A comment by HeckBoy on Everyday Hero stands up to Al Gore the Scaremonger
My favorite Algore moment was during the 2000 presidential debates. GW was answering a question and Algore 'invaded' his personal space, puffing himself up and trying to look like some playground bully. GW just laughed him off and kept going.
It was the dumbest thing Algore had ever done in public - up until he declared himself the champion of global warming. The sad thing is all the people who run around behind him, giving him money and hanging onto his every word.
Algore is one of the original "phoney soldiers", having claimed to have patrolled the perimeter, shooting first and asking questions later. Then it turned out he was patrolling with a typewriter.
