Gore Wins

Al Gore won the Oscar last night and the Supreme Court can't do anything about it. Oh, that his mock announcement of candidacy weren't so mock!

Al Gore was right about the first Persian Gulf War. He was right about the internet. He was right about global warming. He was right about the second Iraq War. That's an impressive record of clear-sightedness on some of the most important issues of our day.

Moreover, there is something mythic about his emergence after defeat in 2000. He has been liberated. The new Gore is more authentic, more passionate, and a better communicator. And hey, even the old Gore was able to win a majority of the votes in a national election.

Al Gore ought to be President. These nice people are trying to get him to run. Sign their petition and maybe throw some bucks their way if you can.
