One Simple Way to Save the Planet: Keep It Zipped

Al Gore’s dalliances are not really the American public’s concern. Captain Planet is no longer a high-ranking public “$ervant” so his alleged lack of judgment does not compromise national security in any way. Though, it may have dire global consequences as we will see shortly.

The matter is between him and Tipper, and judging by their split, it looks like she knew something was going on, but that’s between them.

Recently, Portland police released the lurid details of what transpired between a masseuse and the Cassandra of our times.

I won’t go into them here because quite frankly I don’t care about the details, but if you do you can check it out here:

Sex complaint against Gore is detailed, credible

It is interesting that some of the major media players have stayed mostly mum on this. In fact, looking at the front pages of the sites of some of the big boys like ABC, CBS, Huffington Post, CNN and MSNBC this morning, nary a mention of what the police report said.

This is a tired song but it bears repeating, one wonders if Gore had been a GOP fixture, would the masseuse’s report been a major front page news item on these sites? Would the graphic details (a la “wide stance”) been emblazoned for all to see and snicker at?

Of course, but this is the modus operandi of these outlet’s and there’s nothing wrong with that, you’re supposed to take care of your own, especially when they screw up, right? What are chums for? Besides he gave us the “Internets”, right Dubya? Which without, we would have never had “Twitters”, right Barry?


A profit for our time

Make no mistake about it, these outlets (particularly ABC’s GMA) have been beating Mr. Gore’s drum on our planet’s pyrogenic condition for year$ now. They’re not about to undermine the apocalyptic religion that is anthropogenic global warming (and the whole “green” journalism wing$ it has created for them) by reporting on its chief prophet’s extracurricular activities.

Which brings us to an interesting tidbit in the police report. After the alleged encounter between the masseuse and Gore, the woman told her friends about it. Her friends, “liberals like herself”,

…advised against telling police. One asked her “to just suck it up; otherwise, the world’s going to be destroyed from global warming.”

While I’m not going to go as far as Michael Savage and proclaim that “liberalism is a mental disorder” (it’s not), it’s incredulous that her “liberal” friends truly believed that what stands between annihilation and our continuing existence on planet Earth was Al Gore’s reputation as a husband who keeps the 7th commandment.

To quote one of my son’s DVDs, “All I can is, ‘Wow'”

I Have a Dream… A Capitalist Dream

From Dr. King’s famous and inspiring speech,

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Contrary to popular opinion, Barack Obama’s election to the Presidency was for the most part, a betrayal of Dr. King’s dream. Why? Because his historic victory was buttressed by the many who voted for Sen. Obama, not because of his character, but because of the color of his skin (Columnist Bret Prelutsky makes the same point in Mourning in America).

Then there is this,

King family seeks to cash in on MLK-Obama items

What kind of items? For example, t-shirts like one the woman on the left is wearing in this picture:

Is it just me or does the shot look like a capture from one of those annoying ‘lower your interest rate’ web ads?

According to the story, MLK’s nephew, Isaac Newton Farris Jr., who is the head of the King Center, said this about the merchandise in question,

Some of this is probably putting food on people’s plates. We’re not trying to stop anybody from legitimately supporting themselves, but we cannot allow our brand to be abused.

Our brand, huh? Intere$ting…

On a related note, here is a picture from L.A.,

Wow, some enterprising soul hit a trey from the corner by sneaking Malcolm X into a shirt. I wonder if his people are going to throw their hat into the ring.

The $us$pen$e is riveting…
