An Inconvenient Candidate

Iain Murray in The Corner is reporting that the Goracle is getting ready for another Presidential bid.

From the Taipei Times:

Al Gore visit postponed. Former US vice president Al Gore will not be able to make it to Taiwan this September to address the issue of global warming, Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Tien Chiu-chin said yesterday. Tien, who invited Gore to visit Taiwan to promote awareness on global warming, told reporters yesterday that she received an e-mail from the Harry Walker Agency, which has the exclusive right to arrange Gore’s speeches, saying that Gore had canceled all his scheduled events in the next six months. The visit to Taiwan had been postponed to next year, she added. Tien said the reason for the cancelation was that Gore was considering a presidential bid.

I’ll be honest…I’m not sure my stomach will be able to take Hillary, (who 50% of the voters say they would never vote for), Silky Pony (who Allahpundit calls the sleaziest candidate), and Algore (ugh, keep reading), all in one Primary. There’s gonna be so much bull to wade through the pundits are going to have to wear boots up to their armpits.

Not that Al Gore hasn’t been annoying enough with all the Global Warming B.S., he actually outdoes himself when speaking of the Bush administration, and foreign policy.

David Horowitz has an excellent article at Front Page called Why We Went To War In Iraq, where he revisits all the same tired, and profoundly retarded arguments we’ve all seen from trolls about the case for the war, WMD’s, The “16 words” Bush used in the State of the Union Address, etc. etc.etc, ad nauseam. Only this time he is addressing the arguments of a highly cynical, arrogant, and malicious Algore, that he makes in his book, The Assault On Reason, not some anonymous, submoronic troll pounding on a computer from his parent’s basement.

A taste:

According to Gore, the sending of American troops to Iraq was an imperial aggression, orchestrated by the president and his advisors who manipulated the evidence, deceived the people, and ignored the UN to carry out their malign intent: “The pursuit of ‘dominance’ in foreign policy led the Bush administration to ignore the United Nations,” writes Gore, showing his utter contempt for the facts. What Bush actually ignored was the French, who built Saddam’s nuclear reactor, collaborated with Saddam’s theft of the “Oil for Food” billions, and threatened to veto any attempt to enforce international law or the UN ultimatum. Bush also ignored the Russians, who supplied two-thirds of Saddam’s weapons, helped him sabotage the UN sanctions, and refused to enforce the UN ultimatum. What Bush did not ignore were the 17 UN resolutions designed to keep the Middle East peace and protect the world from the consequences of its failure. Al Gore did that.

Please read the entire article for old time sake, simply for the enjoyment of seeing these arguments eviscerated so handily, (although sadly, most assuredly not for the last time).
