inconvenient truths surrounding Al Gore, chief among them that only a small fraction of women who do massages are hookers.

When accused of attacking a masseuse, he maintained his innocence even as other women came forward to support the charge. The masseuse accused Gore, winner of the liberal Triple Crown (Nobel Prize, Grammy and Oscar), of inappropriate sexual behavior in his Beverly Hills hotel room prior to the Academy Awards.

One masseuse who voted for Gore was talked out of pressing charges by her liberal friends. She told police that Gore “had a dramatic display of violent temper as well as an extremely dictatorial commanding attitude besides his 'Mr. Smiley Global Warming Concern' persona.” It seems Gore left some of his carbon footprint on her outer garment. Gore the massage-gynist? He can’t be; he is a Democrat — like Ted Kennedy and John Edwards.

That is why it is all the more sad that Al Gore did not follow Bill Clinton as president, assuring us continuity of government.
