Pissypants Crowd Fears Gore

Pissypants Crowd Fears Gore
By Pachacutec

They used to mock him. Now they’re giving him the shrieking orc treatment. The bedwetting team is scared. . . witless. . . of Al Gore and his new movie, An Inconvenient Truth (which you can pledge to see here).

Search for blog entries mentioning Al Gore at Technorati to see how HUGE the buzz is around him now. You’ll see a lot of cheering, enthusastic welcoming of Gore back to the public scene, mixed in with heaping septic mountains of flying wingnut feces. I could provide you with links to show how unhinged and terrified the right wing is of Gore, but I don’t link to them. You know the usual sites and suspects. Technorati will help you see what I’m talking about.

Why do they fear Gore?

Well, for one, he is telling the truth. His message is popular and timely in the post-Katrina era. The energy lobby is furiously lying like Mike McCurry to step on Gore’s message. Gore is the last Democrat to win the national popular vote, and the highest total Democratic vote getter ever. He’s looking relaxed, focused and fearless, and though he says he’s not running for president, insiders seem to doubt him and outsiders are trying to draft him.

What’s more, his signature issue - taking action to avoid global calamity in the form of irreversible climate change - is a potential political game changer.
