one for Bartlett's

"Rin-Tin-Tin was a movie star. I just have a slide show."
-Al Gore

OK, we could all go on and on about the science behind global warming, is he a hypocrite, is Gore truly living what he says... but you have to admit, this is a great line.

Lot's of hypocracy in politics... doesn't mean he's wrong, though.

(yes, I am a Gore fan...big deal, you wanna fight about it?)

I, on the other hand, must admit that my enthusiasm for Mr. Gore is quite limited. Of course, that doesn't really make him any different from the many others who habitually infest public offices, or seek to do so.

But I will cheerfully agree that, yes, that is quite a good line. Mad props to Mr. Gore.

Whether you care for Al "I invented the Internet" Gore or not, I can't understand why anyone would want to pay to go listen to his voice...

Al Gore belongs in the same category as Jimmy Carter: effective politician who couldn't make it at (or in Gore's case, to...) the top of his field, but who, in a life after electoral politics, is (I hope, if people are paying attention) going to make a huge contribution to improving the lives of lots of folks. Having said that, I'm not interested in his running for President again (Go Barack! Go John! I hope one of you makes it to the finish ahead of Hillary!) And I probably wouldn't have a beer with him.

I'd rather hear "An Inconvenient Truth" played on an endless loop for the rest of my life than hear George W. Bush mispronounce the word "nuclear" one more time.

What, you mean it isn't really "nook-yu-lur?"

My personal anti-favorite at the moment: "adminishtrashun." Dubya may have been dry for a long time now (or maybe not) -- but in my mind's eye, I can see the neck of that near-empty Jim Beam bottle sticking out of his pocket.

Or how about "The Democrat Party".
