5.0 out of 5 stars A Muckrakers Dream, November 16, 2000
This review is from: Al Gore: A User's Manual (Hardcover)
This book reveals Al Gore's pervasive dishonesty and rampant hypocrisy. Undermines his phony environmentalism by exposing his close ties with Occidental Petroleum and other polluters. Demolishes his credibility on civil liberties by recalling his actions on behalf of Tipper's PMRC. Attacks his credibility as a `War Hero' by revealing how he used his connections to keep out of danger. Shows his flip-flops even on guns and the choice issue. Clearly establishes Gore as a man who pretends to be everything to everyone while acting as toady for the corporate state. No one could support Gore for dogcatcher after reading this book. It will not be outdated by the election, however, since it serves as an example of the failure of the Democratic Party. Why are there now two big business parties? Because of Democrats like Al Gore. BUY IT.

Self-proclaimed global warming prophet and
Renaissance man, Gore is a legend in his own
mind. Inventor of the internet (CNN's Late
Edition:"I took the initiative in creating the
Internet"), movie producer & global
climatologist (recipient of secular progressive
Europe's tree huggers' political award: Nobel
prize), and now, as an expert on the psychology
of torture, Gore informs the world that if the U.
S. violates the Geneva convention, then
terrorists will torture American prisoners of war.
Of course, the reality is that terrorists
actually ignore the Geneva Convention by
torturing and cutting the heads off of American
soldiers around the world. In fact, terrorists -
by definition - also torture, cut heads off of and
blow up helpless civilian men, women, and
children - such as approx 200 Russian school
children blown to pieces by Chechen Muslims
as they screamed Allah Akbar! in blood-thirsty glee.
Of course Gore - and secular progressive -
live in a theoretical world. Meanwhile SECULAR
PROGRESSIVES are brought to tears by the
suffering inflicted upon Al Qaeda by that
vile, horrible, evil cretin President George Bush.

Even if terrorists in reality ignore the Geneva
convention by torturing and slaughtering
soldiers and civilian men, women, and children,
Gore - and secular progressives - will tell you
with a great deal of pride that we must
nevertheless take the morale high ground or the
rest of the world (secular progressive Western &
Eastern Europe, Russia [led by KGB dictator
Putin who has had 14 reporters and high profile
protesters assassinated], and China [butchers of
Tienamin Square] will not like us. Take for
instance China, which has avoided the moral high
ground by burying prisoners in prisons for
decades. China has, indeed, paid a terrible
price for not taking the high morale ground and
being disliked by the rest of the world: hundreds
of billions raked in from countries around
the planet! That leaves France who's President -
Sarkozy - is pro-Bush and pro-U.S with anti-Bush
Chirac long gone. Then there's Germany's Chirac
who's long gone and replaced by new chancellor
Merkel who is pro- US and pro-Bush. Finally
there's Japan and India, long stalwart friends
of the US. That leaves backward, envious,
impotent third world and Muslim countries who
use the UN as a leverage against the U.S. to
achieve their dictators' goals. Yet we're
forced to endure secular progressives'
perennial "whoa is me" moaning about how
the above dysfunctional countries don't love us.

So what does it take for a liberal to be awarded
the most prestigious intellectual award on the
planet? "In his sophomore year at Harvard,
Gore's grades were lower than any semester
recorded on Bush's transcript from Yale. That
was the year Gore's classmates remember him
spending a notable amount of time in the Dunster
House basement lounge shooting pool, watching
television, eating hamburgers and occasionally
smoking marijuana. He received one D, one C-
minus, two C's, two C-pluses and one B-minus, an
effort that placed him in the LOWER fifth of the
class for the second year in a row.

For all of Gore's later fascination with SCIENCE
and technology, he often struggled academically
in those subjects. The political champion of the
natural world received that sophomore D in
Natural Sciences 6 (Man's Place in Nature) and
then got a C-plus in Natural Sciences 118 his
senior year. The self-proclaimed inventor of the
Internet avoided ALL courses in mathematics and
logic throughout college

When John C. Davis, a retired teacher and
assistant headmaster at St. Albans, was recently
shown his illustrious former pupil's college
board achievement test scores, he inspected them
closely with a magnifier and shook his head,
chuckling quietly at the science results.

"Four eighty-eight! Terrible" Davis declared upon
inspecting the future VICE-PRESIDENT'S 488 score
(out of a possible 800) {F minus in science!!!}
in physics. "Hmmmm. Chemistry. Five-nineteen
(out of a possible 800) {F in Chemistry}. He
didn't do too well in chemistry either."

From ninth grade (called Form III in the
Anglophilic St. Albans culture) to his senior
year (Form VI), he earned an equal number of C's
and B's in English, but no A's. In history
during those four years, he also moved BETWEEN
C's and B's.e. He pulled STEADY C's for all
three years of high school French. The ONLY
course in which he received straight A's was ART,
which he took all FOUR years of high school. And
THIS is the intellectual ICON who brought us
"GLOBAL WARMING" and instead of receiving the
usual C or D grade, this intellectual paragon of
secular progressives was "awarded" the NOBEL
PRIZE!!! The state of U.S. and world politics is
sadly illustrated by how easily a non-productive
political loser with FAILING grades accumulates
obscene wealth and secular progressives highest
"intellectual" award!

Fortunately U.S. voters selected a man of real
substance rather than a winner of faux "Noble
Prizes." From an unemotional, practical
viewpoint, two of El Presidente Bush's great
accomplishments are that he stole the Presidency
twice(count em, 1 & a 2). Second, in his eight
years in office, he placed two highly
conservative Republicans on the Supreme Court.
And they will be around for several decades, God
willing. Furthermore, he has placed over 3,000
federal judges on the bench. GOD BLESS George
Bush and burn down all the bath houses in the
Castro district while you're at it.

Three things I love about Vice- President Cheney
is 1) Liberals' visceral hatred of Ann Coulter
is rivaled by their hatred of Vice-
President(what a sw-e-e-e-e-t sound) Dick
Cheney, 2) Cheney skewered John Edwards during
the Presidential debates, 3) Cheney transformed
the Vice-presidency from an impotent institution
into an institution not only co-equal to the
Presidency but also separate and independent of
the Executive office as newly defined by Cheney.
If absolute power corrupts absolutely, Cheney is
one depraved e-v-i-l villain - S-w-e-e-e-e-e-e-
